For dinner… there are so many great restaurants in Little Italy. YOu have to go to the Top of the Rock… in my opinion it’s better than the Empire State Building.  

For some reason I’m drawing a blank.. If i think of more I’ll let you know.

Next April? Restaurants in NYC come and go and fall into and out of fashion, so check back next year 🙂

 

Not sure of your budget and how much time you will be here, but here are some touristy options:

– Empire State Building

– NY Harbor Cruise (see the Statue of Liberty)

– Macy’s in Herald Square

– Times Square (note that all real New Yorkers avoid it like the plague)

– Tour the World Trade Center Memorial

– Rockefellar Center

– Walk the High Line

 

Not-as-touristy things:

– Get a burger a Shake Shack in Madison Square Park

– Check out Museum of Natural History & the Metropolitan Museum of Art

– Picnic in Central Park

– Yankee Stadium (you can see a baseball game in April!)

– Go shopping in SoHo & Chinatown

– Visit Williamsburg for shopping and the flea market

 

Hope that helps!

In addition to Statue of Liberty/Harbor Cruise/Top ofthe Rock or Empire State Building, my must-sees would be:

MOMA (Museum of Modern Art), The Metropolian Museum of Art, Museum of Natural History or Museum of the City of New York

There’s tons of other  museums that are beautiful and fun to explore if you have the time: Rubin Museum, Lower East Side Tenement Museum, The Whitney, The Guggenheim.

Also the new 9/11 Memorial is really moving.

Go to TKTS booth in Times Square or South Street Seaport and get half price Broadway tix.

Great places to eat (fancy):Eleven Madison Park, Scarpetta, Jean Georges, Peter Luger (for steak), Blue Hill, Gramercy Tavern, The Modern (museum at MOMA), Momofuku or Ma Peche)

Great places to eat (Classic/more affordable): Katz’s Deli for giant sandwiches, Junior’s for cheesecake, Grimaldi’s or Lucali or Roberta’s for pizza, Veselka for potato pancakes and pierogies, go to Chinatown for Dim Sum

I would plan on anywhere from 50-70 degrees F for April. April is a good month to be in NY- not too hot and not too cold. I don’t really have much to add on to anything that has been suggested, but I’d just like to second the High Line. I haven’t personally walked it yet, but I’ve heard from many people it’s a must do.

For breakfast (arrive about 9:30am and wait in line) – Serendipity’s is a famous ny treat and do order one “frozen hot chocolate” to share.

A block away is “dylan’s” candy shop where you can buy any kind of nostalgic and new candy.  A must!

While you’re in the neigborhood, visit Bloomingdale’s department store.

Also check out Lincoln center area and Columbus Circle (you may want to go to a movie, see a jazz show or opera or ballet).  It’s great just to walk around (58th street to 66th street, west side).

Everything’s on line.  Enjoy.
