Where to start???

Hi ... I arrived yesterday afternoon 

It's now 6.30 Weds morning & my mind is overloaded with "what to do first" 

Would love over the next 6 days to do the usual Empire State, Ground Zero, Central Park, Broadway show, Staten Island, Statue of Liberty, Typical American Diner, etc etc but really don't know where to start ... Any info gratefully appreciated 😘

I would start from typical tourist places, you want to hit the spots that will get crazy on the weekend.

E.g. One World Trade CenterEmpire State Bldg9/11 Memorial etc.

On the weekend if you want to see New York life, you can hit Central ParkSoHo.

  1. One World Trade Center (attraction)
  2. Empire State Bldg (attraction)
  3. 9/11 Memorial (attraction)

If you get decent weather, take a walk in High Line Park -- a reclaimed elevated rail line on the West Side. There will be other public spaces like this in other cities, but this is the original. 

If you're having dinner in the theater district, I like Osteria al Doge. Certainly won't be as crowded as some of the more touristy Italian places in the neighborhood.

9/11 Memorial is a must! the tickets are assigned an entry time so go to the box office when you first get there and allow yourself a few hours to walk the entire museum.

It looks like you have a great list of ideas to start. If you have not done so already, Look out for one of the NYC City Passes that will provide you with discount tickets on multiple attractions. Definitely add a museum or two to your list or wander the galleries in SoHo If you like classics, go to The Metropolitan Museum of Art If you like more contemporary art, go to Museum of Modern Art

Crystal has some great suggestions, but be careful not to pack too much into one day. Also check the weather to help you decide when indoor attractions may be better than outdoor options. If you don't care what Broadway show you see, check out the TKTS Times Squarebooth to get discounted same-day tickets. 

The Statue of Liberty crown is likely sold out, but go to their website to double check. It's an amazing experience. Good luck and have fun!

A nice way to see the Statue of Liberty is to take the Staten Island Ferry out of Lower Manhattan South Street Seaport. You'll also see a couple of nice views of some bridges from a perspective you wouldn't Normally.

If you're feeling like you'd like a walk, you can walk right over the Brooklyn Bridge which is just a short walk from where you'll get off the Ferry. Once on the Brooklyn side you can take a quick dip into DUMBO which is full of cool little shops, bars, and restaurants.

If you're tired, and want to get back to the hotel, you're a quick ride home on the F train back to Times Square.
