GREAT SITES IN GENERAL IN NYC:                                           

My favs in the city:

"Top of the Rock"efeller plaza building

Empire State Building

Times Square! 
Hotel: (Marriot Marque seems to have the best hotel prices to stay, and nice rooms)

Central Park (Strawberry Fields and the great lawn, Boat pond etc.)


the Met, (art museum, AND the opera house!)

Guggenheim Museum


the New Whitney Museum

Statue of liberty of course! the ferry ride alone is worth it for great NYC views...

Grand Central Station Terminal

Stroll through the west village:

Visit this webpage for a bunch of cool places: the subway station is pretty neat:
Hidden Subway Station Beneath City Hall
Bowling Alley at the Frick Collection at the THE FRICK MUSEUM, great building to see...
Also, around wall street, there are some amazing buildings to walk through...
Like the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, free tours...
Teddy Roosevelt's home tour, is kind of neat...
there is the new 911 memorial to see...
Trinity Church...
A link to most museums:
ABC HOME STORE amazing home-goods/design store, and has three major yummy restaurants inside

The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 12th Avenues.
