Since moving here and trying dozens of pizza places my favs are (in order):

1. Don Antonios
2. Pauly G's
3. Adrienne's

None are the "ny style" foot long greasy cheese slices. But all of those above make a great pie.

No, not yet. I've done Lucali, and Robertas. All of which had 60+ min waits at any point I've ever checked. Lucali in particular is insane for wait times. Lucali and Roberta's were both good but not "wow I am glad I waited 2 hours". Which seems to be the case for a lot of NYC hyped places.

The three places I mentioned as my favs are also prone to long waits but at least I am in a postprandial state of bliss when I leave.

Bump....

Contemplating of going over the April extra long weekend. Getting there Friday morning and back Monday afternoon. Never been there, so the top on the list is the main tourist things. Thinking of surprising the wife as it is on her bucket list to be there during Christmas, but we are always busy somewhere else around then. So even in April is better than nothing I guess.

First question, is that even enough time to spend there and be able to do all the things? What's the best place to stay at...area wise. Close to everything etc. We rather not public transport and will cab if I have to. But I like walking as I feel that's how you see the most at a place.

Finally, must do touristy things? Book in advance? Where from? When to? And all that. I guess I will drop the idea if the time we have isn't enough and may decide to just go to Montreal or something instead, but ideally would like to check out NY.

Thanks to all.

A long weekend trip to NYC is enough to scratch most of the must see.

Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island: if you want to cheap out take the ferry to Staten Island but IMO worth going at least once.. I've been 2x

One World Observatory: haven't been here as last time I was in NYC it wasn't open yet but it's on my to do list

Top of the Rock: go one hour before sunset that way you get to see Lower Manhattan during day and night

Central Park: rent a bike for a couple of hours and ride around the park

Times Square: cool to see during the day and night, optional but I would also go watch a play

Grand Central Terminal

Brooklyn Bridge: cross it from Manhattan to Brooklyn then have lunch in one of the pizza places in Brooklyn, our favorite is Grimaldi's

there are the museums too, I've done MOMA and Guggenheim.


For accommodations if you don't want to walk alot then stay around Mid Town.
I've stayed at the Gotham Hotel and Holiday Inn Fifth Ave but now I prefer staying in Queens for the experience of taking the Subway.
Either way, your should buy the 7 day unlimited metrocard as you'll be using it extensively around NYC.
