NYC first-timers...2 days. PLEASE help! No time to search & plan!

Jump to last reply

Hi! I've been invited to join my cousin for a quick trip to NYC and I can't wait!! The problem is, we leave on Sunday, and I don't really have time to separate the "Must Do, true experience" from the "Tourist Traps". PLEASE help me weed thru the junk and find the gems! On a small budget...

We're arriving Sunday evening, around 5pm, and staying in Times Square. Monday, we have tickets to Phantom of the Opera, and we leave Tuesday around noon. I am so overwhelmed!! I don't want to miss anything, but I don't know where to start.

Here's some of the things I might like to include:
1. PIZZA! Real, honest to goodness, gooey NY pizza. No gourmet fluffy stuff please.
2. Staten Island Ferry, to see the Lady and Ellis Island. Is it worth it to spend time going to Ellis Island with not much time in the City?
3. Chrysler Building, because I heard its actually a better view of the ESB, and cheaper, also!
4. FOOD! I'd love to find some genuine places in Little Italy, or a good hamburger joint, a bakery? We don't do much "ethnic food" unless you count Italian ;)
5. Neighborhoods--Harlem? Brooklyn?
6. Maybe a good jazz club? We aren't drinkers, so not really looking for bar atmosphere.

Please help me make the most of this wonderful surprise opportunity!!
