some friends and I are going to NYC for 3 days this december. I know it's not much time especially with all the things you can do there but I would really appreciate any suggestions. I really wanna see the city so I can decide if I wanna live there or not in the future. Anyway, so please post suggestions of fun stuff to do, museums, shopping places, restaurants and anything you can think of. Thanks in advance :cutesy:

hole-in-the-wall Japanese restaurants on St. Mark's Place
Barneys New York on Madison
Meatpacking for clubs
Nolita/Soho for shopping

It really depends on your tastes/interests/budget. Do you have friends who are from NY or live in NY?

Totally agree but I would add the:
  1. Empire State building!
  2. Tour of the city- especially the night one!

it sounds bizarre, but my favorite place in NYC is the subway. It makes me feel so connected to the world, it's really wierd and unexplainable but I adore it!!

East coast weather is totally unpredictable that time of year. Sometimes it's below freezing, sometimes it's warm enough that you don't need a coat. Check weather.com before you leave and make sure to bring layers! It will probably be in 40's, but there's no telling...

You can find I :heart: NY shirts and other souvenirs on the street.

As for sights, you HAVE to go to Rockefeller Center and see the tree! You can ice skate there, too. The atmosphere around Rockefeller Center at Xmas time is like magic IMO! The museums in NYC are spectacular, too. My favorites are the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Natural History. Another fun thing to do is go to show tapings. David Letterman, Martha Stewart, Rachael Ray and others film their shows there & you can get tickets to be in the audience.

Have fun!!!

I'm actually scared about this part. It's just that you see stuff on tv :shrugs: Is it easy to navigate though? Any tips on what to remember? or what I must know in going around nyc with subways? thanks!
