And we only have one day!
If I told you that we could visit Central Park, Times Square, the 9-11 Memorial, Rockefeller Center, and the largest Gothic Cathedral in the world all in the same day would you believe me? Oh and I forgot to mention, we would also sail by the Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island, see the Brooklyn Bridge, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, the Wall Street Bull, the NY Stock Exchange, and Wall Street! That's right, in one day!
Have your walking shoes on (flip flops not recommended!) and get ready for a well-paced adventure as we hop on and off the subway, take a ferry ride and jump in a taxi if necessary. You are going to see more of NYC in one day than you could have ever imagined!
The Big Apple awaits us! Depending on where you are staying, I will map out the best order in which to see all the sights mentioned! It is always possible to make adjustments on the day if desired to spend more or less time visiting any of the sights. It's your day, we'll spend the time to best suit your interests!

Our first visit to New York, our first morning and we met Doug in our hotel lobby.. after a brief introduction we were on our Way. Doug's knowledge of all the places we visited, the buildings we could see from a far and the other places we want to visit is unbelievable. We had a fantastic day and having Doug with us has helped us find our bearings and plan our weekend of adventure in this unbelievable City. Doug thank you very much for being part of our family on our 1st day in NYC!!
