    Im flying up to NYC for the Muppet/Sesame Carnegie hall performance in a week, and staying for a week in NYC/Queens/Brooklyn/etc. Any suggestions of stuff to check out or visit, or experience?

    Only thing so far is the Museum of Modern Art, Time Square(FAO!), and Central Park.

    Paley Center for Media; I would live there if I could and watch as much classic Henson material as possible.

    Are you gonna stop by the old Henson building, and/or the Sesame Street studio? I don't know their addresses, I'm sure others on here do though. ;)

    Have fun man!

    There's The Metropolitan Museum of Art where Don't Eat the Pictures took place. Lots of recognizable items, hehe.

    And The Natural History Museum where the dinosaurs and planetarium are.

    If you're going to Brooklyn you have to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, it's an incredible view. :)

    You can go to Wall Street and see the new building being constructed near Ground Zero.

    You could take the Staten Island Ferry to see the Statue of Liberty.

    I'd also recommend the Bronx Zoo and Botanical Gardens.

    Just wanted to point out, FAO is actually closer to Central Park than Time Square. :)

    I gotta say that Strawberry Fields in Central Park, and the John Lennon memorial are both great. Chinatown and Little Italy are both kinda cool. I found those 2 things by accident after I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge. I walked across the Manhattan Bridge and about 1/2 way to 3/4th of the way through I saw Chinese graffiti and realized I was in Chinatown. Just warning you, it's a long dang walk back to Time Square from Chinatown lol.

    I dont think they allow tours of Sesame Workshop, so probably wont go there. Would be cool to see where the old Henson place was tho!

    Aw Im going to the Guggenheim and Museum of Modern Art, not sure I'll have time or money for the Met. I'd love to tho! And I love Natural History museums.

    Oh I'll definitely be in Brooklyn(particularly Williamsburg) a couple days.
    I definitely can't wait to see what all the Occupy/Wall Street/crazyness is about. I wanna take in all the sights, sounds and culture of contemporary NY. Gah cant believe its been 26 years since I last went. Yeah Im definitely going to Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island

    Aw that's OK, yeah that's the only drawback to museums, lol. I still have to get to the Guggenheim one of these days though, I hope you enjoy!

    I've never been to NYC, but just an idea:

    You could go to some of the spots of the Muppets Take Manhattan. For example:
    Sardi's (234 West 44th Street)
    Bergdorf Goodman
    Central Park

    The building used for the exterior of Pete's Luncheonette is now a McDonald's Express on 208 Varick Street.

    I live pretty close to NYC and used to frequent it when I was younger, I'd recommend M&M World, its a very big store that has a lot of M&M merchandise and its near a store which has lots of Hershey merchandise and candy (the M&M store has candy of course ^^)

    The address that used to be Henson Associates is 227 East 67th Street.
    The original location for Sesame Street, the now-defunct Teletape Studio is on the corner of Broadway and 81st Street, which is a short cab ride from Carnegie hall and Central Park.
