OT - Visiting NY. Tips/Ideas?

Hey guys.. did a search on 'Visiting NY' and went 4-5 pages deep, and didn't find anything recent or relevant..


Planning a trip to NY later this month and i've never been.
We'll be there June 26-30 (Thurs-Mon) and will be staying at W 47th and about 8th... (a block away from Times Square).

I'm early in the research process so i thought i'd hit up the local ranger community... because from the initial searches on the net, the choices/options are mind-blowing and almost over-whelming.

What are some of the Must-See/Do things in the short 4 days/nights i have there. fyi, it will be just my wife and I, and we're 32.

it appears that we will be be staying in an ideal location and should be able to walk or take a short cab to most places..

Considering the number of possibilities, i was hoping get people's opinions in a couple specific areas...

Maybe 2 places should eat at...
Top 2-3 things we Have to see..
2 places we should party at..
2 shows we should see..
Were we need to walk..
etc...

any input would be great...
thanx in advance.


- for example, based initial opinion/searches, i'm leaning towards checking out the Times Square Arts Center for one of their comedy shows... unless people suggest otherwise..

We had a sticky for all of these threads? where did that go?

I can go on for hours about the city... theres just so much.

Dont know what you want to spend on dinner (be prepared to) but here are some top end places worth checking out if you're into fine dining or even to get a drink and check it out.

Mercer Kitchen
Ono at Gansevoort
Buddahkhan
Aquavit
Gotham Bar and Grill
Town
Tao (great bar, if you can get a drink)
Asia de Cuba
Morimoto
Del Posto
Spice Market
The Place (romantic and cheaper)

etc. etc. etc ....

Besides the Place, all of those will bust your wallet and thats just scratching the surface.

The Meatpacking District is hot right now if you are a 20 something... lot to do down there and all in walking distance.

Not sure if you are into clubs but if you are PM me ive been to all of them, though those days are nearing and end.

Ton of upitty places and lounges, but for the money the dive bars and run of the mill watering holes will do just fine if your not into all the over the top stuff.
