The Ultimate Checklist to HOME ALONE 2: Lost in New York

  • Land in NYC at LaGuardia Airport. See your first glance at New York City

  • Yellow cab it into the city via the 59th Street Queensboro Bridge 

  • First things first, check into The Plaza Hotel (768 5th Avenue) It\'s truly magical during the holidays. Did you know The Plaza also has a HOME ALONE experience BTW Kevin stayed in room 411

  • First stop visit Radio City Music Hall (1260 6th Avenue) This is home to the Radio City Rockettes, which is one of the most famous Christmas shows in the city. Grab tickets to the show while you are here

  • Grab breakfast at Empire Diner in the Meatpacking District before you start your day (210 10th Avenue) This is also a cool neighborhood to explore and definitely walk The High Line. You can also grab a coffee at Intelligentsia Coffee (a Chicago favorite) at The High Line Hotel (180 10th Avenue)

  • Visit Mott Street in Chinatown (exact movie location is 32 Mott Street) which is now closed but you can still take a photo here. While you are in Chinatown shop hugely discounted accessories and more and enjoy some Chinese food. May I suggest the Golden Unicorn (18 E Broadway)

  • See the Statue of Liberty from Battery Park. You can also dine at Merchants River House and shop at Brookfield Place

  • Kevin views the entire city from World Trade Center but obviously the towers are no longer there. Instead visit the One World Trade Center. You can still see a gorgeous view from the top and also visit the 9/11 Museum, or even enjoy a guided tour The park and memorial is also a beautiful place to see. 

  • Go ice skating at Wollman Rink in Central Park (830 5th Avenue)

  • Also, Kevin does find himself a few times in Central Park. So, if you have never been it\'s a NYC must! Take a few photos at Bethesda Terrace

  • Duncan’s Toy Chest which most of you know is really FAO Schwarz. One of the most famous toy stores in the world. Sadly they closed their doors in 2015 however FAO Schwarz had just recently opened a new location (30 Rockefeller Plaza)

  • Kevin runs down 5th Avenue a few times to escape Harry and Marv. You can\'t go to NYC without seeing all the Christmas lights along 5th Avenue. It\'s also the perfect place to do some holiday shopping

  • Kevin visit Carnegie Hall with The Pigeon Lady. See a show at famous Carnegie Hall (881 7th Avenue)

  • Rob McAllister’s House is located at 51 W 95th Street. The real house looks a little different but you can go take a photo if you are a true fan

  • Kevin\'s mom looks for him as soon as she arrives in New York. One of her first stops isTimes Square. You can\'t go to NYC for the first time without a trip to Times Square

  • What\'s Christmas in New York City without seeing the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center (45 Rockefeller Plaza) You can also shop, go ice staking and visit the Bryant Park Holiday Village a few blocks away

  • For Chicago Lovers

  • Did you know that the outside Duncan’s Toy Chest was actually filmed at the Rookery Building (209 S LaSalle Street) in Chicago and the inside was filmed at Uptown Theater (4816 North Broadway) 

  • The HOME ALONE house is located Winnetka (671 Lincoln Avenue)

  • The suite at the end of the move is actually not in The Plaza it\'s actually in Chicago Hilton and Towers (720 South Michigan Avenue)
