Any advice on where to eat in New York and New Jersey and places to shop (I love shoes)

You have to go to Woodbury Commons fashion outlet! Buses go every day (every hour usually) from Port Authority in Manhattan, right by Times Square.
It's about $40 return but it's a designer outlet so you can get some right bargains. Obviously you need to check out Bloomingdales and Macy's. Even if it's just for a little brown bag!
Try and avoid eating in big chain restaurants especially around Times Square, unless you want to pay crazy money. Prices in NYC are quite high anyway, maybe try diners or Independent restaurants if you want something cheaper. Depends where you are staying, generally the further uptown you go the lower prices go for food. I stayed up on 144th & Broadway and a gigantic pizza was $15 and fed 3 of us for two days.
Have fun!! It's one of my favourite places on earth.

I like Ben's Deli on 38th street just south of Times square.
Ferrara's in Little Italy and Junior's (45th and Broadway) have the best desserts in town.
Peter Lugar's Steakhouse in Brooklyn is considered the best Steakhouse in town, but is pricey.
In New Jersey, go to Charthouse Restaurant in Weehawken on the Hudson River. I also like Houston's in Rivers Edge right off of Highway 4.

The Eatery (across from the Flatiron building down near Greenwich Village) is the new place to buy everything from produce to pasta to desserts to steaks and sushi.
Carrato's in Garfield is known as the grocery store in New Jersey where you can get everything (it is also rumored to be mafia-owned).
Also in Garfield is the restaurant named Goodfellas, called this because the owners had bit parts in the movie, but their pasta definitely meets a good Italian's standards.

For reasonably priced pizza near Times Square, go to John's Pizza of Times Square at 260 44th Street. It used to be an old church and the place is huge and the pizza is good and great if you have a family with you.
