I say this is a "must do". We paid for the "any time pass" ($10) but you can get free tickets if you're willing to take the time assigned. The views are really interesting, not just out to the Hudson river but even over the...More

Very cool architecture, well designed. Yes, this is the new New York City. You can get free tickets by showing up, you may just not get the time you want. We got there at 10:30 on a Sunday and got free tickets but for 11:40....More

I swallowed my fear of heights to ascend the stairs on the Vessel. It's really cool to look at from all angles, from close and far distances. Each offers a different perspective. There's a great view of it from the High Line too. It's free...More

stunning, imaginative architecture makes this a must see on Manhattan Island and it's FREE. Tickets can be booked as late as 2 hours in advance. It defies description - it's an open lattice/staircase offering wonderful views across the newly developed Hudson Yards and Hudson River...More

It is another work of art. A complex Viewing Deck perfect for instagrammers! There are also shops beside the actual structure and easy to reach via the subway. You need to book your free tickets in advance if you don’t want to wait 2-3 hours...More

Amazing architecture and beautiful surroundings. We arrived early in the morning so the Vessel wasn’t open to walk the 2000-odd steps which was kind of a relief! We did however, manage to get some great photos. Well worth a visit whilst in NYC - even...More

This is a very unique place to visit while in New York City and it's a rare free place to tour. We visited on a midweek afternoon and only had to wait about an hour for entry with the free admission option. It is in...More

Just a strange piece of art that you can walk up and down. It's like a maze, beautiful one, nothing like I've seeing before. Line 7 stops right there and a few blocks away is the High Line Park. Near the structure is a huge...More

You can check the Hudson Yards website for free reservations. I recommend that you try to book it in advance if you have a particular time/day you'd like go. Otherwise, it can be hit or miss as to how crowded it is and... More
