Just move your ass like you belong here and well get along just fine...and you'll get to enjoy the greatest city in the world. Have a great trip, be safe...and have fun!!!
We have the same problem here in Cali but only in Costco's and Home Depot's.
Walking and weaving around them? Try maneuvering shopping carts size of a Hummer around them for once! I am not sure why most people visiting for the first time insist on bringing 3 generations of their immediate family to these shops

Yeah, Penn Station is a real pain in the ass at peak hours.

" Serving 600,000 passengers a day (compared to 140,000 across town at Grand Central Terminal) at a rate of up to a thousand every 90 seconds,[1] it is the busiest passenger transportation facility in the United States[2] and by far the busiest train station in North America."

We're going for a week, so should get the chance to do a lot. Just wanted to hear your opinions on "must see" sights. Staying beside central park near the Carnegie Hall area, so I will be pretty central.

Also, as this is my first trip to the States, any do's / don'ts / good advice?

Can't wait to go now, It's somewhere I've wanted to go for years, and it's costing a lot of money, but I know it will be worth it!!!

Oh yeah, and just in case you guys are at a loose end, a chauffeur driven Vishnu tuned 335i from JFK to Manhattan wouldn't go amiss... lol

Totally excited !!!
Mr chows on e 57th

2nd Ave deli on e 33rd

Wolfgangs steakhouse *****33rd & Park

New York City is cool city. I remember going there in 1996. I was lucky to go up to the very top outside of the World Trade Centre. New Yorkers City residents were actually very friendly.

I'll rank it as one of the coolest cities in North America.

Garage List
Dont stay up till 6 in the morning partying at Korea town, my friends friend got stabbed by a dirty beaner for no apparent reason.

but other than that, its a pretty safe place to be, just dont pull out your wad of cash in front of everybody, please Please PLEASE don't stand in the middle of th sidewalk trying to take pictures of the buildings or whatever may tickle your fansy, step out to the street or end of the sidewalk, I really hate it when people are blocking the way, esp when they are in a big group trying to read a map.. for fucks sake do it in the starbucks or on the side...

Try looking on www.yelp.com they have some good reviews and you can find just about anything there,

(It's just less crazy, younger, and better bars/restaurants.)

-Times Sq = Just a madhouse of tourists. Do the obligatory walk around, but don't eat there.

-Places to eat...
--'Shake Shack' (Madison Ave & 23rd St. in Madison Sq Park). One of the best burgers in the city, and it's a cool place to sit outside and eat a burger in the park. But the line is crazy from like 2pm--8pm, so expect to wait. Plus it's kinda central, so you would walk around the area and eat there.

--'Dinosaur BBQ' (West 131st & 12th Ave). IMO best ribs in the city. It's kinda up towards Harlem, so there isn't much else around. But if you want good ribs, go there.

--'Sushi Samba' (Two locations, 7th Ave & Bleeker, OR 20th and Park Ave.) Good Sushi and all that if you're into it.



*http://newyork.citysearch.com/ Pretty good site for anything in NY (Bars, Clubs, Restaurants... just make sure to read user reviews, they're pretty accurate.)
*http://nymag.com/ Good site with a lot of good reviews.
*Corner Bistro sucks.
shake shack moved it's not a shack anymore lol
