New York, New York

It's vacation time again! Soon, anyway. I'll be in New York for a few days at the end of June, and I'm looking for suggestions for things to do. Last time I did this I was accompanied by Marian and some friends who had never been to New York before, so lots of standard tourist stuff was on the agenda. This time I'm on my own, so I'd be interested in ideas that are a little off the beaten path. This worked pretty well last time, so I thought I'd ask readers for suggestions again.

Not that the usual stuff is off limits. I'm definitely going to spend a few hours at MOMA. I haven't been there in ages and my hotel is right nearby. And I've never been to the Bronx Zoo. Is it worth a visit if the weather isn't too bad? Or maybe a Yankees game at the new stadium if I can find someone who wants to go with me. Beyond that, though, I have no plans. What should I do and what should I eat while I'm there?
