    For me, New York is very much a city thats best explored by just walking around and seeing what you come across, but the highlights that I love to do whenever I am there are:

    Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge
    Visit the Tenament Museum down on Delancy
    Take the Staten Island Ferry
    Museum of Modern Art
    Eat at Katz's diner
    Drink a beer or two at Heartlands Brewery - I prefer the one at the back of Times Square
    Visit Grand Union Station - eat at Michael Jordans steak house
    Go to Blue Smoke for some jazz and a bucket of fries over 7 years ago

    Indeed NYC is best explored by walking around the different neighborhoods. Some ideas:

    +Walk the Brooklyn Bridge
    +Top of the Empire State Building
    +Walk through Central Park (always entertainment going on) Horse and buggy ride is overpriced
    +Pier 17 for street entertainment, shopping, bars and great views
    +Williamsburg Brooklyn (Bedford Ave) for food, bars and artists
    +Times Square
    +Ride a bike down the West Side bike path for scenic views and excellent parks near Battery Park
    +Museum of Modern Art or American Museum of Natural History
    +Gray Line Double Decker Bus tours (they may be cheesy, but many are informative and will take you all the way up to Harlem)
    +Best view of the city's sklyline. Take a ferry or Path train to Hoboken and visit Pier A for a spectacular view. If you enjoy bars there are about 50 of them along one strip in Hoboken. A W Hotel also just opened on the waterfront also.
    +Canal street for flea market type shopping
    -Don't waste your money on Italian dinning in Little Italy (Food is overpriced and for tourists)
    +Bryant Park for lunch
    +St. Patrick's Cathedral and while there Rockefeller Center
    +Grand Central Station
    +Stroll Soho
    +Statue of Liberty (Advised this is an all day affair)
    +Columbus Circle
    +Washington Square
    +Meat Packing District (posh dinning and nightlife) over 7 years ago
