Iíd like some advice from NYC savvy Micechatters, please.
Iím going to New York City at the end of this month for a business meeting. Iíll have all day Sunday free to explore. Iíve been to NYC once before in the late 80ís with a friend. We did the Statue of Liberty, a Broadway play, Times Square, took a Grey line tour that went from Battery Park to Harlem, saw Central Park, went to the Museum of Natural History and did some shopping.
So this time with my free day, Iím thinking about taking the subway to Coney Island. My question isÖ.is Coney Island worth a day trip? I thought I might go to the Aquarium also while I was there since they look like they are right next to each other on the map.
Iíd probably be going by myself since my co-workers are more interested in shopping and will probably want to stay in Manhattan.
Iím really interested in seeing whatís around Manhattan and not just whatís in the city.
So hereís my question: Is Coney Island a worthwhile visit? Should I be concerned about going there by myself, translated Ė is it safe? Is the Aquarium a neat place to go?
Thanks in advance!
