I am going to be in New York City from July 3rd-July 7th. I don't want to cram pack the days with tons of things to see and do. This will be my first trip to the city.
I for sure want to do a walking tour of Brooklyn. I am looking at booking that on the Thursday or Friday. The other days are somewhat open. I am unsure how to plan the day of the 4th. I will be staying at the Eventi Hotel. I would like some shopping, but more local or less expensive in the thrift store realm. I will be traveling with my mom, who is not as adventurous as I am. So, please keep that in mind.
Oh and I love food-so good restaurants or eateries are a must. I should comment not real expensive, I am traveling on a teaching salary.
Any suggestions for a proposed itinerary or should I just pick a neighborhood and explore?
