    Besides the main attractions of the city i.e. Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Statue of Liberty etc. What are some less know places to visit/experience? Im particularly interested in some shopping for things native to NY and memorabilia. The downtown area use to have some great shops but I don't know if that is still true.

    As a bonus if there are any economical lodging that can be found, I would be interested. I know I'm living in fantasy land. :D

    We went to the Doughnut Plant. Yummy!
    And we ate at a great pizza place called Don Giovanni's. My hubby sings opera so I found this place with an operatic name. It was great!
    Both food places, I know, but we mostly did main attractions. We did try to eat at local places though.

    You HAVE to go to John's Pizzeria in the theater district. It's on W 44th street, I think. You can take the S line to 42nd and then walk from there.

    There's also a small (but very nice & clean) NY memorabilia shop a few doors down.

    Awesome! Thank you both for the tips! I also remember a great pizzeria in the lower east side I would love to go back too. I think it was between Prince St & Elizabeth (?) I wonder if its still there….
