We did a whirlwind tour of Manhattan while we were here. An all-day pass on the subway costs only $8.50, so we hopped on and off all day, and walked everywhere in between. We hit Times Square, Chinatown, Little Italy (with waiters such as this one below practically pulling you in off of the street for a delicious yet inexpensive lunch), Wall Street and the financial district, South Street Seaport, Grand Central Station (beautiful, with a terrific open market inside), the Public Library, and Bryant Park. We ended the day with a show at the Stand-Up Comedy Club only a few blocks from the boat basin. We were tired but happy when we got back to the boat, which is all anyone can ask for.
