    Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site

    28 East 20th Street
    Tu-Sa 9AM-5PM, closed Federal holidays. $3 adults, children under 16 free, guided tours available. A designated National Historic Site, Roosevelt lived at this site from his birth in 1858 until the age of 14 years. The building is not the original - that was demolished in 1916 - but a reconstruction erected by admirers only three years later in 1919 after Roosevelt's death, and subsequently furnished with many of the original fittings and memorabilia of the 26th US President by Roosevelt's wife and sisters.

  • B&H

    B&H

    420 9th Av.
    Perhaps the best camera and photography equipment store in New York, this is the place to go for any of the cameras and camera accessories you might want. The selection is good and the staff is knowledgeable and willing to discuss things with you. It is owned and heavily staffed by Hasidic Jews, so it is closed on Friday nights, Saturdays, and all Jewish holidays except for Hanukkah. B&H provides its holiday closing schedule here.

In addition to most St. John's home games, the Garden also hosts three major college men's basketball events each year. At the start of the season, the Garden hosts the semifinals and finals of the NIT Season Tip-Off [5], a prestigious early-season event operated by the country's main college sports body, the NCAA. After the regular season, the Garden then hosts the Big East Conference Men's Basketball Tournament [6] in early March, which determines the conference's automatic representative in the wildly popular NCAA tournament. Finally, in late March, the Garden hosts the semifinals and finals of the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) [7], a tournament that the NCAA operates as something of a consolation prize for teams that do not make the NCAA tournament.

  • Toys 'R' Us

    1514 Broadway
    M-Th 10AM-10PM, F-Sa 10AM-11PM, Su 10AM-9PM. The name pretty much speaks for itself, though it's probably a lot bigger and more dazzling than the typical Toys "R" Us store back in your hometown. Browse through the many sections of toys, games, and electronics and take a ride on their indoor ferris wheel. The cars, based on toys, can carry several people and each round will allow riders to see each floor in the building. An attendant at the loading station will take a picture of you in the car before you go up, however; purchasing the photo is expensive so only do so if you really want to get it.

  • Hudson River Park

    Hudson River Park

    59th StWest Side Hwy
    The Hudson River is a 315-mile watercourse that flows from north to south through eastern New York State in the United States. The river begins at Henderson Lake in Newcomb, New York. The river flows southward past the state capital at Albany and then eventually forms the boundary between New York City and the U.S. state of New Jersey at its mouth before emptying into Upper New York Bay. Its lower half is a tidal estuary, which occupies the Hudson Fjord. This formed during the most recent North American glaciation over the latter part of the Wisconsin Stage of the Last Glacial Maximum, 26,000 to 13,300 years ago. Tidal waters influence the Hudson's flow as far north as Troy, New York.
