Yeah, for the most part I enjoyed it, but next time when I go back I'm going to focus on the less touristy parts of it. If I had to rank everything I did it would probably be like this:

Pretty bitchin: Top of ESB, Top of 30 Rock, NBC Studio Tour, Madame Tussauds, lower half of Manhattan Circle Line Cruise

Still fun: Times Square, Ripley's Believe It or Not, Staten Island ferry, Museum of Natural History, WW2 aircraft carrier next to circle line cruise


Next time I go I'm definitely trying to hit a Broadway show, pref. Book of Mormon, and spend some more time in Central Park. Also want to check out Canal St. just for shits and giggles (heard the Chinese food is pretty good and the fake handbag stands are pretty hilarious). And can't forget Yankee Stadium/MSG/Mets field.

The Intrepid is a must too especially now with a space shuttle there. Chelsea market if you're a foodie.

Definitely, I went last year while the shuttle was still covered under a huge wrap, but I might go back next time just to see the shuttle. From what I remember of the huge tent covering it I think it's gotta be pretty massive. I'm sure it took an insane amount of fuel to get that thing into space.

Yeah I was taken back the first time I saw a shuttle in person. They are HUGE.

Re: NY, NY Vacation Thread

If you're a beer drinker at all, you have to check out McSorleys Old Ale House. It's small, its packed, but its VERY cool for a quick beer (Only can order "light" or "dark"): McSorley's Old Ale House - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Staying on with a bar/museum, Fraunces Tavern is a bar (maybe my favorite I've been to)/musem: Fraunces Tavern® Museum

You don't need to drink to enjoy either of these two places, both very cool with a lot of history.

They're easy to spot, they're the orange ones.

I've stopped in there at 2pm on a Wednesday and the place is wall to wall with people.

It's definitely worth stopping in to check it out.

If you like BBQ, I went to a pretty decent place on my brief trip there a couple years ago.

Starters | Dallas BBQ

I gotta go to McSorleys, maybe this weekend.

I gotten buzzed here a couple times, friendly spot, the wildlife here is particularly good Jamf: The Official Website of Central Park - Loeb Boathouse

They have an outdoor bar and grill, reminds me of home. Good social spot
