Driving by the USS Intrepid at the Pier. The bus tour did not go to Wall Street Those taking the tour are given the opportunity every afternoon to go to places not covered on the bus tour.

Hotel located walking distance from Broadway and Times Square. Many restaurants are close the hotel too – food hall in the back of hotel. You can eat in the hotel, but prices are higher than elsewhere. Hotel is comfortable. Because the city operates 24hrs it can be noisy. If you don’t want to walk, taxis and Uber cars everywhere taxis and uber(don’t have to call) are readily available.
Travel from airport to hotel was not added into tour price. Travel agent reserved the car before we departed. Our tour guide was not available on the last day due to Covid. One of the ports helped find the car which took us to airport
OBSERVATION that should be considered in connection with health and planning. If you have any breathing problems fumes from vehicles and underground trains can make walking amongst numerous crowds difficult. Fumes come up through grills on the ground. I had to use an inhaler more times than usual. Some places, one of the restaurants we went to do not have elevators or moving stairs.
Day 1 and Day 5 are travel days, so tour with guide did not start until Day 2. If you elect to travel to New York the day before Day 1 you will have opportunity to see other places not on the tour (seeing another Broadway show) Likewise if you elect to travel on Day 1 you can save the cost of one more night at the hotel and travel to arrive on Day 1.
