  1. You should also look into movie premieres happening at the Ziegfeld Theatre on 54th between 5th and 6th Ave. There's always a section where normal people can stay and sometimes the actors and actresses will come over for autographs. I went there for one of the Harry Potter premieres and that was how I got Emma Watson's autograph! Also, even if you don't get an autograph, it'll just be a really good opportunity to see famous people sort of up-close!

    Also, I really recommend Pommes Frites and Momofuku! Pommes Frites has the most amazing dips and both of those places are in this like small little shops and it gets crowded fast which is the most typical NYC environment. And you should check out the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory on Bayard Street!
