It was ok mainly, the Brooklyn bridge day was the hottest as there was no shade, but it wasn't as humid as Florida. It was mostly very pleasant

What a fab time in Central Park, you saw loads ! That map they hand out is rubbish though, and they need more signs . Very brave being on the bikes but looks a lot of fun.
Those PotBellysandwiches look really tasty !
Stunning views from ToTR, so pleased you got up there, it's incredible isn't it. And the lift ... It's brilliant, I have one of those shots too trying to capture the flashing light !

Eesh you guys must have aching legs by the end of today.

Aww I think you did a bike tour didn't you? It was nice as we could take it easy and stop when we needed to

It was lovely, the bike ride was one of my favourite things I thought I'd ache but didn't actually! And the seats must have been quite padded too
TOTR was great but such a rubbish photo! Took me ages to work out what it was

Enjoying reading your trip report, I've never read one for NY before. My children are 16 and 14 and always worried about spending that amount on a few days holiday, particularly if they got too tired/too hot! Think they're now at a good age to seriously consider it if the price is right. Like the sound of hotel you chose as would need three beds

The hotel was perfect for us, I would definitely recommend it
Thank you for reading

What a fabulous day in Central Park. You saw so much. It looks like you had so much fun on the bikes, I wish we had just rented bikes and not done a tour, the bike tour was too fast for me and I felt we missed a lot. It was nice to go back in and have an wander to see more and eat your lunch as well.

Lovely pics from TOTR. I was very frustrated when we went because like you we deliberately chose our time well, but there were already so many people there camped out probably for hours. It was 3 deep and we couldn't get anywhere near the edges
