weather: be ready for anything we have had snow in april and we have been in the seventies in april.

what to do:
bronx zoo
MET
museum of natural history
NY aqurium
central park zoo (though its more of a winter thing)
empire state building
the BBG has a kick ass festival in the spring april i think.

Less umm "public" things to do
go clubbing
have wonton sex with strangers
flash people
use the subway

Well, if you're into sports, just visit the World's Most Successful Franchise EVER in the New York Yankees, who will have opening day in April, and visit the majestic Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.

As for the Statue of Liberty, it is open, but you can't go all the way up to the top, as I remember. I have a friend in the Parks Department, so I can try to find out. But, as I know it, you can only go to the top of the pedastal, or to where her feet are. I think they have a glass ceiling at where her feet are so that you can look up into the statue, but you can't go up the statue itself.

As for shopping, you have to go shopping. Too bad you didn't come this past month with all the Christmas window displays at all the major department stores.

Yeah, the fun pass is a good idea.

I think you spend like $6 for a one-day pass, in which is unlimited and you can use it countless times, but only lasts until Midnight.

Or, if you're here longer, you can get a week-pass.

There's so much to do, it's hard to recommend, but others have put out some good suggestions.

A common experience for tourists here, especially those who are not used to large cities, is that they try to do too much and feel tired and overwhelmed and never really get to adjust to the environment. So I would definitely give yourself some unplanned down time to just sit in a cafe or something and soak it all in.
