At one time we had an apartment in NY at W 34th St. as it was central to our customers. It sure beat having to stay at hotels as I could arrive whenever I wanted and not be contingent on the hrs of a hotel check in. Very convenient. I love NY. So much to see and so many good places to visit!! ALIVE!!

The FRICK! http://www.frick.org/visit It's a house, built around turn of the century, taking up a full block next to Central Park with the family's fabulous Art Collection. Absolute Magic!

Cathedral of St. John in Harlem http://www.harlemonestop.com/organization.php?id=275 is also fabulous if time allows.

Also - Chinatown for food and great decorative accents!

If you're going, check out 1/2 price theater tickets the day of the show at TKTS TKTS (the line is long, but it only takes about an hour) - second location on Wall St. has a very short line if you're staying anywhere near.

Thanks so much for this post! Great ideas and it so helpful to have the address, where and how to enter some of the more obscure sites, and fantastic array of not so common sites!
