NYC August 2024

New York City Senior Travel Session

August 2024


Uber to & from the airport $58 & $100

Hotel: Hotel Beacon

What I love about the Hotel Beacon is it’s close to Central Park, has a grocery store across the street, a Starbucks across the street, & it is only a block or maybe two from the Subway station. The kitchenette is so nice for leftover food & snacks.

VRBO option

Subway is $2.75 per person per ride. We spent roughly $100-$120 using it, but we always used it.

NYC SUbway

$2.75 per ride

MetroCard for 7 day unlimited is $33

Central Park Pedicab – cost around $120 with tip

Real Tours of NYC – great way to explore the city with a tour guide – Private tour $500 for 6 hours – I would recommend asking about pricing for 3-4 hours

NYC Broadway Musicals

Places to see:

Times Square

Central Park



Little Italy



Wall Street

911 Memorial

Grand Central Station

MET museum
