Times Square is the 'heartbeat' of NYC

It is possible to actually ‘Do NYC on $550 a day for Two’ and hit the highlights. As a native New Yorker (lived there for over 30 years) who has been a desert dweller in the Land of Arizona since 1974, I need a NYC fix every once in a while. From time to time, I need to reenter my New York ‘state of mind’. This year was no exception. So, I set out to plan five days and four nights (with my husband) in the city of my birth. With years of experience and many travel miles under my belt, I know that with careful planning all things are possible.

Wanting to be close to Central Park, Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall, Broadway and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, I have found that a hotel location near 7th Avenue and 55th Street works best for me. From there I can walk to all of the mentioned destinations. This time I decided to include a meal at restaurants of my three favorite TV chefs, in addition to one of our standby favorites.

NYC never disappoints; our trip was awesome. My advanced planning worked to our satisfaction.
