Tahmic: Welcome to the Solo Travel forum. There are two ways for me to be helpful. First, type new york into the search box just above your post and click search. This will pull up the other posts where Solo Travel readers have inquired about NYC. Second, please pay a visit to the New York City forum (see link below). So much good information on the city, in general. There might be some meetup posts there, on the local forum. Third, come back and share what interests you have. Can't give you much advice if I don't know what you like to do.

The New York City forum contains loads of discussions on solo travel. It's a frequent topic there and you'll find lots of helpful insights.

Michael I would suggest while doing touristy stuff in NYC being your first time is a good thing, I would definitely tell you to get away from the tourist spots as well and explore some different neighborhoods.

I'm partial to the lower east side. Also take the subway over to Brooklyn and wander around Williamsburg.

If your not going to the Statue of Liberty or Ellis Island I would suggest taking a water taxi over to New Jersey to see the city full on.
