    Sorry, the Must-Try are aplenty, I'm sure you'd be inundated with ideas. I'd suggest a place NOT to go: Hakkasan in Manhattan. Well overpriced and not authentic. Well, probably our own mistake, wanting to try some Chinese-Japanese cuisine...

    This is exactly why I posted.

    I don't want to go to some snooty upmarket restaurant that is overpriced, and not interested in Micheleon Star restaurants

    Thanks for the tip.

    thanks for tips.

    I was bitterly disappointed with Shake-Shack Atlanta, perhaps NY will be different. Many raving about this place, tried their chicken burger it was bad.

    Back in Canberra!
    Roberto's Restaurant in the Bronx. Really good Italian food. Nice to see some areas that aren't super touristy too. Try to book if you can as it's really popular. Zero Otto Nove is nearby and also very good. Can't go wrong with either

    For anyone planning a trip to New York I can certainly give you some tips, on where to eat and what to do. We packed in 4 days of walking, eating, touring and of course drinking... it been fun.
    Moment memorial experience going to see the musical Beautiful.

    For the foodies, a must

    Eataly
    Eataly NYC Downtown
    This was good and next to ground zero, also worth a visit

    Chelsea Markets
    Chelsea Market (New York City): Top Tips Before You Go (with Photos) - TripAdvisor
    Had the best meal here
    Giovanni Rana Pastificio & Cucina Restaurant in New York

    If you love fresh seafood, you wont be disappointed with Chelsea

    Carmines if you love Italian comfort food, meatballs just the way my mum made them. That was a first.
    Carmine's - 44th Street - NYC

    I did not get there, spoilt for choices, perhaps next time.
    What an amazing city, no matter what time of the day it is always buzzing.

    I lived there for a while, and just went back a few weeks ago. Favourite city in the world.

    Check out Zabars on the upper west side. Order their roast beef sandwich. Holy crap I can't stop thinking about it.

    The one I got was just a simple roast beef, tomatoes, lettuce. So good.

    Yeah Central Park would be up there. There aren't many places I don't like to hang out there. Beautiful city, the Galapagos of the modern world.

    No did not.
    What about you? What did I miss

    Went on a 6 hour walking tour which pretty much covered the most of the tourist hot spots and it was brilliant.

    Just back from another 2 weeks in New York. Walked the Highline again a number of times. The garden had grown a lot in 12 months. At the end of the Highline we visit the Whitney Gallery, well worth the visit.
    You can go down the lift at 14 Street to get to the Chelsea Market then hop back up to the Highline to walk back to New York
    We also walked the Brooklyn Bridge which is great.
    We eat at an Italian Restaurant on 8th Avenue near Penn Station. We were there last year and got a surprise when the waitress not only remembered us but even remembered what we ate!!!

    We found a big difference to last year. Far less people around The Hotel we stay at was packed last year. We had to get up early to get a table for breakfast. This year we could go at any time plus it was mainly Australians staying there whereas last year there wasn't many. Apparently Flight Centre have done a deal with them. We had booked direct through the Hilton Honors Site.
    There were a lot more people begging on the streets. Subway was less crowded. Such a great way to get around and so cheap!!
    We went to see Hamilton on Broadway. Absolutely fantastic. So well done and so professional. We really enjoyed it and have been singing the songs ever since Managed to fit in Billy Joel at Madison Sq Gardens and Ed Sheeran at TD Gardens in Boston. Both excellent concerts. Now home for a rest!!!
