My daughter & I will be traveling to NYC in late July (first time flying & to New York for both of us) to celebrate her graduation. She has studied ballet for 14 yrs. & choreographed her school play for the past 2 yrs., so the NYC ballet co. and a broadway show are a must. We would also like to see the taping of a t.v. show (Regis & Kelly, etc.). What is the best way to get tickets to all of the above? Best places to eat, famous people sightings? Places to shop? Safest way to travel once we are there? Price of taxi's? Other must see, must do items? We will be in New York for 3 days and we are staying at a hotel on 40th st./Times Square area. We are on a budget but would like to fit in as much as possible. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. While we are very excited about our trip, we are also very overwhelmed (we come from a very small town). Thanks for your help!!!
