dinner at the Gramercy Tavern - by far the BEST restaurant we've ever been too - fabulous! and have cocktails at the waldorf - cosmopolitan al a SATC!

Shopping at 5th Ave just doesn't get any better but Greenwich Village is lovely to wander around.

Very jealous - you'll have a ball!

Helicopter ride over Manhattan? Friends of mine where there when NYC had the bad snow storm a few weeks ago - said the flight was amazing.

Sundowners in the bar at the Rainbow Grill at the Rockefeller Center - totally fab

Restaurants, recently went to Lupa (excellent italian, need to book well in advance) and Gotham Bar & Grill (fab too)

We stayed recently at Second Home on Second Avenue (can send you pix as ones on website crap). It was a massive apartment in teh East Village 3 blocks Union Sq, really a great place. Massive bedroom and living room, bathroom a bit crap (ie only shower) rather shabby chic but for the space is the best bargain in nyc. $180 a night. It is called the Modern Suite. I wouldn't go for any of the other rooms.
