Next month I’ll be in New York for a week or so and I was wondering if anyone had tips for good places to check out, fun activities and places to visit?
I definitely need to check out a couple Magic The Gathering stockists and maybe play some games whilst i’m over there.

Enjoy, I am sure it will be a blast where ever you visit in NY.
A city of 15 million can’t be seen in a week, but there is Times Square, Broadway shows, Statue of Liberty, and on and on. Bring lots of money, you’re going to need it. 🙂
I forget the location but theres an awesome bar think its called the arcade. Its like a huge retro arcade and bar combination. Imagine dave and busters with more character. Definitely recommend it
Carmines Restaurant, Metropolitan Museum of Art/Natural History Museum, gotta ride the subway, walking around Times Square Central Park, Nathan’s hot dogs.. Many thanx for visiting my blog and have a wonderful day. Peace.
Wellll, I’d avoid the City and head NW to the lakes below Lake Ontario. And I’d check out the Indian reservations around there. Also, the Catskill Mountains on your way up there. But, if you’re stuck in that city (which I don’t understand why anyone wants to go there! honest!) I’d go E and check out Long Island. Or Connecticut. That would be a trip almost as good as Highway 66 if you stay off the expressways 🙂 I’d love to see them all again, but not NYC. Hope you have a good time anywhere you do go, tho!
Check out all NYC/Manhattan posts on my blog.
I live there and have written several times about cool things to do and see. I’d highly recommend the Immigration Museum on Ellis Island — really a moving experience, which also gets you out into the harbor to see the skyline. Times Square is just insane — jammed with tourists looking at billboards. Meh.
I prefer the Village — which has a middle, east and west (I mean Greenwich Village)..lots of great cafes and restaurants, indie shops and history. Rocco’s or Veniero’s pastry shop for old-school Italian; McSorley’s for an ancient tavern; Soho or Tribeca just to see the cast-iron buildings and cobblestone streets.
It’s a terrific city and i hope you really enjoy it. Take a few buses (instead of the subway) so you can really see it;the bus down 5th avenue will let you off on Houston Street (pronounced HOW-ston) and then you’re right in Soho (stands for So of Houston.) Yes, you need money, but you don’t have to spend a lot on food, for example, or buses and subway; MUCH cheaper than London.
Central Park, Battery Park, the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Empire State Building, Metropolitan Museum of Art…BTW, I’ve been to NYC a zillion times because my brother has lived there for nearly 50 years, one of my sons got his PhD there, and another son works for facebook right downtown, but not too long ago we took one of those hop on/hop off tour buses, and it was well worth it!! Hope you have a great time! If you’re there on a Sunday, Tim Keller’s Redeemer Presbyterian Church in downtown Manhattan is great! Contact info: http://www.redeemer.com/sundays/service_info.html
