|Subject: Re: New York City in August|
I'd be more than happy to make suggestions, but there's too much to see, do and experience in NY to answer a question like that. I don't know if you're "poor" students or retired CEO's....see what I mean?
In general, NY is a walking city, so the best thing is to wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk walk walk and see the neighborhoods.
The Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) has recently re-opened after a renovation that had it shut for a few years. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is a "must see" in my book.
Walking through the village, soho and meatpacking district with stops for food, wine and shopping is always great, no matter what your age, budget or taste. Little Italy and Chinatown are fun to walk through. Have lunch or dinner in Chinatown and then dessert in Little Italy.
Central Park is wonderful to walk through.
