I'm going to NYC at the end of April, ok, maybe that's not so spontaneous after all, but with the long distance flight and getting organized it feels as if I don't have much time. There seem to be so many NCY experts on this board that I thought I could get great tips here. The situation: I'm going with my cousin who has never left Europe before, without kid and husband. I've been to NYC at least 20 times, but never for longer than 48 hours and usually only did some shopping, grab a snack and sleep a lot as I was always exhausted from work. We are staying at Madison/6th Avenue, so I think there are many interesting things in walking distance. My questions: I've reserved tickets for the 9/11 memorial, they are for 11 am. Do we have to be there at 11am sharp or can we come anytime between 11 and 12? I love rooftop bars, what are the best ones? I'm not sure if we should see a broadway show, mainly because of the jet lag which makes evening adventures so tiring, but if we do, are there shows with tickets available on the same day? I would be grateful for breakfast tips, I remember that finding nice breakfast spots has always been the biggest challenge for me. Thanks!
