Default What would you do in NYC by yourself for 4 days?

I'm going to be in New York City all next weekend. Aside from the reason I'm going all the way across the country, to play pickup with some dudes I don't even know for a few hours, I don't have anything else set in stone for plans.

I guess I could go see Ground Zero, Coney Island park, Niketown, and Times Square. Anything else I need to check out?

Do they still have the peep shows in NYC?

where are you playing pickup?

If you wanna pick up some chicks go to Bourbon St. Bar(79th and Amsterdam) for really drunk college chicks that will do whateva...

I would just walk around try out some of the exclusive food spots, hit up Chinatown etc.

Hit up Carolines Comedy Club on Broadway...30 dollars a ticket. Paul Mooney is there

Depends on what you like, whether you want to do the more touristy things or have something special in mind. Whether it be going to Rockerfeller Center or a going to a pizza joint that also serves as a strip club. Also where in the city will you be? Manhattan?

Pizza and strip club in the same place? Where's that at? IDK where I'm staying most of the time, like I said, I have nothing planned except for hooping at LaGuardia CC that morning. It'd be cool to find somewhere outside I can get a run at too, experience New York streetball.

What kind of food is New York famous for? I'm going to need some of that; nothing pretentious like sushi rolls, but I mean like pizza or hot dogs or something.

And I want to go to the NBA Store

coney island closed down at the end of last summmer... they might still be runnin the cyclone, im not sure, havent been to the area lately. but i would imagine it wouldnt be too fun to be there alone, maybe just to look around.

definitely check out times square. a lot of stuff goin on there, maybe hit a bar or something.. u should probably check out ground zero, but dont expect much as its mostly just scaffolding right now.

eat @ some neighborhood pizza joints. if u like walkign and observing/shopping, walk around soho and chinatown/little italy which are next to eachother. ride the subways....and so on

i think itd be better if you had at least someone else with u. btw where are you comin from?

and about the peep shows, im not sure ive never been to one, but i know there arent much if any anymore, NY is a lot cleaner than it used to be regardin that stuff

Yes the Guggenheim building is impressive, but the MoMa holds much more "important" pieces. Guggenheim was a lot smaller than I imagined.

When Starface, and Primetime, and his aliases were dominating the board the **** started to get annoying. I work more too, but that's inconsequential since I am online at work all the time anyways

I'm from Oklahoma

For Basketball go to West 4th street in Manhatten, aka the Cage. They have good runs there I hear. I havent been out there yet though because I usually play indoors.
