we begin and end a 26-day romp through French wineries with deliberately long layovers at JFK airport.
The first layover in NYC is just long enough to sneak out for a late lunch near JFK. This is a key meal, jet-lagwise, because it will be dinner time in France and want to start getting on that schedule.
The return layover gives us over 24hrs in Manhattan. We have not yet booked a hotel so could be anywhere.
Ok, denizens of New York. Those are your parameters. Could be anywhere, anything, just please no French food.
