    I was going to suggest that you visit Ellis Island....that is a great place to visit.

    How about the Museum of Natural History? Oops,,never mind I see it...really need to actually wear my glasses!

    I've been using Mapquest to plan routes by foot/transport. When it says TRANSIT - does this apply to a bus or the underground?

    Sounds like a lovely trip!!

    When you go to Rockefeller Center, Around what becomes the skating ring in winter there are a few restaurants and cafes, you can sit down and enjoy a nice meal with a pretty nice view of the statue :)

    Have you considered visiting the Met, the MoMa or the Guggenheim? The Met is huge, but spectacular. MoMa is smaller, and the Guggenheim is just magnificent, it is small, and the building its housed in is just wonderful

    I've never heard of them Mari!!!!! Told you I knew very little about New York :lol:
    Will have to Google them now though :yes:

    I'll try Kate - probably a live trippie from the hotel room that night. I've heard that the zoo is tiny.
