I know most people say that you really need atleast a few days to see New York City, but since we only had 1 day, we decided that the top 3 places we wanted to see were the Metropolitan Museum, the American Museum of Natural History, and Times Square.
So we hopped the train to Grand Central Station, Walked the 40 blocks in the pouring rain from the train station to the Met and spent awhile there, Then we walked across central park (in the pouring rain) over to the Natural History Museum and since it closed in 1 and 1/2 hours, we got free admission! So we did that museum in record time and hopped the subway over to Times Square!
We were all drenched, but mom was soaked! Anyway, I posted the pictures on Flickr!
