    the store with the sewing machines is on Broadway in SoHo, on the east side of the street just south of Prince Street, I think. I go past it regularly but can't remember the precise cross streets. Go inside the store, too, as there are tons more machines on display there. Also, there are now far fewer fabric kinds of stores on the lower east side (LES) and 14th St. Stick to the garment district and the quilt stores.

    where are you staying? Though I live in Manhattan, on the westside just south of Columbus Circle, I will be out of the city all summer.

    When I lived in Boston, I used to love to travel to NYC on business. I'd take an early shuttle, then bus into Grand Central Station and then walk to wherever my meetings were and visit all kinds of wonderful places. Enjoy your visit!

    You're going to LOVE "Jersey Boy's" & "Anything Goes" I saw them both, you picked the best.
    Be sure to go "City Quilter's" Best Quilt store in the city and very friendly.
    Guess I don't have to tell you to see Times Square, but also visit Chinatown, Soho, Little Italy as mentioned.
    Enjoy!!

    Have a good time. I'm also orginally from Brooklyn and live in Jersey now. DH and I love to go to "The City" (Manhattan) for shows, museums, meeting friends for lunch and just walking around. Have a great time, you have plenty of good advice. May in Jersey

    Thanks for telling me about City Quilter's. I will be sure to go there when I visit NY in August.
