Long weekend in New York City

A February 2006 trip to New York by CUL8R

Quote: Three tickets on JetBlue from San Diego to New York: $830 Three nights at the Waldorf Astoria: $789 Three tickets to see "Jersey Boys" on Broadway: $333 Taking a nibble out of the Big Apple: priceless
Quote:
The Waldorf is elegant, timeless, and steeped in history. It's also centrally located, and within walking distance of Rockefeller Center, Time Square, Central Park, and the theatre district.

Jekyll and Hyde Club

Restaurant | "Jekyll & Hyde Club"

Quote:
For something unusual and bizarre, have lunch at Jekyll & Hyde’s. You aren’t going for the quality of the food. You’re going for the whole experience. The four-story building is filled with artifacts and oddities, many of which seem to have a life of their own. This is a very busy place and seating is on a first come, first serve basis.

Quote:
The food was fantastic and the view of the ice rink was entertaining. The pumpkin risotto was creamy and satisfying. The pork tenderloin was tender and juicy.

August Wilson Theatre

Attraction | "Jersey Boys"

Quote:
This is the amazing story about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. The music is great. Every song brought back loads of memories. We took our 11-year-old son, who also enjoyed it. I wouldn't recommend taking anyone younger, as there is some colorful language.

Rockefeller Center Ice Skating Rink

Attraction

Quote:
Travel 70 stories high to see unobstructed, 360 degree, views of New York City. Buy a map and you'll be able to spot all the famous landmarks. We went at night and the lights were spectacular. The last elevator leaves at 11pm.

Story/Tip

Quote:
Because my husband and I often travel with our now 11-year-old son, we always try to make the adventure, fun and interesting for all of us. This short visit to New York was no exception. It has something for all of us. We flew my new favorite airline JetBlue, from San Diego to JFK. We stayed at my new favorite hotel, the Waldorf Astoria. We kept busy from the moment we arrived, to the moment we departed. Spend the day in Rockefeller Center. Visit the NBC Experience Store for t-shirts, and mugs of your favorite shows such as The Apprentice, Fear Factor or Friends.
