Everywhere! :-) Been here before?

Staten Island Ferry is a free trip from Manhattan to Staten Island. Goes right by the Statue of Liberty. Great sunset photo op. If you actually want to go to the statue or Ellis Island, you need to book in advance, go through TSA style security, etc.

Top of the Rock, Empire State Building, for a view from above.

World Trade Center? Again advance booking needed. Or just walk by the area.

Central Park.

Metropolitan Museum of Art, American Museum of Natural History / Hayden Planetarium

New York Public Library at 42nd St.

Times Square for the tourist crowd.

South Street Seaport

Greenwich Village

The Cloisters

Brooklyn Promenade

...

The all-day hop-on / hop-off tour buses might be a way to get around and see the sights too.

Thanks for the ferry tip! :)

I have never been to NYC, but I want to plan it bit by bit, until it makes it off my Bucket List!

I would vote MOMA and The Cloisters, definitely.

It's funny, but I hadn't heard of The Cloisters before this post!

I personally would hit as many museums as possible, but that is just me. I have never been there, so I wouldn't know what to suggest; when you go, take lots of pictures so I can visit vicariously. =P

I will definitely hit one or two museums, but there is only so much I can stand (literally) in one day. If I take photos, I think I will keep to my iPhone I think.
