  • During holiday time I'd take them to see the tree at Rockefeller Center, maybe skating, FAO Swartz...maybe a holiday show. They are still pretty little, so 12 hours of anything would be too much =)

  • oops, Schwartz, =)

  • I LOVE the Central Park zoo. It's really something to see. It's way too crowded to see the major sights (Empire State Building, statue of liberty). I would just walk through Times square and then go to the zoo. Go see the tree if it's not too crowded.

  • OP Here- Okay, I should have specified that we are NOT going during the holiday season, we will be going late winter.

  • I've never been there so I wouldn't even know where to begin!
    I know that I'm not a 'typical' tourist so I would want to see the interesting things off the beaten path - the 'real' NY. :)
