    Hang out in Times Square....

    Favorite thing: Hang out in Times Square. After you hit all the shops and restaraunts and take all your pictures of the ad's just stand on the island that splits Broadway at 43rd street and watch it all happen!! And check out the HOT cops!!!

    Fondest memory: My favorite thing was just walking around with my best friend, bundled up as much as we could be since it was 9 degrees and stopping in Starbucks every couple blocks to get warm. I always miss the subways!!! I miss not having to drive everyday, and just people watching and seeing how different we all are.

    Fondest memory: Let's admit it: New York City is intense! Dazzling neon lights flash at Times Sqaure; the theaters are world class; the museums have a collection Sotheby's and Christie drool for; the nightlife reaches till dawn; the locals have an air of confidence that seems impenetrable and above all she proved to be one of the earliest cities to embrace multicultural harmony.

    Favorite thing: The very cool place in New York City it's surely Time Squares. It's very cool to be there because there's a lot of pepole and tourist, and... you know.. It's NEW YORK.

    Fondest memory: I don't have very a BEST moment, but just to walk in Manhattan and in Downtown.. it's very cool.

    Favorite thing: Definitely visit Times Square. Always busy, this is the heart of the city, filled with gigantic TV screens and huge advertisements that all beacon for your attention. Most of the major TV networks have offices here and also is home for the NASDAQ exchange.

    Favorite thing: i would take that person to times square and the wall street areas for they represent the megapower of this country...

    Fondest memory: what i miss the most when away from new york is the feeling of freedom of movement. nobody cares about who you are. you don't know who's who. there are so many places to go to, etc...

    by Sanet Written Aug 25, 2002

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Because the Big Apple is so overwhelming at first I will definately recommend a hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour of the city as well as a circle line cruise to get yourself orientated

    Fondest memory: Time Square at night! The atmosphere is something you cannot describe. Thousands of people just everywhere with lights all around. Really an amazing sight.

    The Inimitable Times Square!

    by paulapes Updated Aug 7, 2007

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I love everything about Manhattan! It's sort of like being in Rome: millions of people, crazy traffic, and too much to see! One of the cool things was Times Square and all of those huge advertising boards and video signs--won't find any of those in Rhode Island :o) That's a pic of Times Square.

    Fondest memory: Seeing the Metropolitan Museum of Art on 5th Avenue--then I REALLY know I'm in NYC.

    Favorite thing: Check out Times Square - its awesome
    Check out 5th Avenue for the shops such as Tiffany and Co, Banana Republic, Fao Schwartz etc

    Fondest memory: Tiffany and Co - reminded me of Breakfast at Tiffany's with Audrey Hepburn which happens to be one of my favourite films.

    Favorite thing: You have to go to TIMES SQUARE at night!!..
    It's BEAUTIFUL and exciting!, to Central Park which is the biggest (not sure if it's the only!) park in Manhattan, to the Empire State, Ellis Island, Statu of Liberty of course, Broadway, SOOO many things!! you'll never get bored!

    Fondest memory: In NYC there is people from everywhere... i think that's what i miss the most.. meeting so many different people every single day and learning a part their cultures. All in the same spot.

    Favorite thing: New York offers more than just about any other city I can think of, so it's very hard to pin down one particular thing. If you're only there for a day, though, I'd do a circle trip around Manhatten Island. It gives you a good sense of the scale of the place. And if you're there at night, don't miss Times Square (See photo)

    Big City Highlights

    by wheretonext... Written Oct 26, 2011

    Favorite thing: To all who gave advice, thank you !! We have returned after having a fabulous visit to a most magical city. All of your advice was taken and utilized accordingly. Thank you, Thank you!

    1. "Taxi" from LGA to Manhatten/Times Square!! No question.....

    2. For those who need cushion on their feet - tennis shoes you would enjoy! NO Flip Flops...in the Fall. Too much construction and the trash bags do sit on the sidewalks for pick up... Just saying... (like the movies)

    3. Take the tours in early morning! (we did and then saw the lines scheduled for 1pm tours... Yikes!)

    4. People ARE friendly.

    5. Must see a Broadway show and/or Musical. "Wicked" was phenominal... Puts a new twist on The Wizard of Oz.

    6. Always check with folks on "Virtual Tourist" to get it straight!!

    Thanks again....

    Fondest memory: The Best Italian Atmosphere, Food and Personal Touch Restaurant in Manhatten:

    ** Da Marino Ristorante Italiano Wine Bar ** on the sidewalk just down from Crowne Plaza.

    You don't have to be "all" dressed up.... sassy casual (and some did wear blue jeans)... So relaxing but upbeat Piano Bar... Fan Dang Tastic!! You will NOT be disappointed....

    I now miss the Hustle Bustle of the big city... Horns honking, taxi's screeching and people scurring... Enjoyed every moment...

    by HotelMan Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: visit Times Square, Chinatown, Little Italy, Soho, & Broadway. The buildings, people, and the city's energy are all incredible. There are no words to describe New York City adequately. It's the most exciting place in the world!

    Fondest memory: Flying by the Statue of Liberty.

    Walk around time square...

    by biljah Written Mar 3, 2003

    Favorite thing: One of the best things about NY is walking around time square in the summer. There's no place in the world like New York! It's wild it's crazy, and best of all it's fun.

    Fondest memory: The view in time square... it's pretty much a concreate jungle with the exotic animals being huge screens and flashing lights evry where you look!!!

    Hang out around Time Square,...

    by ronco4704 Written Aug 26, 2002

    Favorite thing: Hang out around Time Square, just to watch the people. Ride the subways. Very safe during regular hours. I pick up a subway map at the ticket booth. If I look at it while riding the train I always have New Yorkers asking for directions. Great way to meet people casually.

    Fondest memory: The theater (when I can afford it). I have never seen a really bad show, and a lot of really great shows over the last 15 years.

    Love the neon

    by HispanicYob Written May 25, 2006

    Favorite thing: I can't get enough of just people watching and absorbing all the advertising signs in one of New York City's busiest areas. It's a whole other world on itself. Everything's in relative walking distance as well.

    Fondest memory: My fondest memory would have to be smelling the foods of the NYC delis as I'd walk by. Also the Brooklyn accents.
