One day in NYC: What would you do?

I’m about to zip to New York for two short days. The ostensible purpose of my trip: To see one of the last-ever performances of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company on planet Earth.

As you may recall, the company is slated to fold on Dec. 31, in accordance with the wishes of the Centralia-born choreographer, who died in 2009. The troupe made one final visit to Seattle earlier this year. And a lovely appreciation of his work by critic Alastair Macaulay just ran in The New York Times.

But here’s my quandary: What else to do on my one free day and night in NYC? I used to live there, so I don’t need to do the touristy stuff. But good current shows? Exhibitions? Events? I’m all ears ….
