Roberta, thank you, thank you, thank you for your concern and all of your advice. What i meant was it won't be just my little 5'2" self walking home and I will be calling this apartment owner prior to our arrival to get her take on things. I have read The Gift of Fear several times and will be on watch!
Yes, I have to go to the Guggenheim - it has over 2 million works of art!!! I'll check out the website, as Tsar suggested. By my pass is good for the 5th!!
As for $$$ - that's why I got the NYC passes - they allow you to travel Manhattan for three days (hop on and hop off at 50 stops) and includes entry to 70 places... so everywhere we want to go is free, and we can bypass any lineups. I
just have to get a 7-day metro card for us for after 6 pm and to and from Brooklyn.
