I'm currently planning my NYC trip that's coming up. Will be in the city from Nov 4-12 (well 5-6 I'll be taking a train out to DC) so technically Nov 4 whole day, 6 evening and 7-11 as I fly out morning of 12. I know 7th happens to be NYC Marathon (did not know that when I booked my trip lol) and 11th is Veteran's Day Holiday. I'll be posting an itinerary check later.
I love visiting Gardens and Parks. Central Park is a must revisit for me (went early summer of 2012). I'm trying to fit both of the Gardens but due to time constraints and distance and timed entry that is already reserved, I think I can only swing one of them.
I think I can plan Brooklyn one after my morning of 9/11 Museum and Memorial and One World Observatory. This would be Sunday of the Marathon. Will this be doable?
Other option would be trying to fit NY Botanical in the morning before I need to go back to TS for a 2p showing. I guess I could do both with what I just said BUT there are too many places I want to see/do that maybe just one will do and do other things. This would be the 9th.
Another option would have me move around some stuff and I can do any of the Parks/Garden on the 11th Veteran's day BUT worried how crowd level would be. I know there's timed entry and stuff right now but things change later.
Which Garden would you choose to go out of the way? Or which one is better, etc.
