So...any 'must do's'??? (Im kinda on a budget but always good to know what I 'could' do :p)

And I would like to catch a show....not sure which one though. Would love to see The Lion King as I have already seen it at the west end and it was fab....but cant help thinking that seeing something I have already seen live is the waste of a ticket/experience...so thought I would ask what everyone else would love to see and choose from there :) I think I have listed all of them below....prob missed a few though :)

Must do for anyone on a budget is Staten island Ferry as it's free. The Empire State Building was also well worth it's entrance fee & you must take a walk in Central Park :)

It's a long way from Central Park but the Metro goes there. As for what's on Staten island - not too much but you get to photograph the Statue of Liberty on the way so it saves paying to go there :

the one thing I want to do there is eat a chinese meal out of a paper box.....Im more interested in the small pointless things that mean more to me personally than the generic things :)

OMG I didnt even think about ice skating! (I cant do it for long without my ankles giving in as I have extremely flexible ankles and go over on them very very easily) but I know the person Im going with has always wanted to try it :)

going AFK now but thanks for the replies....will check when I get back and rep and reply to anymore messages :)

As mentioned, Staten Island Ferry is a must for the night-time view of the skyline; as is looking back from the Brooklyn Bridge. The Metropolitan Museum of Art / Frick Collection / Guggenheim then a stroll down 5th Avenue to Washington Arch via Rockefeller Center / St Pat's Cathedral.... :thumbsup:

If you are thinking of going to a show buy the tickets on the day from the tkts booth in time square. I went to Shrek the Musical - very good and 50% off the published price. Also recommend visiting the m&m world store!

I thought the M&M store was in Vegas? I thought that about the tickets but then lookin online there are $46 West Side Story tickets, fair enough in the top tier but row A so they should be pretty good views and for £30 seems very good.....

chicago? Hmmm Im thinking Ill be going down the 'classic' line so that could be an option :) sushi however (although never tried!) doesnt interest me,,,,
not very into museums, and think wall street may bore me a bit :)
what is 'hells kitchen district'? just a group of resteraunts visited by the show?
dont know what Tribeca is nor the 'flat iron building' so will have to google :)

OMG!! I've always wanted to do that!! Although I've been to New York & have never found a chinese takeaway. Maybe I just didn't look hard enough.

My tips:
(As already stated) the Rockfeller centre is a must. The view from the 'top of the rock' is far better than the view from the ESB.
Grand Central Station is great for people watching, particularly around rush hour.
Greenwich Village (well alot of the neighbourhoods) are great for wandering around.
Central Park is a wonderful place. If you're a fan of John Lennon then a visit to Straberry Fields is a must. If you're at the top of the Park (near 5th ave i think) then you can ice skate at the Woolman Rink.

Are you a fan of film or tv? I love going to see locations where they were made. There's a few places to visit if you're a fan of Sex & The City etc.

Have fun...I'm soooo jealous!

Forgot to mention - the Flatiron building. Is my favourite building, it's fascinating to look at! Hells Kitchen is an area of Manhattan. Always reminds me of the film Sleepers. Used to be a place to avoid but in recent years is supposed to be a nice area to visit. Tribeca is the place to visit if you want to see the fire house used in Ghostbusters :oops:

Thanks for the info...If I dont find a chinese that does it I will not be happy :x think im staying in manhattan so the Hells Kitchen place is a maybe....Kinda scared of ending up in a dodgy part of town.....reviews for every single hotel are very VERY mixed (apart from the rediculously priced ones) Think I need to make a list of things to do....then I can tick them off :)
cheers
