There's a lot to do here. There's too much to do here. You're going to have to narrow it down.

Well, Queens isn't the best place if you don't really live here so I would say go to Manhattan... But in Queens there is the Museum of the Moving Image, you can take the Silvercup Studios tour, go to Flushing-Meadow Park, Astoria Park. Thats about all I can think of right now.

Head into Manhattan and see if you can find a TV show or movie filming in the city. See if you can get in the shot as a crowd member. Or head to Rockefeller Center and see if you can moon the morning newscaster.

Pizza at Sbarro is a must to get a genuine New York slice.

And of course you have to go to the Sbarro in Times Square. Nothing like the true NY experience.

I don't think there's much to do in NYC. You have to head over to Jersey for any kind of night life.
