    People do not think of all of NY when they talk about it .Up here by me in WNY there are alot of things for example Letchworth State Park ,Niagara Falls,or even Watkins Glen (not here by me but still NY) Adirondaks, I would suggest getting a pamphlet of things to see in NY it covers all areas. Hope you have a GREAT trip!

    As has been said, NYC has so much to offer depending on what your interests are. There is a site which has wonderful information including a travel guide, maps, event calendar, links to the top must-see sites. http://www.nyc.com/events

    I was born in the Bronx and went to college there as well. There are so many wonderful restaurants like the Russian Teahouse, L'etoile, Mama Leone's. Be adventurous and foods you can't get at home. And they are right about the pizza; I miss that - especially the Sicilian.

    I agree the shops in the garment district can be so fun. I remember one with ribbons and trim. Sensory overload.

    Have fun.

    My thoughts are the same as Cassie69! In case you were NOT referring to just NYC, the rest of the state of New York has a great deal of beautiful scenery to see. The Adirondack Mountains, the Catskill Mountains, the beautiful Finger Lakes area that include very many award-winning wineries, fabulous gorges to hike. The most notable gorges are Watkins Glen, Letchworth, Buttermilk Falls, among many others. Some of the great places to visit are the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, thw Women's Hall of Fame and Women's National Historic Park in Seneca Falls, the Harriet Tubman House in Auburn, the George Eastman (Kodak) house in Rochester, and Niagara Falls. There is SO much more to see in the state of New York than just NYC. It is beautiful state with mountains, lakes and farmland. I hope you get to experience it all!

    Also there is Long Island. Our beaches got a little messed up from the storm, but they are still wonderful. We have light houses, and islands off our main island. Only an hour out of the city.

    My daughter lives there and spring is the best time to visit. I love to visit Central park. Our first visit we took the red line tour. We got off at many stops. It was a great way to see the city.
    See a show and eat lots of pizza!
    Happy Quilting.

    If you are a real quilter and love art you should visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the MoMA-museum of modern art. Designs and color. Don't get me wrong, this is not just for art quilters, its for your spirit. Here is an introduction to the top three museums. The research on the internet.

I went back a few years later and stayed in the Da Vinci it was on 57th, I think, Near the Ed Sullivan Theater. It is a town made to walk. We went to see "Wicked", Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Yankee Stadium we were able to see a game while there, Shea Stadium, Coney Island, China Town, Little Italy, Wall Street, the Twin Tower site, Battery Park, Central Park. It was funny one day we came out of the subway, and my DD and I were standing there making sure we knew where we were and suddenly realized we where at the Court House they show in "Law & Order" all the time. It was a Saturday so it wasn't busy. We drove by the New York Public Library, the United Nations and so much more. One of the days there were a bunch of second graders lined up to go into Carnegie Hall with their records (flute-a-phones) and I laughed and said, some day they will be able to tell their family they performed at Carnegie Hall.

    If you go during the holidays you definitely want to go to Macy's to see their window displays and the other shops around.

    So it isn't so much what we could recommend - it is what do you want to see? I went to the garment district without my daughters because neither one sews. They have shops with nothing but buttons & trims. Lots of very fancy fabric but I never did find plain cotton - but I was so exhausted by then I didn't look real hard. After all we do have a garment district in Los Angeles. And I had already been to Salem MA.

    Make a list of what you want to see and get a map of the city and then plan what to see when. There is a site seeing tour bus, not sure what it costs, but I think when we went it was $28 a day. But can't remember if that was for both of us or each.

    I love that city and would go back every chance I can - unfortunately my husband doesn't care to go, so that is why God gave me my girls. They love to travel with me.

    You hit it right on the nail!! I LOVE NEW YORK!! I was born in Queens Village, but grew up in upstate NY. Now live in Nevada. I can tell you this ... New York is still my home. I miss it so. When I make a trip back home, I usually get to spend a week with my cousin in Long Island. We make sure we take a trip into Manhattan. I love your comment about the fabric district. I've been through there and was bursting with joy!

    So, newjeepgreen .... I do hope you get to take that trip to New York. It's a fabulous state. Not only Manhattan, but upstate as well. New York is more than concrete & sky scrapers. The country in New York is beautiful. I'll have to find a picture of the home I grew up in so you can see how beautiful it is. Enjoy and have fun!

    don't just go to NYCity, the rest of New York is beautiful and interesting too. Along the Hudson is West Point, and some beautiful homes and sites, Albany is really nice too, the Finger Lake region has a lot to offer and Western New York has the Falls. Enjoy the Whole State.

    This is my childhood home in New York.

    Found the picture of the home where I was raised. It's the house on the hill. This picture was taken in early May. The countryside was just starting to come alive! I'm planning a trip back in September of this year. Can't wait to get home and see family & friends.
