    Any things that I shouldn't miss in New York City?

    Indeed NYC is best explored by walking around the different neighborhoods. Some ideas: +Walk the Brooklyn Bridge +Top of the Empire State Building +Walk through Central Park (always entertainment going on) Horse and buggy ride is overpriced +Pier 17 for street entertainment, shopping, bars and great views +Williamsburg Brooklyn (Bedford Ave) for food, bars and artists +Times Square +Ride a bike down the West Side bike path for scenic views and excellent parks near Battery Park +Museum of Modern Art or American Museum of Natural History +Gray Line Double Decker Bus tours (they may be cheesy, but many are informative and will take you all the way up to Harlem) +Best view of the city's sklyline. Take a ferry or Path train to Hoboken and visit Pier A for a spectacular view. If you enjoy bars there are about 50 of them along one strip in Hoboken. A W Hotel also just opened on the waterfront also. +Canal street for flea market type shopping -Don't waste your money on Italian dinning in Little Italy (Food is overpriced and for tourists) +Bryant Park for lunch +St. Patrick's Cathedral and while there Rockefeller Center +Grand Central Station +Stroll Soho +Statue of Liberty (Advised this is an all day affair) +Columbus Circle +Washington Square +Meat Packing District (posh dinning and nightlife) over 11 years ago

    Best restaurant suggestions in New York?

    If you are going to be here during nice weather don't pass up brunch at The Boat House in Central Park. The view of the row boats on the lake and the open air dinning is excellent. over 11 years ago

    Good restaurants/bars in New York?

    If its a beautiful day like it will be this weekend, get to The BoatHouse in Central Park for a spectacular view while enjoying brunch. You might have to wait, so get there early. It is expensive. almost 12 years ago
