A native NYer plays NYC tourist; what would you do/see?

Jump to last reply

I lved almost all of my life in NYC 'burbs. Went into NYC on a regular basis for entertainment, museums, shows etc.

I have not lived there since 2001. I am returning in August for 5 days and want to play tourist. Seeing a city through a visitors eyes is quite different than what you see when you are there as a "local".

Tell me what you thought were must see/do's when you were in NYC? What museums did you love, what Broadway shows did you see, what adventures did you go on and anything else that you really liked doing.

The only thing I would pass on is Top of the Rock and Empire State Building and Statue of Liberty. Been there, done that.

So, tell this former NYer where to go [hmmm, perhaps that was not how I should phrase that - I am still a NYer when it comes to humor]

Thanks.
