Hi, we are arriving at Newark at midday on October 6th. We plan to take the airtrain/ train to New York Penn station, and then walk the couple of minutes to our hotel - The Hampton Inn Madison Square Gardens at 116 West 31st Street.
So, I am thinking that, all being well, we will be checked in and settled by 3.30. ( Which may have involved leaving bags, going for a coffee and going back to check in at 3.00).
We have a nywaterways twilight cruise booked for 7.30, and as we will have to pick up tickets, I was thinking we would need to leave for that at about 6.00.
We are going to go after the cruise for our look at Times Square.
So - at last - my question is, if this time scale all works out, what would you recommend we do between 3.30 and 6.00ish? Something that makes us feel we are in New York, but isn't too far away.
I have our schedule loosely planned for our other days, but I'm not sure what to slot in here. Not shopping though!!
