Here are a few more to consider: Not sure they still do this, but the Laser Rock shows at the Planetarium used to be awesome; Empire State Building observation deck; Central Park Zoo; 9/11 memorial; Circle Line cruise around Manhattan; St Patrick Cathedral; Metropolitan Opera; walk down 5th Ave; South Street Seaport.

Doing things today that others won't, to do things tomorrow that others can't. Of course I'm referring to workouts, not robbing banks.

Thanks for all the suggestions. We had an awesome time in New York (in spite of the best efforts of Delta who gave us a 6 hour flight delay).

The Circle Line boat trip around Manhattan was excellent, as was the Met and MOMA was good although the photography section we wanted to see was closed on the day we visited (we passed on the Natural History Museum as the kids were museumed out by the time we got to NY), Central Park was very pleasant, a couple of Broadway shows (wish we could get more high quality live theatre out here) and the Empire State Building was impressive. We left wishing we could have spent a couple more days.

Budgeting is a skill practised by people who are bad at politics.
