Since there’s like 325093829058208 things to do in NYC, it may be good to know what are some things he likes to do?  And what does he not like to do?  Museums, site seeing, nature/parks, food?   Etc?

Hmm go to top of the rock, the highline, and/or the MoMA. 

Food: There are waaay too many options. What kind of food? What area will you be in? What price range? What sort of formality?

Hmmm…okay well he has too broad of taste.  🙂 Well, no not really.

Well, NYC has some amazing museums.  The Met is an amazing art museum, as is the Museum of Natural History.  And because they’re right near Central Park (and therefore on city property) there’s only a donation requested amount.  So you can really pay whatever you want which is awesome.  

Some other cool things about NYC…walking across the Brooklyn Bridge is awesome.  And you have a nice view of Manhattan that way.  Central Park and Riverside Park are very nice as well.  Always a must see.

Then there’s the really touristy stuff–Time Square, the Empire State Building, Rockafeller Center.  Also not QUITE as touristy though also really nice are St. Patrick’s Cathedral (right across from Rockafeller Center), the main library, and Grand Central Station.  And the nice thing about all of those (well maybe not the Empire State Building) is that they’re all relatively close and in walking distance of each other.

You can also look at specific neighborhoods in Manhattan and walk around those–two that I find particuarly interesting are the Lower East Side and the financial district.  Both totally different…the LES has a lot of history and culture.  And it’s sort of close to Chinatown which has lots of inexpensive souvineers.  And the financial district has Wall Street and the stock market which is interesting, as well as some really interesting old architecture.  And if you’re down there, you can take the Staten Island Ferry which is free, and provides a nice view of the Statue of Liberty.  

Oooooh and speaking of that, and museums…I really enjoy the Ellis Island museum.  I think it’s really interesting, and I think it’s really cool the way it’s arranged.  

I’m sure I could keep going on and on.  But that’s just a starting point 🙂

This is a really cool bar

http://www.230-fifth.com/

it’s a roof top bar and has a great view of the empire state building. I’ve taken people who have visited me there before and we didn’t even have a drink we just went to see the view.

I would for sure explore central park, you could spend an entire day there really, but it is a must see!

I don’t know if this would interest you guys, but I’d definitely see a Broadway show. For a great discount, you should check out the TKTS booth in Times Square. You can get discounted tickets to pretty much any show, except for the really popular ones (Wicked, The Lion King, Jersey Boys). If you’re interested in a show, I can send more specific recommendations–just let me know!

And I second the Met and Ellis Island. The Met is simply filled with amazing art, and there’s so much to see. Ellis Island has a ton of really informative exhibits, including one that basically takes you through the process of immigrating to the U.S. It’s really great!

For a great but budget meal, hit up the Shake Shack in Madison Sq Park.  Probably one of the best burgers you’ll have anywhere.

I’ll tell you some places not to bother eating (aka getting ripped off for mediocre food): Little Italy… crap well apart from individual restaurants, that’s the first touristy one that comes to mind.
