Horse Carriages at Central Park

With my objective of NYC on $550 a day for two, I selected the Wellington Hotel at 7th Ave and 55th St. as just about every subway line is within one to three blocks. I requested a quiet room and was given one on the 20th floor. The hotel is popular with European groups, so you can practice your foreign language skills. The staff is friendly and attentive. Computer use is available for a modest fee. The hotel is close to Central Park.

We were in NYC for five days and four nights at the end of June. The tempo was good and we were able to rest for an hour in our room before the evening performances. Before departure, I searched the Internet and secured tickets to: American Ballet (Coppelia) at the MET Opera House at Lincoln Center, Jersey Boys on Broadway, Ravi Coltrane at Birdland, Cirque du Soleil at Radio City Music Hall, and the Shearwater Schooner boat ride on the Hudson River.
