Trip advice

Hi all. I was wondering if any of you would mind helping me with this. . . I'm taking my lovely girlfried (soon to be wife) to New York for a badly needed break, arriving on the 5th Jan untill the 9th. I was wondering what are the best things to do/see in NY if on a short trip, we want to relax a bit and not run around like headless chickens trying to get it all in. I have booked seats for a game at Madison Gardens on the 6th (big sports fans) and have very little else org. after that. Any help would be great, Thanks -Kevin in Ireland.

Book a show. (Broadwaybox.com has discounts)

Take a tour if you want. NY Party Shuttle or Marvelous Manhattan.

Go to a romantic lunch or dinner.

Maybe go ice skating in Central Park.

Here's some more info

Forgot, try to take a ride on the Staten Island ferry for a view of the Statue of Liberty. Go to Top of the Rock, observation tower at Rock. ctr. There's a 2 for 1 offer. Look on the forum.
