Although this has become a tourist attraction, I still like the High Line park. I also like the Chelsey Market and the Greenwich & East Village walking tours.

I've posted about this once on PT. It is an AMAZING show. You will not regret one dollar of the ticket cost I promise you! The restaurant next to it, Gallow Green, is also a great place to get dinner and drinks before or after the show. I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend doing this in NYC. Better than any show on Broadway I promise. I went to it twice and am dying to go again.

visiting Roosevelt Island. You take a tram to get there and the views are great. Also, Governor's Island is a short ferry ride from lower Manhattan. You can take the M15 bus to get there and that bus travels through interesting neighborhoods like Chinatown and the Lower Eastside. The last stop is near the Staten Island Ferry. Have fun!

We like Ellen's Stardust Diner. It has a singing wait staff and is a lot of fun. http://ellensstardustdiner.com/

I have also eaten at Foley's, which his near Penn Station. It is like a baseball sports museum inside and reasonably priced pub food. https://www.foleysny.com/

Another place we enjoyed in the theater district is Lillie's Victorian. https://www.lilliesnyc.com/

And finally, also in the theater district is Joe Allen. https://joeallenrestaurant.com/

Have a great trip!

Take the subway into Brooklyn and have some good pizza while there. Then walk back across the bridge into Manhattan. Beautiful views.
