One question I have is where to watch Italy/England sunday. Is there somewhere that stands out in Little Italy (I'm Italian and want to be with the home crowd
)? I also plan on going there to try Lombardi's...
As for shopping, I hear good things about Uniqlo. Opinions? We'll be heading to the Woodbury outlets afterwards as well, though given that I rarely get to go to NYC I'd like to check this place out (I hear it's unique to NYC or at least doesn't have that many stores elsewhere).
That's about it for specifics. If anyone has any general tips I'm all ears. I've visited most interesting places (seen a broadway show, top of the rock, museum of natural history, central park...), and since we'll be leaving monday I just want to get as much done and have as much fun as possible.
Whatever bar you choose to watch the game, call ahead to make sure you can all get in. I went with a buddy and his cousin to a bar in Union Square to watch an Italy game during the World Cup and they carded us. Woodbury Commons has some solid stores but it's about an hour and a half away from the city. Unless it's on the way, since your time is so limited I'd skip it. I haven't gone in a few years but last time I picked up some cheap **** from North Face and Timberland.
Go to Coney Island for a little bit and then take the train over to L&B Spumoni Gardens, best pizza in NYC for sure. Not the regular pizza, but the squares.
