theren are so many things to do in NY. different cuisine, many shops, art, shows and just too much to write here. you will have the time of your life in NY. :)
Let's play who can write the faguest question, giving no real clue about your intentions. Like are you shopping for a house? Pet mice? Hamburgers. Give some clues.
I was born and raised there.
Most of all DO Not go to the Chain restaurants to eat!
Grimaldis in Brooklyn then go to little italy... and china town areas, then all around every small family owned pizza places, all along the shores, great seafood, Go to Katz Deli, in lower manhattan for the best Deli, I recommend the Pastrami on Rye!
Pizza Hut, Dominoes Pizza, McDonalds and all other Fast Food Places EXCEPT NATHAN'S, Go to Nathan's...Best hot dogs!
Then mostly...eat the italian! it's tons better than what you have over there! Also the Deli, like Katz'z Deli, Stage coach deli, Carnagie Deli...you don't have the top notch quality over in England, trust me.
Macy's, Stage Deli
It is best to shop at the airline and get a plane ticket out of there. If you have money to burn, the mob will be happy to collect your funds whether it be by legal or illegal sales.
New York City or just anywhere in New York State??
