Go to Lombardi's Pizzeria if you like really thin crust, coal oven pizza. I went with a bunch of people last Christmas and we all loved it.

If you really want cheap shopping, you can hit the outlet malls in New Jersey (no tax on clothes). Everything was a bargain, even with the conversion to Canadian dollars.

say hello to my 1 year old niece while you're there if you see her

don't forget Greenwich Village.
there are tons of shops and good restaurants there.

one of my favorite things to do in nyc is just hang out for several hours in central park, have a picnic and relax and watch the interesting people walk by. of course you probably wouldn't want to go to central park alone.

also see Blue Man Group perform at the Astor Theater!

*Don't forget to recheck my post about shopping/looking around in the East villiange & CBGB's.*

Some addtional ideas:

After or before going to WTC/Ground Zero, I suggest the folowing- Visit St Paul's Church Yhey has a very moving and well -presented exhibit on the minstry that began right after 9-11.

It's the steepled church on Broadway & Fulton that surviced/missed the falling steel sections of the falling buildings that day. And when you see how close it is, you;ll see why it was a miraculous thing. They began a ministry of providing the workers with food, shelter/sleeping, physical & mental care, the various supply donations fior the the workers and kind , soothing words.

BEAUTIFUL & FUN: walk over to the world financial center- the set of buildings behind/west of the WTC site, go through the buildings and you'll be in/on one of the nicest relativelly reccent {15- 8 years ago in it's full compleation} Urban Plaza's & Parks that run one above and below the Plaza on the waterfront area of the Hudson river.

It is a *****wonderful place and [/I]a whole different experience of NYC parks/area****[/I] that you'll get by going there. I frequented IT when I worked in thAT area and at other times for relaxation. i Still do A lot!!

OH, and see the Winter Garden of the WFC. It's the Giant Glass Atrium that you'll see from the WTC-site. It is another Miracle. The whole 'back' section was damaged/parly-smashed and holes in the glass, debris raining down on it on the inside. But the structure basically held and the whole front section of glass facing the Hudsaon river was not damaged.

If you want to get further experience of Mahattan and it's various looks and the fact that it IS an islaand...take the circle-line cruise around manhattan.

If you really don't know that much about Manhattan as a whole ESPECIALLY as you get to it's NORTHERN-most end --I believe you will be in for an amazing suprize_ {Like..."I never would have guessed Manhattan could ever look like that!} I'm making an educated guess from other's past reactions.

hope some of this is of interest to ya. and if you get to the Met Museum walk about five blocks up AND SEE TH4\E ONLY ARCHITECTURAL WORK OF fRANK lLOYD wRIGT IN nyc-- THE gUGGIE The Guggenheim Museum,,} my nickname for it when I worked there aBOUT 12 YRS AGO. ...OOOPP SORRY THE PINKY SLIP.

ENJOY YOU VISIT! YOU CAN POST HERE IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS WHEN YOU GO....i USUALLY CHECK inF EVERY OR EVERY OTHER DAY.

Went to NY before 9/11. Visited the WTC and afterwards found this beautiful little church. I fell in love with it. It was a miracle that it survived.

We stayed in the Chelsea area. Loved the area. We were there for 5 days and it wasn't enough. Saw Central Park, Museums, Battery Park, Liberty Island, Ellis Island and a Broadway show. Shopping in between. Exhausted when I got home but worth it. Have fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hi LMPOPa,

if you want and things work out schedual-wise for us both, I might want to meet up with you as you go to CBGB's.

I was hanging there not in the very first year but around 76, though I heard about those bands earlier on {some nasty lifestuff got in the way for a while}. saw Patti Smith, the Ramones & others there.. I'd bring my photos if Ican find them.

have a bunch of stories about that whole new/punk scene from about 75 -early 80's. Dazzled~~ your NYC new wave/ punk,u2, R&R guide.

shari~~ so glad you had a good time!

[you can then imgine how close that church came to ruin.}
