  • The Brooklyn Botanic Garden [bbg.org] is quite nice, and not too far from Manhattan (just across the bridge). Central Park is also worth visiting, and has some nice gardens along the upper east side (near Spanish Harlem).

    I've been to a bunch of art museums, including MoMA, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Guggenheim. The latter two are very close, so you could do both in one long day. The Guggenheim is also worth seeing for its interesting architecture. MoMA has the original Dali's Persistence of Memory, a staple of college dorm walls in poster form.

    If you're into food, there's lots of good stuff in Chinatown, which also has the virtue of being one of the dirtiest and smelliest parts of a very dirty and smelly city ;)

    If you're into books, check out The Strand [strandbooks.com]. But if you've been to Powell's in Portland, I'd say don't bother, Powell's is better.

    I have fond memories of the Natural History Musem from when I was a kid, but I haven't been there in a long time.

    I'm not sure what's playing now, but the Metropolitan Opera House and New York Philharmonic are always worthwhile, though I'm not too fond of Summer Pops type junk.
