I always got a metro card for the week when I visit because the subway system is amazing and easy to use I think even if you only use it for two trips a day you are already saving money vs paying each ride but don't quote me on that.

I agree the Empire State is not worth it but I highly recommend the Top of the Rock/Rockefeller Center: still a lot of tourists but no bars to block the great view. Try and find out the time for sunset so you can go when the sun is still up and you get both the day and nigh view at once - amazing!
