You’ll also have included entry to two of the most popular NYC attractions, the 9/11 Museum and One World Observatory at One World Trade Center. At the 9/11 Museum explore the story of 9/11 through interactive technology, archives, narratives and a collection of artifacts. 

Finally, ascend to the top of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere in less than sixty seconds. Explore three levels filled with innovation and inspiration – and some of the most stunning views in the city!

The better bus

Numerous hop-on / hop-off buses operate in NYC. Of the 3 I used, this was the best. Knowledgable and humorous tour-guide, and many stops at strategic areas. The other company has a mobile app which makes it easier to track, but had fewer buses in...More
