    Here's a list of my favorite things to do in the city:

    Walk west across the Brooklyn Brdge starting in Brooklyn over to Manhattan. In summer, the view is awesome. Start with a pizza in Brooklyn at Grimaldi's- quite possibly one of the best NY pizzerias.
    Check out MOMA and the Guggenheim and head to the Metropilitan rooftop for a spectacular view of central park.
    Times Square after midnight offers a very surreal experience you just can't get in the day time! :-) almost 12 years ago

    I've got a few suggestions:

    Check out the Apple Store on 5th Avenue right near central park.. you won't find any different products but it's an amazing location and they stay open late with DJs on the weekends.

    Take a harbour cruise at night - they take you out past Staten island, then under many of the brides including the Brooklyn bridge, and you get an amazing view of the NYC skyline.

    Walk through central park - there's heaps of things to see here, and it's a good way of getting "out" of Manhattan and chilling out!

    Go up the Empire State Building - the view is amazing on a summer's day. It gives you a great perspective of just how big Manhattan really is. There's often a long wait but you can pay someone a bit extra (around 30 USD) for an 'express ride' which skips the queue and gets you to the top sooner.

    I think once you master the subway (which is really easy) then you can explore everywhere! Manhattan is a place that is fun to get lost in, because there's always something around every corner! almost 12 years ago

    You have to do the Empire State Building, Times square and Broadway! If you want to go out and see the statue of liberty you have to book your tickets on the internet before hand. almost 12 years ago

    I prefer Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center to the Empire State Building. Much nicer experience IMO. Get out of midtown and into some neighborhoods, walk around, shop, have coffee. There's an awesome bar in Grand Central Terminal (another must-see) called The Campbell Apartment. Great retro cocktails and lovely space. Eat dim sum in Chinatown. Have a great time! over 9 years ago
