you can either get touristy or get local. how long will you be staying? that makes all the difference :)
definitely check out the museum of natural history, the zoos, museum of modern art, etc. a lot of the rates to museums are suggested donations. hit up some broadway shows as well. locals don't usually go to these shows but whatever floats your boat...
learn how to read the subway map. download a subway app + yelp app. they will come in handy!

let me know what you're interested in... ie: nyc's history, electronics, art, food, etc. i'll try to come up with some tips.

The Marriott at Fairview in Astoria is about 120 a night I think ... relatively cheap for being a marriott ... if you just need a place to sleep you better off at a motel

THANK YOU for all the suggestions!! :) We booked a room at Hotel Vetiver in Long Island City which seems super convenient to get to Manhattan. We're also getting the NY CityPass so we can hit up all the museums you mentioned! :)

Any suggestions as to where to eat?

if you are going before Aug 10 check out the restaurant week options it's a relatively cheap way to experience 4 and 5 star dining. Otherwise, what kind of places did you want to eat, touristy, ethnic food, what area do you plan on eating in?

whatever you do, eat local! try not to get fast food/olive garden/tgifridays/etc.

use the yelp app to find restaurants.
