Things to do in NYC

Ok, so I'm flying to NYC on Wednesday and since I've never been before and I have all of Thursday 6th free, I was just wondering what any New Yorkers out there would recommend doing for someone on a budget who only has one day!Any ideas would be muchly appreciated
Or even better, if anyone living in New York wants to show me round the city that would be great! Or anyone else who hasn't been before and wants to explore with a fellow U2-obsessive......

Jenny

Alot of cheap eats and the weather has been great.
Good Luck

If the weather's nice, make sure to walk around a lot... walk around the Central Park/Fifth Avenue/Rockefeller Center area, it's very nice. Soho is also great as dgirl mentioned, especially if you want to do a little shopping. Chinatown is good for cheap eats (and to check out as well). Times Square is worth seeing too, especially at night.

it depends what your interests are. central park for sure, you can walk by bono's apartment, also as has been recommended above, greenwich village and soho, of course. but not sure if you are interested in sights, pubs, shopping, or none of the above, so it all depends....

please... bono's new york apartment is in the san remo building, steve job's old apartment. it's public knowledge, has been printed in multiple newspapers, and the building also happens to be one of the most recognizable architectural designs in all of new york city. it's not like you could actually get inside the building by just knowing where it is.

For people into NY city architecture, it's really an interesting building.

That is indeed an interesting Bldg, whether architectural interest or not. How old is the Bldg? Does anyone know? I don't have time to read or research it, I am at work right now.

I love NYC and have been a bunch of times and always picked the penthouse of the San Remo as the dream place for me to live. I couldn't believe that of all the people to actually buy it, it was fucking Bono.

Actually, access to Bono's apartment is quite easy - if you're the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man. (Seriously, it looks like the previous tenant was Gozer.)
