Ten DOs and DON’Ts in New York City Suggested by Concierge.com

1. Do NOT take a Pedi-cab (unless one wants to go green). Do take the subway because it is cheap, fast, and convenience.
2. Do NOT eat anything from a hot dog cart. Do try the classic, all-beef deli dog ($3.10) at Katz’s Delicatessen (205 E Houston St) or other alternatives such as Dogmatic (26 E. 17th St) and Crif Dogs (113 St. Marks Place).
3. Do NOT go to the top of the Empire State Building for a view. Do enjoy a view with a drink in the Rainbow Room on the 65 floor at the Rockefeller Center.
4. Do NOT get cupcakes at Magnolia Bakery. Do visit the Rocco’s Pastry Shop (243 Bleecker St) and Cupcake Café (545 Ninth Ave).
5. Do NOT take a twilight carriage ride in Central Park. It sounds romantic, but the horses and drivers seem tired, and the street is not as clean if it is not dirty yet. Do go early in the morning and walk.
6. Do NOT east at Tavern on the Green (been closed in 2009 anyway). Do enjoy a real meal at the River Café (One Water Street; price is not cheap though). Or, go to Dumbo in Brooklyn by a cab or water taxi.
7. Do NOT eat in Time Squares unless you are a big fan of a franchised restaurant. Do try the Hell’s Kitchen.
8. Do NOT see a Time Square comedy show. Do stop by the Upright Citizens Brigade in Chelsea (307 W. 26th St).
9. Do NOT shop at Century 21. Do spend some time at Lord & Taylor’s flagship store (Fifth Ave & 38th St).
10. Enjoy a late night in the Lower East Side.
