You definitely need to check out the biggest building in Queens. It is called the Citibank building and she's a beaut.

You can go see The Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, The New Yankee Stadium, The Old Yankee Stadium, Citi Field, Times Square, WWF New York(might not exist anymore).

There's plenty to see here.

I believe they closed it after people caught wind of it. I heard there were specials like two pies + a lap dance for $25 and what not. I never got to experience it though cause I heard of it when I was living out in Illinois.

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.

You could try going to Hell's Kitchen for different types of food. NY pizza is always great. Personally, I love St. Mark's place myself for the varying types of food and how cheap it is.

And I want to go to the NBA Store

It's a decent experience but wears out fast. But sometimes they'll have a NBA player there signing autographs. My friends were there when Dwyane Wade was there.

I've never street balled in NYC though, but I have a few friends who said that they like to play at "the Cage" on West 4th street in Greenwich.

If you're over 21 just hit the clubs up 28th on the westside has a bunch of spots. I know Saturday Night Live at BB Kings. M2, Guesthouse, 1OAK are also good options. If you want more of a touristy thing the ESPNZone in Times Square. You could go up to the Rucker to watch some ball. Or just hit up the West Village to see an eclectic group of people. If you're into the whole hipster scene you can hit up Williamsburg, Brooklyn. But there's just a lot of things to do in NYC. Just have a good time and try to pace yourself. People get worn out the first day and are done the rest of the trip.

Five Guys is sick. So damn good, whatever toppings you wants basically on a burger and cheap too. Their fries are good as hell too and they PACK your bag with em.

I'm almost certain that Five Guys imbues their meat with ambrosia. Should you have the chance, order the bacon dog. It's one of those things that everyone should experiment with at least once in their life. Kind of like opium.
