Staying in Jamaica, NYC for a soccer tournament for the weekend. Taking subway and cab everywhere

I have Friday free and possibly half the day Sunday free.

I know there is tons to do, just wanted some opinions. I like museums, but I just dont think I'll get time

Here is my list.

- Twin towers memorial
- Times square
- New York Pizza
- Central Park
- China Town
- Canal Street
- Jackson Heights for some Indian food.

Appreciate it ya'll

MoMA has free admissions from 4 to 8 PM on Friday (regular tix is $20 or $12 for students).

Just so you know, there really isn't an official WTC memorial - I beleive there is a memorial-like display along the eastern border near the PATH entrance. Ground-0 is just a huge construction pit. Combine this w/ your Canal St./Chinatown visit, then stop at Arturo's on Houston St. for pizza. If you have Sunday morning off arrive at the Met @ 8:50 (or 10 mins. early whenever it opens) and go in the students entrance (ground level to the left of the main steps) and spend an hour or two before things get busy....

i like arturo's, but the wait is so damn long, that it might be more time efficient to just go to any of the other pizza places. i remember waiting forever to eat at arturo's - at that point you might as well wait to eat at una pizza neapolitana. also, you might want to stop by small's - a jazz spot in the west village. finally, taste one of NJ's famous deep fried hot dogs at crif dogs on st mark's.

go to central park & suntan with all the pretty girls. catch a free concert at the prospect park bandshell or at summerstage, etc.

there's too much to do, i won't bother going into the rest.

.......if you have the time, take a double decker bus that includes passage through Times Square. Ride this around dusk in Times Square and you will feel levitated upon the light emanating from all the signage. I can't really put it in words because it's a surreal experience. As a life long New Yorker, it still has a tremendous Wow factor for me.

I know you are short on time, but I just went to a Turner exhibit at the Met this past week. It was amazing. Definitely worth checking out if you done all the regular touristy things before.
