Boroughs Tour: Harlem, Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Coney Island

100 reviews
When travelers think of New York City, Manhattan is typically what comes to mind, but the city is much bigger than just one borough. On this busy sightseeing tour, you can see more as you're whisked to Queens, the Bronx, and Brooklyn—all in one day. From Harlem in Upper Manhattan to the Brooklyn Bridge, with an optional stop at Coney Island's iconic boardwalk, see more of the Big Apple.

I was here for a meeting last week. The museum is beautiful with historic displays of Queens and NYC. The museum is a little out of the way, and it is confusing to get there by public transport. Would I recommend? Yes, esp if you are in Queens.

My brother and I were in Queens for a couple of days 2 weeks ago, and we visited the Queens Museum one afternoon after lunch. At $8, the museum is a great deal, and I was impressed by our visit. When we visited, they had a few really interesting exhibits ("The Art of Rube Goldberg" and "Nicolas Moufarrege: Recognize My Sign"). Their permanent collection also included a lot of interesting works - including a panorama of NYC built for the 1964 World's Fair, a collection of Tiffany glass, and a relief map of the New York City water supply system. Our visit was great. The museum's collection and exhibits were interesting and out of the ordinary. I definitely recommend checking it out if you've never been before.

We went here because we initially needed a parking space for the unisphere, and ended spending an interesting 2 hrs here. The relief map of the entire 5 boros was very interesting. I liked seeing the way the city darkened and lightened up over the course of a "day " , and I also enjoyed seeing and pointing out the tiny details, down to the street near where I live. Liked the airplanes taking off and landing. We enjoyed the kitschyness of the worlds fair memorabilia; it was like taking a step back in time. Fascinating the way they viewed the future. Some, not all, of the art installations were interesting, such as the tshirt display and the stuffed Jean pants exhibit. Some, like the relief map oh the old ny water exhibit, were not. Especially noteworthy was the fact t that this building had been one of the worlds fair spaces and also was the site of the United nations in the late 40s, when some momentous decisions, including the parttion of israel,were made.

We went to the Queens Museum specifically to see the huge panorma model of the city of NY which covers about the size of a tennis court. The detail is unbelievable and the whole experience was magical. We were lucky enough to have the place almost to ourselves - the lady on the desk said people are generally not prepared to make the journey our from the city and take the 15-20 minute walk from the subway to the museum, which is a great shame. My 17 year old daughter cited it as equal first in 'best things we did in NY' (with The Museum of Illusions), and bear in mind we also took a helicopter ride over Manhattan! Highly recommend this wonderful place.
