I have a lot of friends who live there and have been a few times. Here are a few tips I have:

-cabs can be very expensive, if you're not too scared take the subway.

-see some of the tourist stuff: Empire State Bldg, Statue of liberty, a museum you like, etc.

-Don't expect ANYONE to speak english

-Wherever you stay go over your plans with the conciege, a lot of times they can help you with coupons, VIP stuff, etc.

-Whatever you would normally budget for meals, activities, etc. just go ahead and double it.

NYC is a wonderful experience. I can handle it for a day or two at most. I don't like the smell in my hair or the noise that seems to stick in my head if I am there longer.

A cruise is another choice, but if you've never done NYC, I would do that!!!!

Broadway shows, shopping, the waterfront... It's fabulous!!

OH MY We LOVED NYC! I cannot wait to go back one day. We even took Avery at 13 months old and survived! We took the subway EVERYWHERE and walked. I totally would agree about figure out your "spending money and eating money" and double it... or triple it.

TOTALLY WORTH IT.... I'd go to NYC over a cruise again...
