I have never been to New York City, DD21 and I will be there for about 3 days in March.

What are some things we should do/places we should go?

There's Radio City, South Street Seaport (I haven't been there in years), shopping (of course), Central Park (There's a zoo in there). FAO Schwartz is awesome! The site where George Washington was inaugurated. Battery Park. Wall St.

Just be forewarned, the last time I was in Battery Park we were followed by street vendors (or whatever you want to call them) selling watches. We couldn't say no enough. Then finally they left us alone. It was annoying.

Have fun on your trip.

I second what everyone else said. The best thing you can do is arrange for more than 3 days in the city JK. I hope you have a great time.

I'll be there too in April for a conference. I want to see Wicked.

Is the Statue of Liberty worth the trip?

My recommendations:
I've done the circle line tour, been in the Empire State Building, the Met (my personal favorite), the Museum of Natural history, time square, 5th Ave stores, dined in what's left of Little Italy. And everyone should take in a Broadway show.

I will be there for 3 days as well, and was wondering what to do! I know of 2 things: the met, and the 911 memorial.

I was wondering if the statue of liberty was worth it, too.

I Broadway show would be fun, but aren't they expensive?

DD wants to go to MoMA, we are staying in the garment district, I want to spend the day at Spandex World

I don't think I could go to the 9/11 memorial, too sad.

There is just so much stuff to do and see it's overwhelming!

Go to TKTS in Times Square the day of the show. Just don't be too particular WHICH show and you can get a pretty good deal.

Make sure you try some NY Style pizza while you're there.

I'm addicted to the travel channel food shows, so I'd be trying to get to as many of the restaurants I've seen on them as possible.

The #1 thing to see IMO is the Tenement Museum - http://www.tenement.org/. They do an amazing job of depicting the living conditions of so many immigrants who entered this country through NYC. Then walk to Katz's for lunch. Or start at Katz's and walk to the Tenement Museum.

I'd get the current copy of Time Out New York or check their website for current entertainment offerings.

Things listed in TONY include: If you're interested in high-brow music, Juilliard and Mannes music schools have recitals going on all the time. There are also weird goings on - once we found and attended a meeting of the NYC Viola Society, which turned out to be a jam session with 3/4 of the American String Quartet.

TONY also led us to the same repertoire played by the same artists in 2 places - Saturday night at a HS auditorium for $6 and Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Center for $50-$100.

Have fun - and the Tenement Museum is amazing.

Of course, you could also just spend the whole time at the Metropolitan Museum....
