Manhattan Skyline as taken from the Staten Island Ferry
My friend L and I have been busy planning our trip to NYC in August, although this year she says she wants to see the Museum of Natural History. I agreed, but I'm really not much of a museum person. Has anyone been there and can recomend specific exhibits or rooms to see that are interesting? I've been through a couple of guidebooks to find other things to do, I'm thinking of the firefighter museum. I've done most of the typical touristy stuff in New York (Empire State Buidling, Central Park etc) so I'm looking for more unique or off-the-wall things.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
