Red face Official "Things to do in NY thread"

Since we always get a ton of "visting ny....what to do?" threads,
why not have 1 thread (this one) where we all share spots that "tourist" "need" to visit while spending time here in NYC!!!!!

lets keep the whoring to a minimum.

when posting a spot, use the format below:


Name:
Boro:
Address:
Website:

The one and only Carnegie Deli in Manhattan! Great sammies, great homemade pickles, and the best cheesecake you will ever eat.
7th Ave and 55th St.
Carnegie Deli

BEAUTIFUL MONMOUTH COUNTY, NJ (CENTRAL JERSEY SHORE)

Towns to check out:
RED BANK. Trendy, upscale, lots of shopping and great restaurants. (GSP Exit 109)
PIER VILLAGE. Contrived (recently built) shopping/dining right on the ocean. Clean and trendy. (GSP Exit 105)
ASBURY PARK. Undergoing a rebirth around the Cookman Ave area. Look for trendy yet inexpensive places to eat, art, and a great music scene at the Stone Pony. (GSP Exit 100)
BELMAR. One of the quintessential Jersey Shore towns. More grown up than Seaside Heights or Pt. Pleasant yet there is still a young crowd. Check out the beach by 16th St. for hotties aplenty. Also check out Bar A for the ultimate night spot. (GSP Exit 100/98)

Local Food:
There are TONS of great locally owned restaurants by the shore but these are some of the more popular "quick bite" places you will only find here...
SURF TACO
WINDMILL HOT DOGS
JERSEY MIKE'S SUBS

Scenic/educational:
MT. MITCHILL. For great views of Sandy Hook and the Manhattan skyline. Highest point on the Atlantic Seaboard.
TWIN LIGHTS. Nice lighthouse and maritime museum.
SANDY HOOK. Great beaches and views. Also you can tour the remnants of Fort Hancock, an old military base/proving ground in the early 1900's, and Cold War missile defense sites.
