    This museum reminded us of the Holocaust Museum in DC. It is a beautiful tribute and has the blend of an informative museum and a memorial site. Highly recommend.

    Spent the entire day here, and loved it. Best art museum in the United States. I spent the most time in the American and European painting wings. Also, the multiple workers I had an exchange with were very kind and helpful.

    Central Park is awesome. Great place to explore to get away from the concrete jungle of the city. Lots of little mini sites to see as seen in countless tv shows and movies.

    If you have never been to NYC, nothing will prepare you for how the view strikes you when you walk out the doors on the 86th floor at night! It's one of those things that you can't use words to explain.

    We went late at night, and there was still a decent amount of people there. I wouldn't commit too much time to the wait. Seems like the would tour could be painful if busy.

    It was nice to walk just an iconic structure and also read about the history of it and how it came to be. Offers some nice views as well. Good to do once.

    In this review I wont bother you with skyscrapers top viewpoints as everybody knows they're great, but they're costing some 30-40 bucks per person.
    I give you my list of totally FREE viewpoints from where you can enjoy the NYC skyline I managed to visit during my 3 visits over the years to this fabulous city.
    Ranking is based on geographical position, NOT on the beauty of the view, starting from east, over south to western viewpoints.
    1. Pepsi Cola sign - terrific midtown views
    2. Gantry Plaza park - very similar, little bit south
    3. Domino Park - views between midtown and downtown
    4. Dumbo and Brooklyn bridge park - excellent lower Manhattan views
    5. WALK over the Brooklyn bridge from Brooklyn towards Manhattan
    6. Staten island ferry - excellent views of the southern Manhattan (same views as from Liberty statue ferry, but Staten island ferry is free),
    7. Empty sky Memorial - great south Manhattan views from Jersey side
    8. Maxwell Park on the Jersey side

    I would walk this every day if I lived here. Great views, peaceful and beautiful gardens and paths. You’re on top of NY and I can imagine you would see something new every time you walk it. You also get a glimpse into NY’ers lives and homes!

    Go on a clear day as you can and have your view limited if there are any clouds. We were lucky and got great views to see all around, Quick up and down. Worth doing once.

    If you are staying in Manhattan and close to Time Square area this is not far at all. It is on 42nd St. and definitely worth to visit and take some good pics .

    Beautiful surroundings for a fabulous museum! This is a treasure trove of medieval art. We spent the better part of a day there. Pack a bag lunch, as we found the little restaurant expensive & not very good—& we aren’t hard to please!

    I forgot how lovely this is in summer, as we often visited in winter to see the tree. The space was decorated with Pride flags and all the flowers were lovely. Daughter and I sat by the Prometheus fountain and watched all the roller skaters where the ice skaters are in winter. Free and a good place to rest and people watch for a bit.

    Never been to RCMH before. I loved it. The inside of the building was a iconic and beautiful as the outside. Went in April to see Olivia Rodrigo there and what a show!

    Visiting Bryant Park on a Sunday was excellent with all it's Art and Craft pop up shops, pop up musicians and what a great space for family and friends to meet, sit on the grass or tables and chairs on the outer.
