When you head up Museum Mile - before visiting the Frick say hello to Pale Male and Lola

Admittedly, this is self-serving, but we (and thousands of others who have toured with us), think we do a really great job. If you want a custom personal tour of New York City, check us out at the above web address.

Dear Family

McDonald's sells the most hamburgers but they are clearly not the best tasting, but the best known.

I agree with the highline and the Brooklyn Bridge. Also suggest, either a cocktail at either Plunge a rooftop bar at the Gansevoort Hotel (meatpacking)or Mandarian Oriental(near Columbus Circle), Limelight Shops (6th and 20th - Church converted to a shoping mall. For restaurants - stick with the Fodors guide and always ask locals; you can't go wrong!

I would suggest the Tenement Museum on the Lower East Side

I agree Katz is for lunch, I'd not want to go walking around that area at night especially if you don't know exactly where you are. There are so many much better choices in the city for really good food. For a good burger, not far from there would be The White Horse Tavern, on Hudson St, REALLY good burgers there, and you can wander through the West Village, can then get a subway back to your hotel.

The flea market may dissappoint, it is not what it used to be, now there is only one large outdoor spot and one indoor
The Garage on W. 24, between 6th and 7th, and it's mostly sort of how to say this nicely, kind of junky. You might want to try and find a street fair which you might like better, and lots of choices for food there as well. You might have a backup plan for the flea market.

I'd also recommend The Cloisters as one of the best museums we have in the City. It is part of the Met and houses some of the priceless treasures of the Met from the 1500-1600.
A spring day would be beautiful there.

Macy's Spring Flower show will be up while you are here, and if you haven't seen it before, it is a must see.

Daffy's is a good suggestion, you may have to pick through some of the clothing but worth the trip, and the 57th St store seems to be the best to me, as well as the store on Madison Ave and 44th. We also have Bolton's and Loehman's Ann Taylor and The Loft and Filene's as suggested stops as well. You might try the Union Square Filene's and the new outlet I think it's Off the Rack and there's a HUGE DSW for shoes.

Hope you have a great visit.

Once again ironman has resurrected a post almost a year old. Don't keep it going.

These are great suggestions. I'll be in NYC the last week in March, and will definitely investigate some of these things!
