New York has really great food ranging from low-cost to fine dining. There are so many ethnicities that dining there is a global smorgasboard - so tourists - don't eat what you can find at home - taste the world. A nice place to have a simple mind-clearing experience is sitting at Washington Square. Also all of 42nd Street I believe is theater row commonly referred to as Off Broadway. The last time I was there, I saw the play, The Tunnel. Excellent. Wasn't truly a play but a series of characters played by one individual to explore the types of people who live in New York and their struggle and journey to get there - actually to America. Also, visited near Houghton a Jewish museum that took us into the walkups as they were at the turn of the century and it was a representation of what it was like for many people upon immigrating to live in a neighborhood in these tight unlight spaces and how horrendous it must have been when the great fire of (1907?) killed so many people in one notable fire. The fire was a testament of a city to change. The building codes were changed after that fire to create "safer" living conditions.
Don't forget - eat several slices of red velvet cake (we don't get this wonderful joy in the Southwest and West Coast).
