My sis and I visited NYC for the day. To maximize our experience we pre-purchased a downtown loop tour. Upon arriving to NYC, we immediately went to Madam Tussad's to turn in our voucher. It took almost an hour to get my actual ticket. We started the tour and had a tour guide with a heavy accent and a barely... More

The woodbury outlet bus is convenient for tourists! we enjoyed the trip so much! The bus trip was around 1 hour. We left woodbury at 4pm and there's a bit traffic jam near New York Bus Authority.

We booked a 3-day bus pass when we purchased our New York Pass and are so pleased we did. 3 did 3 tours, Uptown Manhatten, Downtown Manhatten and Brooklyn. Uptown, we had Deborah as our guide. She was absolutely fantastic, great sense of humour and very informative. Really, really enjoyed it and learned so much about the City. Going downtown... More

We booked some very expensive tickets to see a Broadway Show through City Sights NY located at Madame Tussards. We were repeatedly told the show was 8pm and this was the time written on our receipt. However the show actually stared at 7pm. We were told by staff that we would get our money back as they accepted full responsibility... More

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.
