New York here I come!

I'm going to New York in May. Does anyone have any suggestions about what I can see? How about restaurants? I'd like to go to an Italian place.

Carmines is delicious. There are 2 of them. I think one is in the 90's and the other more midtown. Not sure haven't been in a while.

If we're talking about great Italian restaurants in New York City, then I highly recommend Ecco in the financial district. I believe it's on Chambers St. and the food was delicious with excellent service.

Catch a Broadway play if you can, and the Today show too

Oh, wow, there are so many Italian Restaurants to choose from Carmine's is a little overrated to me, but, yeah, but there's Lupa, Esca and Babbo for starters. Too many options to list here.

I'd be remiss if I did not suggest you make a stop at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It looks boring on the outside, but it's wonderful on the inside, and it's nestled against Central Park.

NYC is a lot of good and bad things, but it's, to me, the most amazing man-made place on Earth. I hope you enjoy it.

It's one of my favorite places in the world.

There's a great room with glass for a wall, overlooking the park. There's Greek sculpture in there, with plants and off to the right is a Frank Lloyd Wright sample room. I love to sit in there and read or listen to my Ipod and people watch.

I LOVED Carmines!! I have a photo somewhere of me and a friend attempting the "Titanic" desert - very yummy and very very naughty!!

I also loved the Blue Water Grill in Union Square for very yummy seafood. I sat on the same table as Carrie did on SATC there :blush:.

For a drink and nice bar food, I would recommend Merchants NY at 112 Seventh Ave, Chelsea. I knew the people who owned this bar, and another, so I might be a little bit biases, but i had the best mojitos and green apple martinis here. I also seem to remember great lobster ravioli.

As for what to do? What ISN'T there to do? I loved the Met, and the museum of natural history. Central Park. Times Square. The Guggenheim. The highlight of my trip tho was going to see NY Rangers play at Madison Square Gardens - that was awesome!!

Oh God....I want to go back SOOOO badly

The Taco Bell in Penn Station isn't bad.

Yeah, I was broke when I was there.

No, they do not take Canadian money.

That's too bad, since it's now worth more, or on par, with the USD.

I found that one out the hard way when trying to cross the Triborough Bridge on the way to LaGuardia to get zoney, Schmeg, and LMPA. They gave me a ticket for $6

But be forwarned, it is a bitch to try to find a foreign currency exchange. Do it before you go. Banks don't seem to be willing to do it (at least the ones on Broadway in the Upper West Side), and on the weekends most of the exchanges are closed. I had to go from the West 90's to Times Square just to find one, and got charged out the ass for the privilege of getting US dollars.

I'm going to the Met, the Cloisters, and I'm going to look for shrines as well.
