This is quite the open-ended question!
But, since you asked, I have little to go on, because I don't know what you would be in the mood for, what your budget is, or exactly where you will be staying in New York (I presume that you mean New York City)
Pizza: Try Lombardis (alleged to be the first pizzeria in NYC). On Spring St. at Mott St, in the neighborhood called "Nolilta" (North of Little Italy).
But save room for dessert at Rice to Riches, around the corner. Best rice pudding you will ever have, and you get to keep the container (trust me on this one)
Bagel sandwich: My personal pick is Ess-A-Bagel (ask your Yiddish-speaking friends). Nothing like whitefish salad on a garlic bagel on a Sunday morning after working out. 1st Ave and 21st St.
If you like, try Eataly, at Madison Square. A celebration of all things Italian, including the food.
Places to go:
The 911 Memorial - just because.
Herald Square, and the walk from there, north, to Times Square - look, but avoid the tourist trap souvenir shops and restaurants.
And I might send you to a walking tour of the area in and around Grand Central Station.
Have a great trip, whatever you do, and wherever you go. about 5 years ago
To see-I would do the standard tourist thing-see the World Trade Center, Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, etc
To eat, you can either (A) do the standard tourist thing, and go to the Carnegie Deli, etc, or (B) and what I prefer, go to ethnic neighborhoods, like Jackson Heights, Queens for some authentic Indian Food (both less touristy, less expensive and better then Manhattan), or Brighton Beach Brooklyn for Russian Food. You can take the subway to both places. over 4 years ago
