Honestly I would postpone my trip. There are a lot of issues going on right now up there, from transportation to power. I spoke with my mom and some friends and they said that the city still has some ways to go to be back 100%. If you absolutely must go though, call places and check they are open.

Eh, I think you will be fine.  We are not 100% yet, true, but I ventured downtown today and a lot of places were open.  Upper midtown has had power throughout, so things are not bad there at all.  

What type of food do you like?  Price points?  I am full of suggestions 🙂

You should be fine coming here by next weekend. The trains are mostly up and everywhere should have power by then. That being said, if you could give a donation or spend some time volunteering we would appreciate it. At the same time, small businesses in this city need the tourism revenue, so please come and support people who have lost a lot of money and 

There are lots of amazing things to do. Definitely visit the museums that PP mentioned, they are all open and I think all will be fully open to the public by next weekend. 

What are you thinking about for a nice dinner and what other things to do want to do? Feel free to PM me if that is easier.

You can’t go to NYC without going to see a broadway show! Check out TKTS.com website for latest discount tickets. You could also hang out and walk around Time Square and check out Central Park.

@starfish695:  For Italian, I LOVE Grano, in the West Village.  Delicious homemade pastas, and a great laid back, romantic atmosphere.  It is one of our go-to spots for a celebratory dinner, and is quite affordable.  The gnocchi is amazing.  

For sushi, Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar and Grill is one of my favorites, and pretty close to your hotel from the sound of it.  It is tucked in 6 Hotel, right by Columbus Circle, and is consistently delicious.  It is also open late, which I love.  The Blue Ribbon spots downtown are also fantastic.  

Since you will be here on a weekend, you HAVE to do brunch.  My two favorites are both downtown.  Kittichai is the best option for a boozy brunch (which I recommend) – $25 for an entree and AYCD blood orange mimosas, lychee bellinis, and spiced bloody maries (which are all phenomenal).  Jane is also delicious, but only includes one drink with the entree, and there is always a wait, even with a reservation.  The food is just eye rolling back good though, so it is worth it (and worth it to make a res – I always pity people that try to walk in without one).

Let me know if you have any more questions – you guys will have a great trip!
