I'd hardly know where to begin, however:
1) go to Times Square and stop by the TKTS booth. You can get same day tickets
for a Broadway or off-Broadway show at about half-price on an as available basis
. Doing this you could take in a Saturday matinee from 2 to about 4 on Saturda
y afternoon or a Friday evening performance at * o'clock.
2) go see the Statue of Liberty and ellis Island
3) visit Wall St. and while downtown go to the World Trade Center Observation De
ck then take a round trip on the Staten island ferry for a great view of the har
4) Museums, museums, and more museums. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Mode
rn, the Frick, the Museum of Natural History and Planetarium.
5) the Central park Zoo
6) Visit FAO Shawartz toy store across from the Plaza Hotel
7) ride the subway
8) take a walk through Greewich Village around Washington Square Park

Subject: Trip to NYC
I wass just informed that I am making a business trip to New York
City the end of this week.
Having never been there before, I am looking for suggestions on
enjoyable ways to spend the free time I will have. I will arrive at
LaGuardia at about 9:00 pm on Thursday and will be staying in Midtown
Manhatten (42nd Street and 3rd Avenue area). I have a business
appointment within a couple blocks of the hotel at 9:00 am Friday
that will last somewhere between four and 10 hours. My time is then
free until I leave from JFK at 9:15 on Saturday night.
I enjoy all of the normal tourist things like museums, etc. as well
as the non-tourist things like exploring business and warehouse
I am completely open to suggestions as the largest city I have been
to before is Chicago, and I didn;t see a whole heck of a lot of it.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
