"Amazing Korean fried chicken wings! The restaurant is on the 2nd Floor--there isn't signage, so go by the street number (314 5th Ave). We recommend asking for 1/2 spicy and 1/2 ginger-garlic wings. Yumm!!! Oh, one warning--the restaurant feels like a night club... but it's worth bearing the thumping beat for those wings! Take the 6 train to 33rd St. B/D/F/N/Q/R/V/W to 34th St/Herald Sq."

"Janet & Ethan's favorite ramen restaurant. We highly recommend getting the Akamaru Modern ramen with added pork belly and share a tofu hotpot (it's called something like beretsu). If you don't order the tofu hotpot then get the pork buns. In recent months, the pork buns have gotten a bit thinner with the weakening economy, but they're still really good! If you run out of noodles before broth, you can order another ball of noodles. Be prepared to wait approximately 1 hour. If you go during happy hour, they'll have 2 for 1 draft beers. Take the R train to 8th St or 6 train to Astor Place."

"The reason to go to Joe's is the soup dumplings. They look like regular steamed dumplings, but they're filled with soup! Ethan suggests ordering more dumplings & fewer entrees.

Attraction:

Brooklyn Bridge - Attraction - Brooklyn Bridge, New York, NY, USA

Brooklyn Bridge

"Fun to walk across but Janet says, "Look out for the bicyclers!" Walkers need to stay on the southern lane and the bikers are on the northern lane. On the Brooklyn side it's Dumbo, on the Manhattan side, you'll be close to City Hall and South Street Seaport. Ethan warns of grifters looking to sell the bridge. It's probably best to start on the Brooklyn side and walk over toward Manhattan. Take the A/C train to High St."

Attraction:

Kykuit, the Rockefeller Estate - Attraction - 381 N Broadway, Sleepy Hollow, NY, United States

Kykuit, the Rockefeller Estate

381 N Broadway
Sleepy Hollow, NY, United States

"This hilltop paradise was home to four generations of the Rockefeller family, beginning with the philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, founder of Standard Oil. His business acumen made him, in his day, the richest man in America. Now a historic site of the National Trust, this extraordinary landmark has been continuously and meticulously maintained for almost 100 years. Your tour will take you to the main rooms of the six-story stone house. Then you will move on through the expansive, terraced gardens containing Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller's exceptional collection of 20th-century sculpture. Artists represented include Pablo Picasso, Henry Moore, Alexander Calder, Louise Nevelson, and David Smith, among many others. The private, underground art galleries with Governor Rockefeller's collection of Picasso tapestries, and the cavernous Coach Barn, with its collections of classic automobiles and horse-drawn carriages, are also part of the experience."

Attraction:

Kykuit, The Rockefeller Estate - Attraction - 200 Lake Rd, Pocantico Hills, NY, United States

Rockefeller State Park Preserve

"The most notable feature of the Preserve is the system of carriage roads built by John D. Rockefeller Sr. and John D. Rockefeller Jr. Designed to complement the landscape, the carriage roads, many of which are handicapped accessible, allow visitors to experience and enjoy the natural wonders of the area. These scenic paths wind through wetlands, woodlands, meadows, and fields and past streams, rivers, and lakes. They traverse wood and stone bridges, including the first triple arch bridge in America. One road passes by the foundation of Rockwood Hall, once the 220 room home of William Rockefeller. Its Olmstead designed landscape with its panoramic view of the Hudson River remains a spot of beauty for all who visit."

Long Island City, NY, United States

"A beautiful presentation of Noguchi's sculptures."

Museum:

Metropolitan Museum of Art

1000 5th Avenue
New York, NY, United States

"If you only have time for one museum, this is probably the one to go to. (Though if you love contemporary art, PS1 is the place to go). The Met has an immense and varied collection... It easy to get lost, so don't hesitate to ask the guards for directions to the exhibit you want to see. The admission cost is a bit high ($20 for adults, $15 for seniors, $10 for students), but it's a suggested donation, so you could pay less/none if you wished."

Museum:

Museum of Modern Art

11 W 53rd St
New York, NY, United States

"A great museum... If you're peckish, the 2nd floor restaurant is quite good. For finer dining, The Modern (http://www.themodernnyc.com) is supposed to be quite good. Your MoMA ticket will get you free admission to PS1, too."

Long Island City, NY, United States

"Ethan's favorite museum... It's located in a converted school building and features contemporary art & art installations. It doesn't have a permanent collection, so the art is constantly changing (well, at least changes every 3-4 months). Admission is a deal at $5 ($2 for students & seniors)--free if you have a MoMA ticket stub!"

Museum:

Guggenheim Museum - Museum - 1071 5th Ave, New York, NY, United States

Solomon R Guggenheim Museum

1071 5th Ave
New York, NY, United States

"Ethan has mixed feelings about the Guggenheim... the worthwhileness of visit is very dependent on what's currently on show. If you do go, give your legs a break and take the the elevator to the top and walk down (rather than walking up the ramp)."

Museum:

Brooklyn Museum of Art - Museum - 200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, NY, United States

The Brooklyn Museum

Brooklyn, NY 11225

"It's right along Prospect Park, the Brooklyn version of Central Park. This has newly renovated, so if you're in Brooklyn it' worth checking out. There are lots of restaurants in the Park Slope neighborhood"
