My husband and I (30s) are coming to NYC next month for 3 nights, it will be his first trip and I've been a handful of times, but havn't been to the city since 2016, so I'll be his tour guide basically. We are staying in LIC, I've stayed in LIC a couple times before and have no qualms riding the subway into the city, I want to show him some of the boroughs too. Arriving in and out of LGA.
We arrive noon time on a Saturday, planning on taking subway to our hotel. Then was planning on hitting the Midtown sights; Grand Central Station, Times Sq, Bryant Park, Madison Sq Park, possibly down to Washington Sq Park - time depending. Any recs for a rooftop bar?
On the Sunday, I was thinking a nice brunch somewhere, preferably outside sidewalk dining watching the world go by - any recs? Then going to Coney Island, want to ride the Cyclone (regret not doing it on previous trips), hit up Nathans, Rubys, make our way back to the city, stopping in DUMBO for pizza, Brooklyn Bridge Park area, walk the bridge back into the city.
Monday - Central Park day, checking out Zabars, Grays Papaya, and Levains too. Then we have tickets for the Yankees game that night, my husband wants to try a chopped cheese, unsure whether to get from just any bodega or go to Blue Sky Deli ? -- also my husband is very intrigued by bodegas and wants bacon, egg and cheeses for breakfast, I imagine there should be plenty of bodegas around our hotel in LIC.
Tues - Our flight leaves at 7pm. Plan on exploring Lower Manhattan that day, Staten Island Ferry, High Line, Greenwich Village, SoHo, Tribeca, Chinatown etc.., want to check out the new Little Island.
Any thoughts? Better days to do certain things?
Interests are sightseeing, exploring, breweries, good eats, baseball, soaking in the city.
