Hmm...so after you go to New York for a few days, you're then going to New York for another 10 days? Oh, I get it, you're going to New York STATE for a few days, but then going to New York, New York for 10 days.

Must sees would include all the "normal" touristy things, Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Chrysler Building, Ground Zero (unless you're Ahmadinejad they'll let you visit) etc. If you like TV, watching a taping of The Late Show is lots of fun, contact CBS NOW to try and get tickets. Central Park, the theatre district, Washington Square, the ports, 5th Avenue, Rockefeller Center, the ice rink, the museums (MOMA is a big attraction), Greenwich Village, man, ten days is not enough.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

Eh no just typed very badly. Just NYC. Thanks for the help though. Not sure where I am staying in NYC yet. Either Brooklyn by the bridge (DUNBO?) or Greenwich Village. Looking forward to both LA and NYC. Having a day or so in Chicago as well.

I got loaded at the White Horse Tavern in Greenwich Village, in a vain attempt to follow in Dylan Thomas' soggy shoes. Yeah, I recommend the White Horse, and lots of other stuff I don't remember...

That's the type of thing I'm after. I want to do the tourist thing but also want to do a bit of "real" New York.

McCarthys and Dempseys are two of the best Irish Pubs. I have only been thrown out of McCarthy's.

For the best NY Steak, Gallagher's Steak House on 52nd off Broadway is great. Victors, just down the street is great steak with a Cubano flair.
Gallagher's Steak House

Trattoria Spaghetto 228 Bleecker St in Greenwich Village is absolutely great Italian. They are CASH ONLY.

Across the street from Washington Park and Italian Ice after your meal. People watch in the park. You will see EVERYTHING in that area. Jazz and Rock clubs that have been around for 50 or more years. This is the 10 block area that is the arts center and heart of the city.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

If it is, pray tell, a sad benighted nation, why would you waste your effort and time to visit this sad nation when you could expend your resources, say, in Iraq?
