My name is Bonnie and I am 60 years old. I am from Burlington, next to Toronto in Canada. We travel quite a lot with my husband. Lately, we have visited most of the Caribbean Islands and Europe (Germany, Italy, Great Britain, Ireland, France…). But it is my first trip to New York, even though it is the third one for my husband. We are staying five days in New York.
We went to the MoMA, to the Museum of Natural History, to the Guggenheim Museum. We took bus tours downtown and uptown, and we went on a harbor cruise. We also plan to go to the Empire State Building and to Central Park. We really enjoyed the MoMA because you can see lots of works from famous artists such as Picasso, Matisse, and Warhol. We didn’t attend any temporary exhibition though.
We are planning to see a Broadway show tomorrow, but we don’t know yet which one. We’ll go to TKTS to see what is available at a reasonable price.
We went to a very nice Cuban restaurant located at 27 W 38th Street, between 5th & 6th Avenues. There was an entertainment the night we had dinner there and the atmosphere is very good, the service is excellent and it is not expensive.
Overall, we found New York very impressive. We feel like we didn’t have enough time to see everything and I think that you have to come back over and over again to see it all here. The harbor cruise was really our best experience: the panorama was so wonderful! However, we had a bad experience with the New York CityPass because we though we won’t have to do the line but these are not tickets, so we still had to do the lines! If you want to come to New York, stay in Midtown: you have all the restaurants, all the attractions, and it is convenient to walk everywhere.
