    The Abercrombie store is on Water (going by their website). The location is within the South Street Seaport.

    EDIT (late): If you look at the store directory for the South Street Seaport, E represents Abercrombie and 2 other stores. The stores are located on 199 Water, which is part of the South Street Seaport. Hope that helps. To get to the other stores, you have to do a little walking.

    I forgot how long you're gonna be going for, but I would check out a Yankee or Met game. Both stadiums are easily accessible by Subway.

    South Street Seaport

    You should definitely stop by South Street Seaport, especially in the evening. There are some really nice views there.

    Central Park, Coney Island, walk across the Brooklyn bridge, Transit museum (if you're into that), etc.

    Skip Times Square. I'd also say skip the Apple store, but that won't be a popular decision here.

    Times Square is nice to see, but it's only entertaining for half an hour or so, if that. 5th Ave. Is nice if you have loads of cash to spend.

    I recommend the Empire State Building. Bring something to so, because it can be an hour long wait, but it's worth it to see a birds eye view of the city.

    Ah, what I wouldn't give to go back there.

    Knowing the Genius Bars of NYC, I wouldn't suggest going to the 5th Ave. Try SoHo instead.

    you mean the one in brooklyn? that was really cool, i'd highly recomend it.

    also, grand central station is really cool, especially just standing and peoplewatching.

    MOMA is my favorite art museum there.

    Was there last month...

    Skip the Empire State Building....go to the Top of the Rock. I hear the lines are shorter and it's less busy than the ESB. We made the mistake of going to ESB and figured that we waited in 10 different lines just to get to the observation deck. While the view was nice, it's wasn't worth waiting in lines for 2 hours.

    There's not much to see at ground zero. Most everything was fenced off and some sidewalks were closed...but if you're down that way, take the Staten Island ferry across and back....a cheap way to see the Statue of Liberty!

    I totally agree with that, plus you get to see the Empire State building as part of the view which makes for great snaps.
