i'm not sure about 'show tapings' but my personal favorite Broadway show is the Christmas Spectacular is truly amazing
city tours aren't really amazing with tourist guides, and you don't really want to look like a tourist...
for Central Park, there's horse carriages literally everywhere, make sure you're dressed accordingly, the rides are a little costly but really fun to just lay back and look at the scenery, say hello to the people!
like the saying: 'new york city never sleeps,' it's still pretty safe at night since there's so many people. just make sure that your bags aren't loose so that thieves can reach in without you knowing--and NEVER flash your money in public.
the best way to travel is by subway, bus and car rides are NEVER guaranteed and most of the time, there's traffic and you'll be moving 10 MPH at the most. the subway is cheaper and you get a better feel of what NY is really like. Also, it's a LOT cheaper. transit fairs are $2.25 and cabs range from $30 or more--and you won't even be going that far. subways go both ways, make sure you get on the RIGHT one, always ask the people who work there or an officer. when waiting for the subway, stick to the crowd of people, don't wait away from the crowds, you're more vulnerable to thieves and dangerous people when you two are just alone.
most likely, the best deals are at travel agencies or just online ticket purchasing.
you most definately want to take a picture in times square--
at night, the lights are truly magical~
