Advice needed - two days in NYC

I have a meeting in NYC on March 9, so I'm brining my wife and 23 year old daughter for a nice weekend.

My wife and I haven't been to NY in many years, and our daughter never has been there. So, my question... For a Friday night, Saturday and Sunday, what are the "don't miss" things?

She's not big on museums. Wants to see Chinatown, maybe some garment district and village or soho...

Any ideas for us?

Maybe you could go see Rock of Ages, a lot of parents with older teens/ young adults write back that the whole family loved it ( a lot of recognizable songs)


They have discounts here


Or cheaper (& even cooler IMO) you could go to see a real band together


A walk on the High Line after a visit to Chelsea market could be nice in the afternoon or early evening. Bowling at Bowlmore lanes could also be another evening idea.

What ever you decide to do remember to have fun!

Macy's at Herald Square for shopping, see Newsies on Broadway, go to Top of the Rock- they will love all three! I just returned from NYC with my daughter and daughter- in- law.

Walking tours are really fabulous and Ahoy New York Tours combines food with a walking tour of LIttle Italy and Chinatown



I think a great mother/daughter activity is tea at the Plaza hotel Quite a nice memory


Hope they have a lovely time!!
