So many neighborhoods; Chinatown shop cheap and eat Asian Food, Little Italy for coffee and ice cream, Soho to shop, Union Square or Bryant Park just because!!! Central Park, Rockefeller center! Walk around! Times Square and its glooming adds and shows. The Hudson River, the Financial Districk and the Ferry to Staten Island to check the Statue of Liberty for free! A must! Chelsea for Art, Brooklyn for more alternative-hipster plans, dance in the Meat Packing District, Explore the Zoo at the Bronx or check out Columbia University or some museums in Harlem. Drinks in the Lower East side of the West Village! I LOVE NYC! Any part has something you need to see! By metro, walk, or city bikes!
Go to Times Square! There are lots of Broadway shows, Classic Lion King, Wicked are still there, Rocky is new and pretty hot! or go off broadway to the New World Stages ( 340 w 50th st, NY 10019 ), to see new age theater and enjoy some wine and music at the piano bar.
The Financial District!
Dance and Fun:
Gaslight (Meatpacking district)
Empire Hotel (hot spot)
Other around 29th y 12th.
The Fat Cat (Dive Bar)
Live music at Rockwood Music Hall in LES
Or go to the Hotel across the Broohlyn Brewery for the views or to the Brewery! Go to Bedford Metro stop and explore the Greenpoint area.
NYC! where is the best? Grimaldi’s is the most known or anywhere!
There is a new crave in NYC! and those are the “Cronuts”, a croissant-doughnut pastry invented and trademarked by Dominique Ansel Bakery. People stand in lines for hours, so they do just to use the ATM cupcake machine of “Spinkles”.
It is much more complicated to get one of those delicatessens than Harold and Kumar had in search of a Burger from the White Castle.
Besides the JFK or Newport airport! Check out the Grand Central train station!
NYC is an amazing city but at night! don’t be surprise if you find piles of trash! they will be gone by sunrise!
Education is huge! Columbia University, NYU…among others! great city to explore yourself and get into the NY speed! Non Stop activity!
Architecture! Buildings! EVERYWHERE you can find NICE ROOFTOPS! Close to the Hudson River is Hells Kitchen and the High line! They made a better use of old train track trails and did a nice walk! very architectural! and you must grab a drink and watch the sunset!

Preserve 24: drinks
Ten Degrees: String cocktails and happy hour
Aphotheke: speakeasy that from the outside seems like a chinese restaurant but inside in a lab of drinks. “Mixology” cocktails depending on your mood, just tell the bartender how you feel and he will customize your drink.
PDT: Outside looks like a hot dog place, and they do serve hotdogs, but go inside the phone booth and you will discover a lounge. Call to rsvp at 3pm or you won’t get in most of the times.
Museums! Can’t get enough of them, the metropolitan, the MOMA, and the Natural History Museum are the Best!
