Ouch. That’s a rough one. Who is shooting down your ideas – your aunt/grandmother or your parents? Since you said your parents come into the city a lot and enjoy themselves, do they have any suggestions if yours keep getting nixed?

I’m trying to think of stuff but those are some pretty rough pre-requisites for NYC! Sorry you’re dealing with this!

It annoys me to no end when older people that HAVE the money say things are too expensive. I understand that yes, outside of NYC and other major cities you can get a nice dinner for much much cheaper, but you’re going to NYC. You need to deal with the fact that things are just more expensive. Argh. I’m getting annoyed for you!

What have you done in previous years? You said this is an annual thing, right? Can you recycle?

When are they coming? What about the Bryant Park Craft Fair? That’s always a hit when my mom comes to visit and there’s some seating too, at the cafe there… I’m not sure when it starts tho, it might be the day after Thanksgiving…

i work near rock center and i think that if you head a few ave’s over to 9th avenue there’s a lot more options foodwise and it’s a lot less touristy and hectic.  for ‘american’ food, maybe eatery is a good option (53rd and 9th).  or there’s always john’s pizza on 44th (or is it 45th?) and 8th.  it’s realllly yummy pizza…and almost everyone loves pizza, right?  it’s kind of a tourist spot though.  it’s a restaurant, not just a pizza joint.

as for what to do after lunch…what about looking at the windows at saks and walking around the store?  st patricks cathedral?  moma isn’t far.  i can’t think of anything that isn’t more $$…it’s midtown manhattan after all!

Wow! That’s a really hard area for inexpensive places to eat – all I can think of is fast food. There’s a Heartland Brewery right by Radio City on 51st & I think there’s a Connelly’s over there too (54 maybe?).  There’s also a bunch of little café’s underneath NBC – where you can still see the skaters but don’t have to eat at a restaurant in RockCntr. You can buy a sandwich & sit at little tables by the windows. There’s that Dean & Deluca by the Today Show courtyard too.

It’s a short/cheap cab ride to TSq – there’s Juniors, Viva Pancho, St. Andrews & Osteria al Dodge on 44th St. & Rest. Row’s close too.

Oh boy. I’m so sorry! I have nothing to offer you but sympathy.

Oh wow – tomorrow? OK, I don’t think the Bryant Pk fair is up yet is it? St. Pats is cool but only takes about 10m. What about the Library itself? Grand Central (I think the tours are free)?
