We had 5 days to see the best parts of the city and I thought I would share our favourite parts of each day. Also, as a side note, I thought I would mention that we did more walking in Manhattan than we did in Canada. In combination with the subway (which was cheap and easy to use) It really is the best way to explore the city. Oh - you should check out Phils photos for our full NY experience.
Day 1: Cycling Central Park and Top of the Rock
We hired bikes at Central Park Bike Rentals and had two hours to ride around the park. Turns out it is not as flat as you think and two hours is not as long as you need (but we did manage to ride around all of it). We saw the key spots we wanted - Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Lake and the Strawberry Fields.
That afternoon we got to look down on the park from the Rockefeller Building. I felt like Liz Lemon a little bit as I got annoyed with the crowds, but still it was a fantastic start to our NY visit.
