Hello Buard,

Since you asked about things "besides the main visits", I'll tell you a few of my favorites.

I heartily recommend the Tenement Museum 97 Orchard Street, in the lower east side. This 1860's building is set up to reflect the various immigrant groups the settled in that area throughout the years. Each apartment is setup to reflect immigrants of different origins, and costumed actors recreate the day to day lives of these people. The ground floor is set up as a business from the past. There are walking tours of the neighborhood, as well as various events throughout the year.

If you are looking for an authentic New York dining experience consider eating a Katz's Deli.  It is Located on the corner of Houston and Ludlow. Open since 1888, it's one of the last real delicatessens in New York City. If you've ever seen the film "When Harry Met Sally", it's where Meg Ryan's famous scene was filmed. It still serves the best Pastrami, anywhere!

For afterhours relaxation I’d recommend McSorley's Old Ale House, at 15 E. 7th Street in the east village, or Pete's Tavern. Both claim to be the oldest pub in New York.

McSorley's was the last of the "men only" bars in New York. Women weren't allowed in until August of 1970, and that was a result of legal action taken against them. It is said that nothing has been removed from the walls since 1910.

Happy Travels!
