Carmine's Restaurant Highly Recommended! The New York Pass Saved Us Money New York City Night Downtown Bus Tour Hot Dog from a Vendor - A New York City Tradition

We arrived for a 3 day trip and picked up our New York Pass and Hop on/Hop off bus passes first thing. We feel the passes were a wonderful help to us and saved us money. We hit the streets each day around 8:30am and did not return to our hotel until midnight or so.

We saw Empire State Bldg, Top of the Rock, Statue of Liberty, did a night tour of NY/Brooklyn,saw a Broadway show, cruise around the lower half of NYC, visited Museum of Natural History, Ground Zero, Central Park, did the NY custom of eating a hotdog from a vendor, had dinner at Carmine's which was a wonderful experience and we highly recommend everyone to go.

We shopped at Macy's and China Town. We found people mostly friendly and helpful and found our NYC trip awesome.

Things to skip..

Skyride at Empire State Bldg was terrible, picture was out of focus, the project kept breaking down and the film was about 10 minutes long...

We ate at Planet Hollywood because we had a coupon from NYPass and we were there but the food was mediocore at best and over priced, mandatory tip charge and we waited longer for the bill than we did for the food. The experience at the street vendor eating our sausages was much better than Planet Hollywood!

Thanks again NYC for a fabulous time.
