Here's what I want to do:
*Ellis Island - never been there and my greatgreatgrandpa emigrated to the U.S back in the day. And as a U.S History student I probably should have been to Ellis Island already. We'll check out Statue of Liberty on our way there.
*The Met - been there about a half a dozen times, but want husband to see it
*Museum of Natural History - been there a couple of times as well, but I think husband will enjoy it
*Central Park - would not miss Central Park, love it! Perhaps combined to the Met visit
*day of subwaying - I think NYC subway system is an experience for husband. He's been to the Helsinki metro, but that's it :) We'll check out some districts while we do this, so general sightseeing day
*shopping til the credit cards max out, yup, that's my plan :)
I find it really hard to think what would be important, since I've seen all the major attractions. I don't think waiting in line to see Empire State Building was worth it (nor do I want to pay to skip the line) and visiting the Statue of Liberty was kinda boring too. I'd rather just check it out from the ferry. If we had more time I'd love to go Coney Island, but considering how little time we have, we might have to skip it.
What do you guys think of my list? Have any good suggestions for a first time visitor?
