New York Trip August 21st – 25th for 5 Days & 4 Nights

This trip includes: Transportation to and from New York, 4 nights stay at the Hotel Edison, Baggage handling from the curb to your room and from your room back to the curb, dinner Monday evening, 4 breakfasts, a 7 day unlimited use pass to the subway and bus system, the Ferry from Battery Park to Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island then back to Battery Park, entrance into the 9/11 Museum and One World Observatory. Cost of the trip is $1,099.00 based on Double Occupancy. I need confirmation from those who are going to travel with us ASAP. Deadline is July 15. I have to commit to the Hotel rooms by that date and begin to acquire tickets.

So here’s the Itinerary. Monday 08/21/2017. Board our coach at 6:45 AM. Depart 7 AM from Humenik’s (Park on the CVS side) for NYC. Arrive in NYC about 4:30 PM. Check in, freshen up, get dinner and you are on your own for the evening. I suggest taking a walk over to Time Square, which is only 300 feet away, or going to the Empire State Building, open until 2 AM! There are so many sites to see and places to visit within walking distance of the hotel.

Tuesday Day 2: If we can get tickets for “Live” with Kelly Rippa we have to be at the theater by about 7 to 7:45 AM for entrance into the show. After “Live” our bus will take us down to Battery Park to board the Ferry to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Be assured this will take up most of your day. Once at the Statue of Liberty there is a restaurant where you can get lunch. The Statue of Liberty exhibit, which opened in July 1986 is located on the second floor in the pedestal of the Statue, traces the history and symbolism of the Statue of Liberty through museum objects, photographs, prints, videos and oral histories. In addition to historical artifacts and descriptive text, full-scale replicas of the Statue’s face and foot are also on display. Once you are ready, you can leave on the Ferry to go over to Ellis Island. There you can visit the Family History Center and research your families journey to the U.S. Then you can go through the Immigration Experience Museum. The French Renaissance Revival structure tells the moving tales of the 12 million immigrants who entered America through the golden door of Ellis Island. Today, the descendants of those immigrants account for almost half of the American people. In addition, the newly completed Peopling of America Center bookends the Ellis Island era by chronicling immigration to America before the processing station opened in 1892 and after it closed in 1954, right up to the present. After you are done there you can head back to the mainland to see and do what you would like as well as get yourself some dinner.

Wednesday Day 3: We board our coach by 9 AM (Subject to change) for transport to Ground Zero. We will enter the 9/11 Museum at our assigned time which will determine our departure to One World Trade Center (within walking distance of 9/11 museum). The historical exhibition has three parts: the Day of 9/11, Before 9/11 and After 9/11. It tells the story of what happened on 9/11, including the events at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the story of Flight 93. The exhibition explores the background leading up to the events and examines there aftermath and continuing implications. Once you are done there, you can walk over to One World Observatory at your leisure. One World Observatory is at the top of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere on the 100th, 101st and 102nd floors of One World Trade Center. It offers views of New York City’s iconic sights, surrounding waters and skyline. The guest experience goes beyond the amazing view as Guests can explore the levels of the Observatory filled with innovation, inspiration and an incredible elevator ride to the top. After, everyone will meet at a pre-set place and time to re-board our coach back to the Edison Hotel.
