The day before the consult and the day between the consult and the procedure we went into Manhattan – you are on the doorstep of this remarkable city you have to make the most of it and with the air conditioned train leaving right outside the hotel there is really no excuse.
There was a heat wave when we visited (not great for someone with ms) so we opted for more sedentary tourism options such as a bus tour, the circle line boat tour, up the Rockefeller Centre and to the 9/11 memorial, all hard going but you need to make the most of the opportunity and who knows when we might ever travel again. If you do the Rockefeller Centre or Empire State be warned, you are still looking at anywhere between 45m – 120m waiting and queuing times before you actually get up to enjoy the view. Also a visit to Bryant Park is a must – it’s a relatively small park right behind the amazing NY Library, between 5th & 6th Avenue and just a few mins walk from the train if you get off at 42nd street. It is an amazing place to relax, watch and experience NY.
