|Subject: Re: Re: New York City in August|
This is a perfect topic for my daughter and me. I am from Long Island, now living in California. My 16 year old daughter and I are doing an East Coast College tour, visit family on Long Island, along with attending a family reunion in NC and visiting our old neighborhood in Northern Virginia.
She does not remember our life before California and wants to be a tourist as much as possible. I left NY at age 22 and need help to decide what to do so I do not add any more exhaustion than my schedule will already cause.
I plan to take the train in from Islip to Penn Station on Monday August 8th....early!! We will spend Monday night. We are not poor, but I do need to watch the money. I need a good place to stay for the one night, in a good central location.
My must do/see items are the tenement museum, http://www.tenement.org/Virtual_Tour/index_virtual.html the NYC Municipal archives and 29 Ave C. My hobby is genealogy, thus those items.
My daughter is not sure what she wants to do/see besides ground zero and the stock exchange and central park.
I know that is not much time but any ideas are appreciated....
Thanks is advance, Gail Jorgensen Southern California
