Artie,

You must come back to Brooklyn for an update!!

Junior's is wonderful, but if you're lazy, and inclined to stay closer to the Brooklyn Bridge, try Patsy Grimaldi's Pizza, The Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, and Jacques Torres' Chocolates. Also, if you're thirsty, cask conditioned ales can be found at the Brazen Head on Atlantic Ave. :-)

I second the Tenement museum. It's a humbling experience. Zabar's deli/grocery on the Upper West Side, as well as Artie's deli at 2290 Broadway on the Upper West Side. Yet another place to get gigantic pastrami sandwiches and great pickles. If she likes vintage clothes go to Geminola on 41 Perry St. in the West Village. That'll empty your wallet super fast. And most any of the museums are fantastic. Also, take a walk through Central Park. During the day.

A comment from Net Cotton Content readers...

From Larry:
Here are a few for you. Breakfast at Norma's at Le Parker Meridien (the best), Second Avenue Deli (no longer on 2nd Ave.), Katz's Deli on Houston (go to old Jewish neighborhoods around area). Basics: Jewish Museum, MoMA, dinosaurs at the Museum of Natural History. Museum of Television. Walking in Soho and the Village. Good celebrity sightings at Mr. Chow on 57th (expensive but great food). Meatpacking district is the new Rodeo Drive (lots of great new stores there)... "Spamalot" is a good light play. Gray's Papaya is a fave for hot dogs. If you are a piano player, the Steinway Hall (109 W 57th St, near Carnegie Hall) is cool... Little Italy is becoming Big China, so see it before it disappears. The Fulton Fish Market is pretty cool with some old tall ships parked. Carnegie Deli is, of course, a great old stand by. I also believe that the Plaza Hotel has reopened. You should see the lobby for high tea. I believe that they restored the old roof and it is beautiful.

From Ray:
Tenement Museum @ Delancy & Orchard; Katz's, for sure; Statue of Liberty; Chelsea Piers and South Street Seaport are fun; and, of course, Sammy's Roumanian Steakhouse!

From Marty:
Absolutely the Tenement Museum. It is awesome, particularly AFTER a visit to Ellis Island so that you can see where people went once they were let in; Ellen's Stardust Diner on 51st and Broadway - loud but awesome performances by the servers while you eat; and BILLY ELLIOTT!!! We loved it as much as Wicked. We haven't stopped singing the songs since we saw it in July.
