Hello. First time poster here - longtime ABB fan. Three of us from down south bought tickets, booked flights, and reserved a hotel room for the 25th and 26th. Rather than eating non-refundable flights and room - looks right now like we are coming to NYC tomorrow and leaving on Thursday. My question is - do any of you NYC folks have suggestions for live music/ club shows on those dates? We are all ABB fanatics but have pretty broad musical tastes. Thanks in advance.

Los Lonely Boys are underrated, they put on a great live show, not approaching the ABB by any stretch of the imagination, but a good option for those dates.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is a world class museum. People travel from all over the world to visit. When you walk in you will see a "suggested admission" fee of $25. The admissions are donation based. You can give them $1 and you will get your ticket. No one will question the amount you choose to donate. If you can give more, please do. I've maintained a membership for years and know the museum is certainly worth a $25 fee. However, it is one of the best ways to spend time in NYC, especially if you need a break from other high prices.

Another cool, although some folks may think corny, attraction is the Circle Line tour. The full island cruise costs $39. You will circle the entire island of Manhattan. It takes about 2 1/2 hours. The bridges and architecture are great. Plus, you really get an idea of the size and scope of the Island.

Central Park is free as is walking the neighborhoods. Not much cooler to do in the world.

To add to the Met suggestion-- they currently have an AWESOME exhibit on historical Martin guitars from the 1800's and early 1900's that is really worth checking out if you are a guitar fan. Went to it about a month ago, but I believe it is running for a while

Just explore NYC instead of spending your time in bars and music clubs.

Lots of things to do and places to see.

NYC Police and Fire museums are small, but worth it.

The Statue of Liberty, 9/11 Memorial (need tickets in advance).

Visit Wall Street (there is a small financial museum there too).

You can go to top of Rockefeller Center or the Empire State Building. I think Top of the Rock is better because you can see Central Park well from there, but it isn't as high.

Any interest in US Military Academies? You can take a bus from Manhattan to West Point in the morning, tour West Point and then ride the bus back in the afternoon (this would be an all day commitment). There is a very nice military museum there too. The actual tour behind the gates of West Point isn't very long.

Do you like pizza? Do yourself a favor and hit the famous coal oven spots. John's on Bleecker St, Lombardi's, Patsy's, Grimaldi's (in Brooklyn just across the East River under the bridge).

You can walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. Spend hours in Central Park. Visit the National History Museum.

Ride the subway. It is fast and cheap to get around. $2.50 a ride (or if you ride alot you can get 7 day for $30 unlimited ride).

Walk around Greenwich Village and Soho. Go to the Fillmore East site in the East Village.

If you are really into the tourist stuff you can ride these double decker tour buses. We rode them the first couple years we visited the city. Somebody narrates what you are looking at and you can use it like a taxi for getting around since the buses have a route map they run. Get off one bus and get on another. First year I was in NYC was 03 and I think there were just 2 of these bus companies around. There must be 6 or more now and their salesmen walk midtown like vultures.

About the only thing I hate in NYC is Times Square. My wife loves it. Go figure.

Feeling kinda stuck here. Up all night, flew in from Seattle this afternoon, only to discover that I am out of luck.

I see Robert Randolph is playing at the Brooklyn bowl tomorrow night. That could be a really good show.
Who wants to go? Hi suppose the subway must go there, although I certainly don't know how to do it.
