Def goto Rocefeller center, and if you can go at nighttime, because Bloomingdales across the street has a really nice show.
Take the kids to jeckel and Hydes, they will get a kick out of it.
Canal street is a great place to go shopping, but becareful for knockoff items.
There is something else you can do.
Ive seen it a couple times while i was at work, there is a Circular bicycle that fits about 5 people, hard to explain, just find out where to go for it, cause it loooks like fun and kinda funny looking as well.
OOO, cant forget, if you want a quick snack, stop and get the Nuts about Nuts nut stand in time square. My favorite, Cashews, and they are warm.
Enjoy the feris wheel in Toysrus while ur there.
Have fun and let us know how it goes.
