There are quite a few ferries these days. I've taken this one a few times: East River Ferry Route & Schedule | NYC Ferry Service
There's always the Staten Island Ferry, of course. Then turn around and go back - no reason to actually go into Staten Island
Good Italian place (run by an Albanian, of course...this is very common in NY) with reasonable prices and a real neighborhood sort of feel: Sam's Place, 39th St between Lex and 3rd. Sam’s Place - Murray Hill - New York, NY Massimo is a real shmoozer.
Thanks for making me laugh out loud in a quiet office!
There's also a pretty good Thai place just around B&H... Thai Select. North of B&H like 2 blocks. On 9th Ave between 36 and 37 streets.
ive eaten at:
Ess a bagel
Dessert at Jean George Terrace/Nougatine (trump trigger warning)
After Dinner stuff: Limoni at Rockefeller, Oceana at Rockefeller, Chikalicious, Max Brenner Chocolate
Trump Trigger Warning isn't that the whole city?! I just figured I'd avoid politics altogether. But hey I could always pick up a "make America great again" hat and stir the pot
Well that place just happens to be in one of his buildings is all.
Don't forget your girlfriend. What does she like to do? A Broadway show? Jazz in Greenwich Village. The Metropolitan Museum of Art? (Great spot to photograph performers doing street performances in front). Ask her. Remember, you can get street shots in NYC everywhere. And have a wonderful time. New Yorkers are great.
You might also want to hit up the International Center of Photography: International Center of Photography
There's also a great little place to eat somewhere around there, but for the life of me, I can't remember the name right now. I'll figure it out. Probably around 3am.
(edit: oops, wrong link. Fixed it.)
--The Occulus (inside and out). It's superb.
--9-11 Memorial (you mentioned the museum)...on the birthdays of the fallen, they place a white rose next to the name...it makes a powerful shot with the reflection in the black marble.
--The Guggenheim. You aren't allowed to take pictures past the first floor. But the first floor looking up (with a real wide angle) plus the outside is outstanding.
--MOMA (lots of photo friendly exhibits, I got some great results internally there).
I go to NYC a lot with my kids... my hit list...I added time frames for the time sensitive attractions...
China Town in the morning/ lunch
Little Italy at night
Coney Island/ Nathans beach for lunch (the dogs they sell there are not the ones at your local food store)
Central Park (anytime)
Museum of Natural History (must)
Ellis Island/ Statue of Liberty
Wall Street Bull pic
Lots of walking and subway rides...I love NYC.
Long Island is also killer BTW.
Screw those camera stores, I hate them, my dad used to drag me there when I was little...uhhh.
Please keep politics off the main forums. If you want to go political you can do so in the Subscribers Forum. Thanks.
