Ok ... starting to get excited about our upcoming New York trip for Thanksgiving!!  My daughter was in the top 10% at her cheer camp this summer & was invited to be in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.  I went to NYC once on spring break in college.  Quite an experience.  Told myself that I would bring my daughter up there one day when she was 18 or 19.  Never imagined we’d be going up there with her being 13.  The cheer organizers have quite an agenda lined up for us.  We’ll be going to a Broadway play, Empire State Bldg, Rockette’s Christmas show and a few other items.  Not to mention the practice she’ll have to be going to at the NBC Studios which is cool in itself.
We have one free day to do what we want.  We‘re going to see the Twin Towers site and head to Hoboken to visit Carlor’s Bakery (my daughter is a Cake Boss fan).  What are some must see’s in New York?  We also plan on heading to FAO Schwartz and Katz Deli.  Any suggestions are welcome!

    • I love New York! My husband and I have been a few times and it’s one of our favorite cities. As far as things to do and see, we have a few members here who can give you the ins and outs. When we‘re there we just put our walking shoes on and head out as well as take in a show.  

      Have a great time!! If you want really wonderful Italian food we like La Vineria not far from Times Square.

    • As a Native New Yorker, I feel proud to give you some spots you don’t usually hear about. The usual tourist spots are not going to be open in November, however, if you‘re dressed properly, hop the subway and go to the Bronx Zoo or Coney Island’s NY Aquarium.  

      Greenwich Village is a great place to visit, as well as Chinatown and Little Italy. Saturday is a good day to visit Chinatown for the dim sum brunches, just follow the crowds (the more Chinese eating in the restaurant, the better the food usually is). The largest and oldest library is on 5th Avenue & 42nd Street, you will get to meet the two lions that guard the entrance. And if anyone wants to know their names are Patience & Fortitude.  

      Make sure you take the Staten Island Ferry just to see the city from the Hudson River, awesome photo op. The crown of Lady Liberty should be back open and that means if you feel like climbing those almost 400 steps, it’s worth the trip. South Street Seaport is nice to relax, a couple of nice restaurants around the area.

      We even have a couple of monasteries, the biggest one is The Cloisters in upper Manhattan. My favorite museums are Metropolitan Museum of Art and Museum of Natural History with Hayden’s Planetarium behind it. Museum Mile will provide you with days of things to look at.

      Enjoy yourself!
