Probably its too late for this post since its already the 14th, but here goes:

Princeton--pretty college town
Atlantic City--boardwalk and casinos
Wildwood/Cape May--more beach and party scene
Statue of Liberty (it's actually in NJ, not NY)
Delaware River--time to start canoeing
Edison Museum in Orange
Restaurants on the Hudson at Weehauken (also you can take a dinner cruise on the Spirit of New Jersey from there)

The real incarnation of the Bada Bing is on Route 17 and is called Satin Dolls.

While this post is old, I had to add a few things after an amazing weekend of hiking in western New Jersey.

We hiked Mount Tammany by the Delware Water Gap through the Appalachian mountains (excuse my spelling). You can hike up to the top of Mount Tammany for some excellent views. The hike, using the Appalachian trail, then branching at the blue dot and coming down on the red dot, is around 4 1/2 miles and climbs 1200 feet in altitude. http://www.nps.gov/dewa/Activities/Hikes/hikeWGAP.html#tammany

We next went to High Point State Park, the highest point in New Jersey at 1803 feet above sea level. There are a number of trails in the park, as well as a beach for swimming and a monument to the height of New Jersey. There are some more excellent views of the Delware river. http://www.state.nj.us/dep/parksandforests/parks/highpoint.html
