Coming to NYC; what to see?

I'm fortunate enough to be able to visit NYC around the middle of October and wanted to see if I could get opinions and information on what I should try to look at and see. Obviously, my wifey and I will be hittin' up the regular tourist stuff, but I was hoping to ask for more ideas.

Anyone?

If you do plan on doing all the "touristy" stuff, I would definitely recommend the CityPass. Cuts your price for admission to all the sights listed on the website.


I would use CitySearch to find your way to all the great food in the city. Also, don't confine yourself to Manhattan. One of the best (and romantic) views is down by the piers in Brooklyn looking at the skyline.

Well I used to live in NYC but now live in NJ. Obviously you guys probably want to visit the top of the Empire State building. Well its usually a 2-hr wait so the Top of the Rock is a good alternative. You can see the city just as well. Make sure to visit either one at night. Its a totally different experience.

Im with Rafa. You should come out and meet us.

If you have a chance, you should head out to the Hamptons (Eastern Long Island), not sure if you're a Seinfeld fan or not?

If so, you can check out the soup na*i (trying to be PC here), his website is http://www.originalsoupman.com/ and definitely try the Carnegie deli (http://www.carnegiedeli.com/home.php)....and you can't beat our pizza and bagels here in NY

How long are you in NY for?

Here are some great restaurant ideas (depending on how much $$ you want to spend):

* Benjamin Steakhouse - Best steak experience I have ever had. Expensive, but worth it. Try the bacon. Trust me.
* Uncle Jack's - Also a good steakhouse.
* Dock's Oyster Bar - This is one of my wife's favorite spots in the city. Great raw seafood!
* Rue 57 - Great sushi restaurant.
* Tao - Great Asian inspired food and a very hot bar scene.
* McSorley's Old Ale House - One of the oldest (perhaps the oldest) bars in NY. Just cool to go in and look at the pictures on the walls.
* Intrepid Sea Air & Space Museum
* Marriott Marquis Hotel - There is a pretty cool bar on the 7th floor (I think) where you can sit and overlook Times Square. There is also a decent restaurant with a nice view there as well.
* Carnegie Deli - Famous for its sandwiches.
* Amish Market - If you are looking for a place to grab a great sandwich, try this place out.
* Tons of great places to eat in Little Italy. However there is only one place to go for dessert if you go there to eat dinner. Ferrara Bakery and Cafe. It is a good place for an after dinner drink also. Rumor has it that many of the Italian restaurants get their desserts from Ferrara.

Other than the above, you can walk into almost any restaurant or bar and find a great spot. Enjoy yourself and have a great time. BTW, if you tell me the types of places you like (fancy, dives, dance clubs, etc) I can give you some more ideas.
