New York Catacombs by Candlelight

Perfect for history lovers, this tour of the historical Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in Lower Manhattan invites you into the catacombs, allowing you to see its pipe organ and venture to parts of the building that are normally closed to visitors. Beat the crowds on this tour and enjoy a personal encounter with this New York landmark.

World famous Rich and Famous were there with same shape,size, form but no actions being the beautiful replica made up of wax so perfectly. We took photos.It was a bliss moment in our life and thanks to the Great Museum to depict such photos which would had been quite impracticable otherwise.

The first step for most seasoned tourists is The Visitors Center. It tells you what to visit, the hours the site is open, latest museum exhibits, latest Broadway shows. It's truly a fountain of information!!!

Tried to visit today but it's closed with no warning. What will happen to that elegant Embassy Theatre lobby, the New Years' Ball, those lovely costumes, and films shown? They also had the only public restrooms in the area and a great gift shop. Farewell to another icon of old Broadway!

The official sites states: Times Square Museum & Visitor Center The Times Square Museum and Visitor Center is now permanently closed. Please refer to the rest of our website for details about Times Square and The Times Square Alliance. Please make sure to see any of our Public Safety Officers in Times Square with questions or for suggestions. I haven't found any info on future plans. As a NYer, I often took out-of-town friends there for an orientation before sending them off on their own for an adventure in the big city. It'll be missed.

We loved the Times Square Visitors Centre. There isn't that much to see and do there, but the two things that drew us to it was the ability to be part of NYC's NYE celebrations. The ball that drops at midnight from the previous year is in the Centre so you can see it up close. It's huge and its great to sit there for a few minutes and watch it go through the various colour sequences. The other thing we wanted to do (well me, hubby's just a good sport!) is that you can write your hopes and dreams on coloured post it notes. These are then placed on the hopes and dreams wall and just before being cut up into the confetti that is sprinkled over Times Square once the clock strikes midnight. Now that's how you get to be a part of NYE in NYC without standing in an adult nappy for 15 hours! There was also a couple of other little displays and a big wall of information brochures, but that's it. Well worth the visit to see the ball and be a part of the confetti though, so take 10-15 mins out of your time in Times Square and pay it a visit.
