    Lots of musical items for people or businesses into recording music. Older items can be found here for a good price. Trade-ins accepted. All the sales reps were very nice and ready to answer any question you may have. They were friendly and knowledgeable when answering questions by e-mail or phone.

    Another one of my favorite moment in NY was the chance to go to the Phantom of the Opera! It was AMAZING! If you get a chance see the show. I also saw it here in MN but, it wasn't comparable to the one I saw in NY!
    The effects are unforgetable!

    The Daily show with Jon Stewart
    Hilarious and free, so funny I would have paid $50 to see it. His warm up guy is a stand up comedian and his staff is also wonderful, they ran out of tickets (I had tickets but they over book) and when I told them we were from Louisiana the gave up the best seats in the house. Jon Stewart is a wonderful host and he talks to the audience during the breaks.

    You have to give it to the Food TV network, by adding shows like Iron Chef from Japan to it's lineup, it is the most cleverly marketed network around. Case in point, Emeril Live. Emeril is a chef from New Orleans that owns numerous resteraunts in the Big Easy and Vegas. His cooking show is like a combination of Julia Child and Arsenio Hall. It is one of the most surreal things I have ever seen. First, the show has a band that plays the occasional tune to fit the cooking mood, the energetic chef then runs around with a tough-guy persona yelling catch phrases like 'BAM!' and 'KICK IT UP A NOTCH'. The most incredible part of the show, however, is the audience. Emeril has groupies...Food groupies. Their eyes get huge, and when he starts to 'kick it up a notch', they freak out. They also seem to be incredibly enthusiastic for their favorite ingredients. He will come out and say, 'OK now I'm gonna' add some paparika..' and an audience member will scream 'Whoooooo!!! Paparika!!!!'. I saw a show last week where someone 'raised the roof' at the mention of oregano. So if you have a favorite ingredient that you don't think gets enough props, maybe you can give it some attention at a taping of Emeril.

    Go see the off broadway play called 'Tubes.' It's also referred to as the Blue Man group. It is the funnist and coolest play I've ever seen. It's mostly physical humor with printed signs shown to the audience. The 3 actors never say a word. Believe me, you won't be disappointed.
    If you want to experience really cool lights, sounds and humor, check out the play.

    Go enjoy a theatrical or musical show. There are so many choices you won't be disappointed. If you can afford to pay the full price, great! However, if you're on a budget and don't mind waiting in line go EARLY to a TKTS booth (one in Time Square and one in World Trade Center) Not all shows have discount, so check what is offered! My husband and I went to the premiere of Iceman Cometh (50% discount) and sat in the third row - right in front of the leading actor Kevin Spacey!

    Pick up a Broadway play or musical. If you go to the half-price stand in the middle of TImes Square you can usually get tickets to some great shows! Get there around noon, though, because the line is LONG.

    See a show, walk through Soho, go to one of the tall buildings: empire, world trade; Go to the Met!
    Manhattan is a great place to visit. I know it gives a lot of people anxiety going into such a big city, but you get over it pretty quickly. So much to do and see, its amazing.

    Now the guidebooks will tell you to go to Broadway and Times Square and watch some Andrew Lloyd Webber musical like Rats or something, which is fine, but why not sit in on something really good like Letterman or Saturday Night Live?

    New York is a great place to experience and experiment with theatre--make it a point to see one show per trip.
    My meetings and travel schedule made it difficult to plan too far in advance, but spontaneity has a couple merits--I saw more variety than the top billing shows, and usually got 1/2 price seats. There's a TKTS outlet at the top of the World Trade Center, which is much more convenient than the location on Broadway. Go early to avoid lines. Also, if your heart is set on a sold-out show, just go to the box office prior to the performance--there's almost always cancelled reservations at the last minute, and the seats can be great under these circumstances.

    Go to a Broadway show!! even if you don't like shows like that, you'll appreciate it...and if you don't, at least you can brag to your friends at home that you saw a show on Broadway. I recommend 'Amadeaus' and 'Les Miserables'....i don't recommend 'Phantom of the Opera''s very boring

    Broadway shows are a great evening out, although sometimes difficult to get tickets for the big shows.
