      Although I really enjoy the plays, I think I would like to  do all of the things you mentioned.

    The American Museum of Natural History, Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral, F.A.O. Schwartz , Times Square, Wall Street, and the United Nations are all good starting points in New York City. The Waldorf Astoria and the Westin would be my personal choice for a hotel room.

    I was there in the early 1990's, and I HAD to see the Statue of Liberty, Grand Central Station and the Empire State Building. Later I was sad that I didn't take the tour of the World Trade Center, but I did walk around it. Dang, they were tall! Also I made a point to ride the subway.

    There's so much to do in NYC! Hang out in Washington Square, walk around the Cloisters, check out the giant sparkling boulders of Manhattan Schist in Central Park, and enjoy great pasta in Little Italy.

    Broadway is big fun, but it's a bit like an amusement park. If you'll dare to venture out of the tourist areas, you'll likely have a more authentic experience and taste a slice of real life in the city!

    Go to St. Marks Place, walk around the East Village, take the subway to Brooklyn, check out the bars in the Lower East Side and go to Grand Central Station.  Grand Central is amazing!  I went to the Michael Jordan steakhouse about 6 years ago.  If it's still there I highly recommend it.  Awesome steak in an awesome setting!

    If you go to NYC for a daytrip and want something to do, go to Union Square. Nearby is Strand Bookstore, the farmer's market, Madison Square Park (Shake Shack burgers), and Gramercy Park (to walk around because it's closed to the public).
    If you go to NYC for film culture, go to Lincoln Center's movie theater, the IFC movie theater, MOMA, the Museum of the Moving Image (in Queens), Paley Center, the Ziegfeld theater, NBC studios for the tour, and take a locations tour (Sex and the City, Gossip Girl, Woody Allen, and Law & Order.)
    If you go to NYC for landmarks, go to: the NYC public library (with the lions), the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, TWC, Empire State Building, the Whitney, the Met, the Museum of Natural History, Rockefeller Center's ice rink, Central Park's main field for a complete 360 skyline and find the castle, Columbia University, NYU, Penn Station's 7th Ave entrance to Madison Square Garden, Grand Central Terminal's main lobby, Grand Central Station, etc.

    Spend some time walking through The Ramble and Lake at Central Park. It's an incredible experience to navigate your way through the hustle and bustle of the streets of NYC and minutes later get lost in the quiet and serene setting of The Ramble and Lake. Enjoy your trip!
