I just finished booking my hotel for a family vacation in New York City. I'm embarrassed (sp?) to say it's my first visit especially since I lived within 4 hours of NYC for at least 25 years of my life. Better late than never. I'm looking for input on places you especially enjoy. We are staying upper west side and will spend time at the Natural History Museum, Guggenheim Museum and The Met. Statue of Liberty tour is booked... It doesn't have to be an attraction, just please share places you like to eat or areas of Central Park that you enjoy etc. Gardens?
