Day 7: Tips for Visiting The Big Apple, New York City for the first time

On day seven, we moved from the upper west side to downtown near Times Square. We used priceline to get an exceptional deal on The Crowne Plaza hotel. The staff was friendly, and the hotel was upscale. We would spend the last couple of nights here before returning home. After checking in, we went to TKTS to see if we could get tickets for the Rock of Ages show that afternoon. They sold out quickly, so we walked down to the theatre and got a better deal! I would advise to always check the theatre in person if possible first, so you know what price you have to beat to get a deal. We got tickets for the evening show, and it was very entertaining.
After the show, we spent some time in Times Square taking pictures at night and getting ourselves up on the big screen. Every once in a while, they show a crowd shot on the jumbotron. If you're lucky and find the right spot, you can be on a very large screen in Times Square!



We also visited the Guitar Center nearby for some window shopping.
