things to do in nyc

Below is my list of favorite things to do in NYC (also see this thread).  I've bolded the things I consider to be must-do activities.
  • High Line Elevated Park - this is a neat park to walk along, made from an old elevated train track in the lower west side
  • World Trade Center Memorial (click here to arrange free tickets) and St. Paul's Chappell
  • St. Patrick's Cathedral
  • Central Park
  • 5th Avenue Stores (Bergdorf Goodman, Macy's, Saks, etc.)
  • Grand Central Terminal
  • NY Public Library (5th @ 42nd)
  • Times Square (at night)
  • Museums: Museum of Modern Art, Museum of Natural History, The Getty, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, etc.
  • United Nations (closed weekends)
  • NYSE Stock Market
  • Chinatown / Little Italy (dim sum/lunch)
  • Top of the Rock Observation Deck
  • Magnolia Bakery (from Sex in the City - this is now overrated and the cupcakes aren't as good any more)
  • Empire State Building
  • Broadway show
  • $1.50 pizza from a street vendor
  • Honey-roasted nuts from a street vendor
  • Hallal wrap from a street vendor
  • Seeing the Naked Cowboy in Times Square
  • Tour of Radio City Music Hall
One of my favorite things I've done in NYC is take the subway to Coney Island and walk around the amusement park.  I don't recommend this currently though due to the damage from the hurricane in 2012.
