And there is also the Yorkville neighbourhood, full of posh boutiques and restaurants/cafes. I'm not in the income bracket to be able to really participate, but sometimes it's fun to grab a spot on a coffee shop patio, or even a park bench, and watch the fancy people and expensive cars go by .

I also didn't see the point in going to the top of the Empire State Building either, so maybe I just don't care about tall buildings.
Thanks, guys!
