NY NY

Hey TQC!
I'm flying to New York next week, from the UK. I arrive Tuesday evening, I've got a couple of nights in a boutique hotel in Little Italy, and then on Thursday some friends are coming out to join me, and we're staying somewhere uptown until Sunday.
So my questions are; what do I need to remember to do in preparation for my trip? I'll get currency, I've checked that my phone will work there, and I'm about to sort out my visa; what else?
And what should I do once I'm there? In the couple of days on my own, I'm planning to go to the garment district for some fabric shopping (Mood Fabrics, here I come), and I'd love to go to some thrift stores; can you recommend any neighbourhoods? What else should I do?
Good places to grab a bite to eat? I feel like I ought to get a slice of New York pizza while I'm there; where's the best?
I've got a bit of money to spend but not, like, loads, so low to mid-range budget stuff would be good, rather than really high end stuff. I like food, shopping, science, interesting stuff, long walks on the beach, cosy nights in with a glass of wine, the usual kind of thing. Plan my trip for me?

Also, how's the weather in NY NY?
