Flying in tomorrow and leaving the 1st.

Looking for some additional "must see" stuff. We've got plenty of museums and other main attractions, but I'm curious if anyone has some out of the way places to visit.

Restaurants, shops, etc.

Go to Times Square and keep looking up at all the tall buildings.

And the Sex Museum. That place is a hoot.

The George Washington Bridge Bus Station is a very historical place, Mr. Racist.

My apologies. It's a typical smart ass remark around these parts.

Not my first time, but I haven't been since I lived in NJ in 1st/2nd grade.

We've got the hack stuff on the list.

What is there to do in Chinatown?

Not much. Used to be good for electronics before the internet. If you want good Chinese food hit up Grand Sechuan on St. Marks between 2nd and 3rd. Fucking amazing.

It's kinda touristy, but I still enjoy going to McSorley's Old Ale House. E 7th St between 2nd & 3rd Ave.

Best hot dogs in NYC!

It's downtown. I would also suggest Little Italy for dinner one night. Or you could do the Comedy Cellar which is also downtown, and the restaurant above it, The Olive Tree, is really good, so you can have dinner and check out the comedy in one stop.

Is Little Italy even still around? Chinatown was kinda taking it over last time I was there.

It is. It's a whole block of restaurants. I always go down there for the feast. I know what you're talking about though cause on the way if you're walking... there's nothing but Chinese stores and stuff, but when you turn the corner, I forget the streets, that's where all the restaurants are.

I think I've bought their Irish pale ale in the grocery store. I'll write that down.
When you go there they just serve dark or light and when you order you get 2 mugs of it per order. There's no music or anything. But it's supposedly the oldest bar in NYC.

That sounds pretty neat.

Dunno if we will have time to do the bowl game. I'm goin to be there with my parents and girlfriend, so at least 2 people won't be interested in going. If it was just my dad and I, I'd give it more consideration.

Noted on little Italy. We want to find a place to have some nice Italian. Have a restaurant suggestion? Nothing super fancy or super cheap. Moderately priced.

If you're looking for excitement, I suggest going to Harlem while dressed as a chick.
