Hi, Mercedes,

To add on to Marlene's answer, here are a few more places to visit:

1. Top of The Rock for sweeping views (360 degrees) of the city including a view of the Empire State Building. I like visiting just before sunset to see the how the lights light up in every building throughout the city.

2. High Line Park - an elevated public park on a historic freight rail line.

3. Stroll along the artsy buildings, shops, etc. of SoHo - grab a coffee, cocktail, and have a meal in one of the restaurants.

4. Walk or rent a CitiBike on Brooklyn Bridge to DUMBO, Brooklyn.

5. Take the 7 train, dubbed the international express, to Queens and visit the neighborhoods' authentic foods from around the world.

6. Visit Isamu Noguchi Foundation Inc in Long Island City, Queens.

7. Check out the treasures at The Morgan Library & Museum - see old manuscripts, early printed books, original music manuscripts by Beethoven etc.

8. The New York Historical Society Museum & Library - the oldest museum in NYC.

Union Square market is fun. Union Square is a fun area to explore.

Spend time walking on Madison Avenue between 50 and 59th Street.

Central Park near Belvedere Fountain is pretty.

Great ice cream shop is Serendipity 3 (Upper East Side near 60th or 61st. and Third Avenue.

Little Italy is fun and delicious for a meal at lunch or dinner.

See a Broadway show.  Lincoln Center Plaza has several shows and are always the best of the best. 

Ride one of the tall ships around the harbor or ride on the St. George Terminal. Staten Island Ferry is very inexpensive.

The American Museum of Natural History or the Whitney Museum are my favorites.

The International Center of Photography Museum is also very interesting.

Blue Man Group show. Very cool.

My favorite restaurants are VongDanielthe modernPeking Duck House All very expensive but delicious. Very expensive.
