But we're also thinking of New York City because we'll be back there together on November 2nd for four nights!
We haven't done anything in the way of planning yet. But there is so much to see and do there that I guarantee we won't have a problem staying busy the whole time we're there. And then, we have another three night stopover in March when we return from Africa.
When we were there in 2000, we saw all of the main sights that we wanted to. Here's a write up I did three years ago today...
We visited the World Trade Center, Grand Central Station, the Staten Island Ferry, the New York Stock Exchange, the United Nations building, Coney Island. That kind of stuff. So this time, we're looking for some different and quirky things to see and do.

We'll do one day in lower Manhatten, but that will probably be it. We'd like to visit some areas outside the central core. Maybe we'll sign up for some walking tours. We'd like to do one of Harlem. Hopefully we'll be able to find a couchsurfer in one of the boroughs who will be able to show us around.
Our flight actually lands in Newark, New Jersey. I'll bet there are some things to see and do in Newark that often get overlooked because everybody goes to Manhatten.
Anybody has any suggestions, (or want to offer us a place to stay in the area!) we're all ears.
