We have spent a week here in New York and this little museum was by far one of our highlights. It was personal and inter-active - not commercial like so many of the other NY activities. The founder of the museum was there himself and...More

Gary Suson happened to be there the day we visited; he was the official FDNY photographer who documented and collected items during the recovery phase post-9/11. He gives an audio commentary on a device so you can self-guide at your own pace. The emotion with...More

Touching labor of love and tribute to the men, women, and dogs who worked during the recovery at the World Trade Center. Audio tour to accompany many photographs and artifacts from the recovery site.

The Ground Zero Memorial Museum has to be on the top of anyone's list who is thinking of visiting NYC. It is a very moving and respectful memorial for such a horrendous act of violence and tragedy. It has been so thoughtfully put together, take...More

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

Apologies. Just noticed your question regarding Ground Zero. If you get there early there's no waiting. Although we visited in winter so I'm guessing it's busier in July? As for time, we stayed about 2 hours but it's quite... More
