    It was interesting and emotional trip during a few hours. I thought that about this tragedy we all knew a lot, but during those hours, we got to know and feel much more.

    There is so much to see. The museum is huge. I could spend several days inside.
    The diversity of the art collection is impressive.

    We took a NYC carriage ride through Central Park. The other 2 in my group had never been to NYC. I’ve taken carriage rides in Central Park many times, and this was the most enjoyable. Pedro, our driver and guide was excellent. He showed us and told us things I had never seen nor heard before. We also stopped 3 times for photo ops, and he also took our pictures with our phones. Central Park is not only enormous in size, but beautiful, and offers something for everyone. It’s a gorgeous asset for NYC, and a must to visit, but do it with a good guide on your first visit.

    The view from the 86th floor was spectacular but the view from the 102nd floor was phenomenal. I definitely recommend going to the empire state building not just for the view but for the history of it. Get the fast pass. Definitely worth it.

    We visited during the day and thoroughly enjoyed the site. You are able to step out to a viewing platform which was great.

    I pre-booked with Statue city cruises and despite the large number of visitors it ran very smoothly. There’s airport style security for checking in so it’s best to not bring a lot with you, although a face mask is needed. I pre booked to make sure to get a Pedestal ticket which was well worth it as you get to see up inside to see some of the internal framework, and get some great views from the pedestal walkway. On Liberty island there’s a museum and free audio guides too. The second stop is Ellis island before returning back to Battery park and it all ran like clockwork. I’m glad I got to visit the actual island as previously I’d only seen the statue from afar. A must do when in NYC!

    Me and my friend ventured here and tried to use the subway, We did ask the chap in the subway booth which station we needed to get off but he was not helpful at all - too busy eating his lunch. So we end up getting off the subway but at the wrong station - we ended up in Williamsburg, so walked and walked, which was really lovely as it gave us an insite to NY that we probably would have never ventured out and discovered. We finally got to Brooklyn Bridge and all I can say is, is its beautifully structured bridge and it wonderful to approach the bridge and see the NY skyline. Loved it and was one of my fave days out.

    The skyline was amazing. We done a day time trip to the Top of the Rock and that gave a wonderful view of all the main buildings and sites. Also a night time trip up the Empire State Building which was great to see all the coloured lights etc. I would recommend both trips.

    The view of the neighborhoods of NYC, and the contrast between the lovely greenery of all the plants and trees with the tall and imposing buildings, is a wonderful way to experience NYC!

    We absolutely loved our visit here, from start to finish. The building is just amazing, it really takes your breath away to stand at the bottom and just look up!

    The lift (elevator) is an experience in itself! It's really fast too.

    I won't give anything away, but when you leave the lift and watch the little film, consider filming it! I wish I had. Something happens that simply takes your breath away.

    A visit here is worth every penny.

    Staggeringly beautiful building - all marble and stone. We bought a metro weekly ticket and had the thrill of riding the underground trains but to suddenly appear in this station took our breath away. Awesome.

    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.

    If visiting in the summer try Monday nights for the free open air movies (no bookings needed). It’s a nice atmosphere with a mix of native New Yorkers and tourists. Along with surrounding cafes there’s also small stalls selling snacks and beers, plenty of seating and free WiFi in the park.
