I am travelling to the USA for the first time and need help. Am going to be in New York for end of March and would like information on what to see or do.
My friend told me about Empire states building but said that I might have to be in lineup for
many hours. Any body been to NYC? Also anybody know how to get upgrades for flying?
Many people have said that all you have to do is dress like you are a business person and then ask for an upgrade. Anybody have any tips.
I also found these tips: Zoobat.Com anybody tried these?

I traveled to New York Years ago. The Empire State Building doesnt usually have that bad of a line up, Its the elevators and the switching of them to get to the top that takes a bit. Its the Statue of Liberty that has the line ups. I visited the island and wanted to go to the top of the statue but there was a 7 hour wait. But visiting the island is just as great. Central Park is another great place to visit. However be wary of the small resturants. I ate at a few near Central park becuase they were cheap and they had rats and cockroachs. The museums there are amazing. You should visit them. I wasn't there long enough to really suggest great places to visit. Hope you have a great trip tho. Its a great place!
