7. Take the Staten Island Ferry.
8. Go see a Yankee game.
9. If you "got game," go to a playground in Brooklyn or Harlem and take in a pickup basketball game. Better yet, see if you can get picked.

Visit the Empire State Building or World Trade Center Observation Deck at dusk.

Sit by the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park.

Stop by Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick's Cathedral.

Eat a bagel at H&H Bagel (Broadway & West 80th Street).

Take a tour of the New York Stock Exchange and see America in action.

I also have to second the idea of riding on the Staten Island Ferry. It's free and the view is wonderful.

So many great suggestions, many of my faves already listed. Here are a few more.

Go to Katz's deli for any artery clogging, yet scrumptious sandwich

Stroll through Shakespeare Gardens In Central Park

Sit an outdoor cafe/restaurant and people watch

Eat a really good meal at Gramercy Tavern or Babbo (THE BEST!)

Run, walk, bike or blade on the West Side down through Hudson River Park to Battery Park and have an icecream cone at Custard Beach
