What Should I do in NYC?

My first trip to NYC ever — so everyone — tell me

WHAT SHOULD I DO IN NYC?

I am making a list – unfortunately I am just going to miss some of the best events I have found. I am posting them anyway. I wish I had known about the gamelan performance!

I will also visit Providence, RI for a day or so at the end of August 30-31. I will miss the bonfires on Aug 29th.
