I did a class last January during a week long trip to NYC. The instructors were exceptional and it is a highlight of my travels so far. I would definitely recommend this! I did buy the pictures afterwards and did not feel the quality of them was worth the amount that was charged. I would recommend that a friend just... More

My sister and I surprised our teenagers, while on vacation, with lessons with TSNY. We didn't tell them until we arrived at the Coney Island location that they soon would be flying through the air. I think they were too stunned to take it all in at first but all four of them geared up and took the plunge. I... More

If you have ever wanted to feel like a bird or like one of the daring young men (or women!) on the flying trapeze, then this is the place for you!!! It is so much fun!! The instructors make you feel comfortable and safe and the experience is unlike anything else.

I'm a 43 year old mom of a 14 year old dancer daughter. We've done this trapeze school four times now - twice in NY and twice in DC. My daughter absolutely loves going at every opportunity and wish we had one closer to home. The instructors are always so supportive and encouraging - even for this old lady. It's... More

Having had some experience of other types of aerial I wanted to try something different during our trip to New York, and I stumbled upon an article about Trapeze School NY. I'm glad I did as it was a great way to spend an afternoon. Flying trapeze turned out to be actually a good bit scarier than the aerial hoop/silks... More

We went with two friends visiting the area. It was so fun and the staff was great with people who had never been trapeezing before!!! Members of our party ended the session being able to hang upsie down and be caught by a man. Even myself who was not good at trapeezing at all had a ton of fun. There... More

We took 2 classes with TSNY (we enjoyed it so much we went back!) and personally I can't fault them. Very safety conscious but also fun. They also seem expert at managing groups of varying ability. Be warned, the pace is fast and you learn a lot quickly, don't expect to be eased in. Just go for it and have... More

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
