    Herald Square is a great place to sit, grab a cold water and take in the sights. We stopped in to Macy's-the largest department store in the world! Don't forget to stop in!

    Outdoor bistro tables, by-the-hour bike rental stations, and gourmet coffee stands make people-watching the sport of choice at this multi-block streetfront gathering spot.

    Where to find a shady spot to sit on 34th Street. Get great coffee at the 'wichcraft kiosk and hit up their happy hour coffee & tea specials (1/2 off every day 3-6pm). (via Scoville) Read more

    So close to everything! Subway, shopping (Macy's and so much more), Koreatown, etc. They have a great outdoors food court during the summer worth checking out.

    The statue of the two men and the bell rings on the hour (at least it did at 8pm). The men hit the bell. Its pretty cool.

    at night, look up at bennett monument: the eyes of two bronze owls at the top glow eerie green every second or so. "la nuit porte conseil." (the night brings counsel.)

    Skip the food carts. The person handling your food is also handling the money, and we all know how dirty money can be.

    It's better now that they've created more pedestrian space but generally packed with tourists.

    Busy. Lots to look at. Much better since they shut down the traffic and made it a pedestrian walkway.

    Never sit in the park area near the statues on hot days. Your sitting above the subway's exhaust grill

    DON'T feed the pigeons in the park, if you do you and everyone around you will be surrounded by hostile birds.

    It's just way too crowded. It's the WORST if you're actually trying to do any shopping.
