The way to see and experience New York City is to walk around. You can have a great day in New York City without spending any money.

You can walk across the Brooklyn Bridge (free), walk down to the 9/11 Memorial (you won't really be able to get in without advance tickets) - see the new not-yet-open Freedom Tower, walk down along the waterfront and see the Statue of Liberty in the harbor. It is always beautiful to ride the Staten Island Ferry (roundtrip to Staten Island and back - all free). You can stroll up the east side to South Street Seaport, walk up through Chinatown, SoHo, Greenwich Village, Union Square and keep walking all the up past the Empire State Bldg to Macy's then Times Square, Rockefeller Center and into Central Park. If you are physically fit and up for the walking, you can conceivably do all these things in one long day and it won't cost you one red cent.

Are you the "Hop on Hop off" type brother?


Otherwise you'd need a month, if not more.
