Definitely stay in NYC and take advantage of all the city has to offer.

Museum of TV and Radio is neat: http://www.mtr.org
and a must see is the Museum of Natural History: http://www.amnh.org
I happen to like the Museum of the City of New York, http://www.mcny.org

Of course if they are into art, there's plenty of places, such as the Museum of Modern Art http://www.moma.org, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, http://www.metmuseum.org, the Guggenheim, http://www.guggenheim.org and plenty more.

Take them to Soho (means "South of Houston") and the East Village too. Central Park is always worth the trip http://www.centralparknyc.org. I would also have them see Grand Central Station - its unlike any other train station in the world: http://www.grandcentralterminal.com. They have very fantastic tours of the station.

For 9 and 13 year olds, they would probably like to see the Apple store (there's one on 59th and 5th Ave and one on Prince St in Soho). They can pick up the latest iPod stuff for about half of what you would pay in the UK. And while the kids are at the Apple store, the wife can shop at great stores nearby. With the dollar in the crapper, you'll get great deals here.

Let me know if this helps.


Once again I thank you all for your help... :clap:
It'll be great to see the new arena. The first fan to spot us gets free beer! (Not saying which games we're going to!) :whistling:

How old are your kids?


They're 9 & 13 years old, although the teenager thinks she's in her 20's!

Are you just coming over for the game or are you planning other activities or visiting other cities?

We're coming over for the Devils' games but staying a week. Last time we did the Empire State, Statue of Liberty etc. & had a great time.
I'm sure there's plenty to keep us entertained in between games but welcome any suggestions...

Thanks Chaps, great advice as usual. Really looking forward to seeing the new place. Last season was amazing although my 8 year old daughter picked up some 'interesting' chants at the Rangers game!!! :doh1:
