First time in New York City — highlights?
NOTE: This is another long dormant “unfinished draft” that was originally posted on another site and now has been updated and posted.
Q: What would you recommend to do in the city for a first time visitor, and what deli would you say is the best?
A: What to do in New York City? It’s the Big Apple baby!
Start with Midtown and Lower Manhattan.
Put on your comfortable walking shoes, check the weather report, and hit the streets of NYC walking! There’s so much to see (people, places and things) and so much history on display as you walk around the city. We once walked from Central Park to Battery Park!
Visit Central Park! www.centralparknyc.org
Take a NYC Taxicab Ride!
See the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center and Plaza, Washington Square Park, SoHo, the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge, the Freedom Tower and the World Trade Center/9-11 Memorial, Wall Street and Battery Park
See the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New York Public Library and Grand Central Terminal
Visit Liberty Island and/or Ellis Island (ride the ferry, see the sights)
The world famous Carnegie Deli is closed. RIP 1937-2016
Katz’s Delicatessen (the “When Harry Met Sally” Diner)
205 East Houston Street,
on the sw corner of Houston & Ludlow on the Lower East Side
Zagat gave Katz’s a food rating of 4.5 out of 5,
and ranked the restaurant as the number one deli in NYC in 2016.
Also try Famous Original Ray’s Pizza and Zabar’s for classic NYC food experiences.
Visit Broadway and the Theater District!

See Times Square and eat at Sardi’s (make a reservation) to complete the experience!
