We're going to NYC!!

I hate to admit it, but I'm 40 years old and have never been to New York --

There are a couple of major US cities I have no desire to go to -- Houston, Dallas and Atlanta -- to name them.

I've been to LA, Chicago, Seattle and many of the smaller places --- really, can you call yourself well-traveled domestically unless you've been to Ely, MN?? or Seward, NE??

But -- I've never been to New York -- and that will change in July.

Hubby's doing a 3 week thing in some city outside NYC in July -- so, we're going to meet in Manhattan for a weekend.

It helps that Hubby's been on a poker winning streak that will pay for the trip :).

So, if you had from Friday late-afternoon until Sunday morning in the city, in July -- what would you do?

#1 - The Met! (the Metropolitan Museum of Art, not the Opera--although they're great too)

#2 Just walking around lower Manhattan--especially Greenwich Village and TriBecCa, and including the NY Stock Exchange, the World Trade Center site, and Trinity Church

Definitely walk around. I would shop (But that's me). Hang out in Central Park.

You can't go wrong with anything really. There is so much to do.

I would hang out on the Upper West Side. Man, do I miss the Upper West Side. If you like Sushi, kit Kitaro's - I think it's on Amsterdam. Best sushi in town.

If you go to the TKTS booth in Times Square, you can get last-minute tickets for shows on Broadway -- sometimes WAY cheaper than buying ahead of time.
