I don't deny that there should be priests to remind men that they will one day die. I only say it is necessary to have another kind of priests, called poets, to remind men that they are not dead yet. - G. K. Chesterton

Of all the huge tourist traps, I'd most recommend The Circle Line. It's just a boat ride around Manhattan, but it's a three-hour tour that shows you most of the cool sites (if only by a distance).

I would also suggest finding a nice jazz club and taking the performance in. And the Murray Hill section (29th to 34th streets and 3rd ave) have some exceptional restaurants with decent prices.

Of all the museums, sure, do the Met. But the best kept secret is "The Frick", down the street... a small little home converted into a museum.

Shows? Right now the buzz is surrounding _Xanadu_.
