|Frank, Gene and Jules did, Can they?|
Do you think they can do it in just one day?
On Sunday Morning we will be at World Trade Center site. Since we are staying at the Millennium, you should get a look right into the WTC pit. You can see 7 World Trade which is the only building which is now finished. If your hotel room overlooks the site, you should also be able to get a look at the new buildings still under construction as well as the 9-11 memorial which is scheduled to open in about a week.
Now leave the WTC site and head north up Church Street to Chambers. You want to take the 1 or 2 subway Uptown to 79th Street. This is the Upper East Side
You wanted to get bagels I would suggest you go to Zabars. This is on Broadway around 80th. Again for the movie connection it was in the movie You’ve Got Mail. If you want to get bagels and Lox this is your place. They have a lot of other stuff too, although I am not sure if they have any seating.

You can to this way.....

You may want to head South on Fifth Avenue. This is where the Upper East Side, where all of the wealthiest people in NYC live. Zabars was on the Upper West side. You will see a lot of big apartment houses. As you keep going South on fifth you will see a lot of the famous stores in NYC. FAO Schwartz, the Apple Store, Bergdorf Goodmans. If you keep going you can go all the way down to the New York Public Library which is also pretty famous. Take a left onto 42nd street to go to Times Square.
Or This way, both end at Times Square
Instead of going down fifth you can walk through the park. As you are crossing try to sort of make your way Southward. You should pass central Park Lake which is pretty famous.
At this point it may be getting a little late. If it is you can find the NQR train at 42nd and Broadway and take it back down to the Millenium to get ready. If Not Take the NQR one stop to 34th St and switch to the ACE.
From the Arch Head directly South and you will find yourself on Thompson Street, which is a very famous Village Street. At this point I would start walking mostly South and little bit East, As you head south you will go through both the village and then into Soho. South of Houston. This is a commercial area with some pretty nice stores.
If you keep going you will hit Canal Street, the counterfeit goods capitol of the world. If you hit Canal start going East, if you hit Broadway, Start going South. At Canal and Broadway You will hit the NQ again. Get on the train and head downtown back to Fulton Street. WTC. You are back at the Millennium
On your walk to the wedding you can walk to the wedding and still see more stuff. Alternatively if you are running late you can always try to walk home from the reception and see it then.
The walk from the Millenium to the reception is about twenty minutes. Leave the hotel and walk south on Broadway. This is the canyon of heroes where they have held like a bazillion ticker tape parades. The parades arent as frequent any more, but you can see them commemorated in the bronze placques on the sidewalks as you head farther downtown.
You will pass Trinity Church on the right. This is a colonial era church and is famous from the National Treasure movies.
You are going to pass Wall Street. I don't know if you have time but the NYSE is at the corner of Broad and Wall
A little farther down you will pass Bowling Green which is where the Bull Statue is located.
That’s about it. I tried to hit some of the major areas. I think depending on how fast you go, this will take you about 6-10 hours. At any time if you get rushed you can always hop in a cab and head back to the hotel. It should only take about ten minutes to get here.
