A Long Weekend in NYC

A good friend from law school and her husband are coming to visit us in New York this weekend. They're driving up from Maryland on Friday morning and heading back after lunch on Sunday.

I've been making a list of things to do in NYC/Brooklyn. My friend loves photography and her husband loves computers, airplanes, and science. Do you have any suggestions?

Here are a few of the things that I've come up with so far:

Lincoln Center $20 for 20 days until Jan 26, 2010
Broadway at 62nd Street inside the David Rubenstein Atrium
To celebrate the opening of the Zucker box office, same day tickets at Lincoln Center are on offer for $20 for 20 days through the generous donation of David Rubenstein. There's a limit of 2 tickets per person. You can sign up for an email alert that will inform you of which tickets will be on offer the next day. The box office opens at noon. Over the last few days, they've offered tickets to South Pacific (Loved it!!), NYC Ballet, the Metropolitan Opera...

  1. Thanks for the heads up about Lincoln Center - that looks great! I hope I can make it there before it ends on the 26th.

    Have you been to the NY Historical Society?

    It is a very manageable museum - they have some good permanent exhibits but the feature ones are also really good and tend to be focused. If you have a chance, check it out.
