I was interested! glad you arrived properly to NYC, no problems with the visa or anything else?
have you found a decent couchsurfer?
if you go back to Grand Central (I assume you've not been waiting there since 2 days) make sure you take a look at the celling. There is a little dark dot on the SW side, it's was the color of the celling before they cleaned it... interesting, isn't it?
don't forget to check the Summerstage festival or the River to River festival, don't know if they've started yet, but they always have great concerts or what'eva, mostly for free!
have fun in NYC!

my trip was good but the flight back was not so great.
Northwest doesnt seem to be the greatest company. Those times I took a european airline to NY where definately more comfortable!
While the way to NY on a saturday still was nice, the plane to come back on tuesday was very small and basic. Almost like Ryanair. It had only 6 seats per row, no movie, entertainment system and for the most of the night, you were just left by yourself and didnt see the stewardesses. You could go to the back to get yourself a drink but beside this, there was nothing. No treatment etc.
It was a long and boring night and unfortunately I didnt sleep much. Maybe also because of the comfort of the place.
Anyway, the trip worked out and it was fine.
