Question



I'm going to New York in the near future. And I get to plan what the family is doing. Any ideas?

I want to go to the metropolitan museum of art because I didn't get to last time.I also really want to see HAIR but for some strange reason the parents aren't into the idea of standing in a line for a few hours getting tickets and watching hippies dance around.


So any shops/things to do would be hugely appreciated.

For cheap shopping go to Uniqlo and Mango (located in Soho). Also the Swatch store is VERY cool! Erm...Central Park is fun, and definetly see the MoMa (though beware of crowds!). That sounds like much much much fun!

you should definitely go to a show. If you go to the Marriot in times square there's a booth where you can purchase tickets for like 1/2 off. I saw Hairspray last time and it was great. Canal St is great for knockoffs it's by NYU and shopping I usually just walk up 5th or broadway (stopping for Jamba Juice of course) it's my favorite city I hope you have a blast!

Well what are you thinking about in terms price range? I think it's funny that people come to shop in NY, but we have the same stuff that everyone else has [even if it's not at their prada store, it's at their neimans] I would go to Saks/Bergdorfs because the sales are still pretty good. I would go to Roosevelt Island because the view is so different from what everyone always sees and it's so not crowded at all. I'm also really obsessed with going to the Natural History Museum because I haven't been since I was a little kid. I recommend eating Pinkberry if you don't have it, shopping at Reiss, checking out store windows, and going to little random parks in the finical district. As well as checking out the waterfall installation and going to the Chelsea Piers.

That should keep you busy for a few days.

central park is a lot fun, good people & dog watching

serindipity's frozen hot cocoa is amazing!

shun lee is a pricey, but fantastic chinese food restaurant, they also have a cafe like right next door to the restaurant which is cheaper

i prefer the MOMA to the MET, check it out!

A Bway show would be fun. Also, check out the Museum of Modern Art. It happens to be near the 5th Ave. shopping mecca so you'll want to go there too of course! And head down to Soho for lunch al fresco and galley-hopping.
There are lots of free concerts in Central Park and such, so look at New York mag online and see what's going on during your stay! Enjoy!!

Go see not only Broadway but as many independent theater companies as possible....and try to get into the local dance scene as well. I wish that I could go to New York too seeing as the last time I went I was nine and thought that American Girl dolls were the greatest things on the planet, so I spent the entire time at the American Girl Place. Have an awesome trip!

Check out my friend Evan's vintage store called Frock on Orchard Street between Stanton and Rivington. Tell him WendyB sent you. Across the street from him is another cool vintage place called Hairy Mary's.
