The street festivals usually start up again by that time, too! Usually, a couple of blocks will be closed off to vehicular traffic and vendors of all kinds set up for business. Great street food, great bargins (some garbage, but you have to have a sharp eye) and a great way to people watch!

Start checking out Time Out New York a couple of weeks before you get here so you'll have an idea of what is happening, especially during the week of your visit. When you get here, pick up a copy at any newsstand.

So its more of a pastry place then? I was thinking it served entrees. Where should I go for great affordable Italian entrees (lunch or dinner)?

See Jersey boys if you can get tickets

Frick Museum - located on Central Park. It's a mansion from the heyday of the big time financiers and it has a great art collection. Not as overwhelming as the others.

Ellis Island - 1/2 day
Harbor Cruise - do this early on your trip, gives you a good overview of Manhattan, they had a really good guy doing the talkiing too.

NY Public Library

Dean & Deluca in SOHO - fabulous gourmet store don't miss it

Rue 57 - eat lunch there, great food & atmosphere - around the corner from the Plaza (which by the way is closed right now)

Union Square Cafe - eat at the bar
Chez Josephine - fabulous food - go after or before theater
Shop at Bloomingdale's
window shop at Bergdorf-Goodman & Tiffany's
St. Patrick's Catheredral - near Waldorf Astoria

Have a martini at the Rainbow room

We are going in late March. I was just there in November and can't get enough of it. We will be staying near Central Park

Thanks for the tips Barbara. Do you mind me asking where you have stayed and will be staying?

Looks like we'll be going sometime during the week of March 18th.......narrowing it down and so far its leaning towards the 18th to the 21st.

Is Jersey Boys on Broadway? I want to see The Producers but need to recheck to see if its still playing.

We have stayed at the Hyatt (Grand Terminal), Waldorf Astoria, The Plaza (closed for renovation) they will open in a year or so with not many rooms they will be condos now a shame I think. The Peninsula - fabulous location and hotel, but pricey. The W is another my daughter stayed there - there's more than one in NY I think one is where you are talking about staying.

Jersey boys is on Broadway - the story of the group The Four Seasons, right out of my era.

I'm sure I'd like that one. I'm going to go look at it now online.

Thanks for the advice abj I'll look online at that one too.
