- stay more than 3 days;
- buy a subway pass if you stay for a longer period of time ($24 for a 7-day pass);
- go to a musical at Broadway, you can easily book it ahead online through
- pay attention to long waiting lines at the ferry to Statue of Liberty /
Ellis Island
- and the Empire State Building;
- wine and/or dine at one of the nice, cozy restaurants in Greenwich Village;
- walk all the way through Central Park, it is a relaxing walk in the middle of this
- busy city;
- take a cab across the Brooklyn Bridge and walk back;
- visit one of the many museums, we
enjoyed the huge American Museum of
- Natural History (entrance fee $15).

- forget good shoes, NY is easy by cab or subway but a lot of fun by foot as well;
forget your Starbucks coffee!
- shop till you drop, customs will find and fine you, especially if you have electronic
- devices (we got checked in Amsterdam, fortunately we didn't buy that much).
