a very interesting attraction, if you like history and technology, even if you don't, you might find this attraction interesting, if only to look around and check out all the aircraft on display, including planes, and helicopters, and the Space Shuttle ( which is extra $ ). Check out Groupon and see if there's a deal available, that's what we... More

To start, I am OBSESSED with Airplanes. I tried to go here during one of my trips to New York but it was closed because it was soon after Hurricane Katrina and they had some damage (museum is on the water). I was able to go this past December during another one of my day trips and was so, completely... More

This museum has an interesting and eclectic range of aircraft. I was however slightly disappointed that it was not possible to see more of the ship. I took the Concorde tour. The guide for the tour knew a great deal and had a genuine passion for the aircraft which made for an excellent tour and well worth the small extra... More

On a recent work trip to NYC I made a point of freeing some time up to see the Intrepid Air and Sea Museum. Having visited the museum on my last visit in 2010, I was interested in visiting again knowing that some of the ship was now more readily accessible and also that the Space Shuttle Enterprise was now...

A lot of great things to see. The highlights for me were the Concorde tour ( additional fee) and the Space shuttle exhibit. Check group on for discounts! A must for aviation enthusiasts.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
