    my wife and i are on a trip in new york just for fun. we've both been to nyc a few times for sightseeing...so we arent interested in seeing esb,statue of liberty, things like that. we want to ask the locals for things like best place for sushi(she favors more quaint authentic atmosphere than hip modern sushi places) , shows that are not broadway, interesting museums, nice neighborhoods, or just anything else that migh be worth visiting. please help! were staying til tonight. thanks!

    I'd hit the met museums new galleries, they have a very good new islamic gallery, and a relativly new (2-3 years) greek and roman gallery. there is also an exhibit on chinese opera that is still going on, I believe. aside from that, the Nue gallery, a german art museum is great. have fun

    go walk the highline and then grab a glass of wine and a snack at the bar a place like Colicchio or Del Posto (or even Morimoto).
