    Good job at capturing and interpreting a major tragedy. It covers not only the timeline and testemonials of people that lived (or died) in the event but also the mindset of the terrorists and the scars it left.

    Absolutely must see when you are in NYC! Especially if you love art, this is just amazing place, where you can easily spend entire day.

    We recommend you take the longer tricycle guided tour of the park. The guides are from all over the world and great people.

    We had an easy time getting tickets on line for a time frame that suited our NYC visit's schedule. We went around 5:30 and experienced no lines at all. I loved the interactive displays on the way to the elevator(s) -- that was unexpected to me, but a very cool way to learn about the site and its history, famous visitors, etc.. We were there on a hot, summer afternoon and appreciated the breeze up on the 86th floor. Great views, as expected, and we spent a pleasant time of roughly 30-40 minutes outside. This was a wonderful part of our NYC visit, and you should go, too!

    One of the best views in the city! Amazing at sunset, but very crowded. Love the view of the Empire State Building and the multiple observatory levels.

    Our Tour Guide Billy made the entire trip very enjoyable! He gave us valuable information, helped us remember details, made us laugh, and made the tour interactive by asking us questions and providing answers. He even laid down on the ground in order to take pictures of each group. Plus, he was concerned about my toe issues and gave helpful suggestions and directed me to the Ranger's station. Billy is awesome!!!

Y’all are great!! We enjoyed our stay. The room was beautiful. We had a city view . One word, BEAUTIFUL! I think the people who gave less than 5 star reviews is super picky. The location is perfect. If you want an experience , stay here and explore what all Brooklyn has to offer! Btw we saw Kendrick Lamar! Epic!! Can’t wait to come back! Xoxoxo

    The Highline is a fantastic idea! It's a lovely walk with lots to see along the way. There are lots of places where you can get up to it and of course exit it too. It's a great way to get from A to B or to pass the time.

    Super views. Only disappointments were the mechanical malfunction of the Observatory elevator that forced us to return the following day and the frequent steel dividers between the windows that obstructed wider pictures of the scenery.

    Superb architecture and imposing history of this building takes the visitor on a journey beyond what any train can venture.

    Such a beautiful gem tucked away in upper Manhattan! I’m not a huge museum person (can’t stay focused) but I am a sucker for architecture and loved how all these European artifacts were displayed in this lovely space. It is around an hour by train but so worth it! The surrounding area is also lovely and feels like you are not in NYC at all.

    It could be a bit tricky to find a ticket office for access to the Top of the Rock. When you go down staircase and at the end of it, you should turn left , not right as security guards advise you at the entrance. Door to the ticket office will be a few feet away from staircase on the opposite side of hallway. Rest of experience was amazing. Must see while in NYC.

    Fantastic, this was a once in a lifetime trip and the RCMH did not disappoint. Family and myself were very delighted to see the inside of this historic building and to see
    the dancers and hear the music inside this famed building. Loved it.

    Nice park close to Times Square. My wife attended the yoga a few days which she said was well organised, a lot of fun and she met a few local people. Nice place to sit and people watch.
