Well done on using the subway... I found the MTA app invaluable, and the subway much easier to get around than I had expected.
Loved the 9/11 memorial such a beautiful space, we walked both ways as I was still scared of the subway at that point! We would have got lost for sure without turning my data on and using google!

We are planning our first trip next July with DS 16 and DD 13, same ages as your boys.
Half wishing we were just going back to Florida again to what we know but promised something special for next year.
Flights booked and looking for hotels. Came across your trip report looking for posts about Broadway Plaza.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your 1st day and just wanted to say hi before I continue reading the rest of your trip report.
I feel very much out of my comfort zone planning this one so need tons of research/advice/help...

Aah thank you, and hi to you too 😊 That's exactly how we felt too, just wanted the comfort of Florida but we really enjoyed our trip, would definately recommend the broadway plaza, the room was fantastic and we saved a fortune on Breakfast! If there's anything I can help with feel free to ask

I have read all your trip report and loved it. Very inspirational

I'm a bit shocked at the prices of the hotels. Is it best to book early or wait till nearer the time?
Think we might have to cancel Christmas this year and remortgage the house. Makes Florida prices look very cheap

Thank you for reading
I have no idea I'm afraid, we just booked kind of impulsively through Expedia so didn't really compare any prices.

I lived in the city for almost thirty years - but moved to the country after marrying DH. And for like the first SIX MONTHS, it would take me hours to fall asleep. It was just TOO quiet.

But then I got used to it - and now being in places like New York - every noise wakes me. Curse the man who invented that backing up beeper thing on the bin lorries! Even eight floors up we could hear it!

PS: I see that you and I share a fondness for exclamation marks. I knew I liked you.
