The Big Apple – Dissected by Dave

By Dave Caplan

Let’s start in Midtown with two great ideas that will excite the entire family.

Take our All Day Access Pass and get off at Pier 79 and pickup discount tickets at our sales window for the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. Take a 5 minute walk up to the Intrepid.

The Intrepid is a retired Aircraft Carrier that survived 5 Kamikaze attacks in World War II. While on board marvel at the array of Military aircraft, board the Growler a nuclear Submarine and stand in awe in front of the Space Shuttle Enterprise.

Grab the kids and walk down 42nd St to Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum. Mom and Dad can check out the figures of Brad Pitt and Marilyn Monroe while the kids enjoy the likes of The Hulk, Iron Man and Spiderman.

Time to head back to Pier 79, get back on the New York Water Taxi and get off at our Dumbo stop in Brooklyn. Walk under the Brooklyn Bridge and you will find Jane’s Carousel which first thrilled children in Youngstown, Ohio in 1922. After a thirty year renovation it now thrills children in a beautiful clear building right next to the bridge. The carousel is open from 11:00AM to 6:00PM Thursdays to Sundays until May 5th, for only two dollars a ride. Hard to find a bottle of water at that price!

The answer to last week’s trivia question is Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx. More than three times the size of Central Park. Last week’s mystery photo was Grand Central.

This week’s trivia question- What is the second most spoken language in New York City?
