by rubyshoes » Jul 30, 2013 I am excited! DH and I were planning to visit NYC last year and Hurricane Sandy hit on the day of our departure But we're planning to visit in mid-August for 4 days (have to buy tickets tonight!). The last time I visited NYC was in 1984 so really it's like visiting for the first time. Where do you suggest we stay and what are the must-do things according to you? We are definitely doing the following- Central Park Tea at the Plaza (Hello Eloise!!!) Diamond District and trip to DBL (and maybe a side-trip to GOG?) Statue of Liberty (Are the lines horrible? Is there a way to bypass lines?) Broadway show 'Lucky Guy' (Nora Ephron-Tom Hanks fan here!) Anything else? Thanks in advance!
