Hi

My Wife and I are visting New York in September and will be staying in the Broadway area. We only have 4 days to see as much as possible and want to go to Lower Mahatten, Staten Island ferry Central Park etc is theNEw York Hopper bus a good option or are other alternatives avaiable we do not mind walking resonable distances but it is hard to get an idea of how far things are.

Any help much appreciated

You will have to use subway at some point of your visit. Unlimited ride 7-day MetroCard is $24.

Grey Line double-decker tour bus:

These are good so you can see the major sites and get a handle on the locations of certain things. You can take the NYC subway or buses after to go back to places you'd like to explore further.

Calculating walking distance: 20 blocks generally equals 1 mile.
