Oh Sizz, you cannnot not visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art! The collection of old-world art and historical relics is simply mind-blowing. It's already right by Central Park anyway. You'll have to reserve at least half a day for this though, better if a whole day. Then if you have more time, the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) as well!

sizz, sorry i haven't gotten back to you on this sooner. i'll pm you the names of a few hotels this afternoon. i'll also give you my work # in case you want a tour of cbs or the letterman studios. if you know the dates, i'll look into tickets for the show, too.

i just glanced over everyone's posts (way to go mish!), so i hope i'm not just repeating anything. i think you'll want to stay in the in the theater district of midtown, roughly in the 40's on the west side, near broadway or 8th ave..

btw, as stated before, little italy is kinda hard to find. it's been overrun by chinatown. but grand and mott streets north of canal still has a small section, and there are a few decent restaurants left. nothing great, and it's a little overpriced, but it's something to do.

ok, well, i have to go warn the city that you're coming...

Sizz..... I'm going to be in Chicago from the 6th to the 15th of April, but if I'm in town while you're here, I'd be glad to meet you for dinner at my favorite little village spot (Spanish) that always pleases and doesn't break the bank.... let me know!

Haven't been in a long while but isn't Ferraro's still in little Italy? on Grand, I believe. If it's there they have Great Italian Pastry!
And please tell me Vincent's isn't gone. Love their shrimp and hot sauce. I know they were selling the sauce in jars but it doesn't even come close to having it there.

Ferrara's is still there, as far as I know. Was this summer.

Ferrara's is a good reason to go to Little Italy, for sure.

Ferrara's is "good," imo, but FAR better are both Veniero's on East 11th Street and Bruno Bakery on LaGuardia and Bleecker have better Italian pastries.

I just like the look of Ferrara's.

It reminds me of Italy. Specifically a place in Milan near the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele.
