Opt to bring a lightweight stroller like an umbrella stroller. Our double stroller is very useful but in the city when traveling mostly by train it was awkward to deal with and a nuisance to carry up all the stairs. Using a sling for the baby helped give me an extra hand when I needed it to keep a strong hold of my toddler.
You can make as many plans as you want, but understand that in a city this big, things can change very quickly and there are many things left up to chance that you can't plan for or expect. Be flexible and remember to enjoy your surroundings and the adventure.
