Took my nieces on two separate occasions this summer to the TSNY and can highly recommend. They had such a great time and said it was the best part of their NYC visit. Good location, great views, and incredible staff. Hal, Travis and Annie couldn't be nicer or more supportive. Hats off to you!!!

The good news: no midday sun (it's indoors). The bad news: no air conditioning. Also, the price is outrageously high. The class was very professionally run. While the newbies were getting instructions on how to do their first trick, they let students with experience go up a few times. The instructors were friendly and helped me improve. I had a... More

I did trapeze for my birthday one year and it was the most fun ever. It's a bit difficult and can be scary for someone with heights but it is really fun. I used to be a gymnast so it was awesome for me. It was $90 for the first time and gets cheaper each time you go. The instructors... More

I went with two friends to the Coney Island location expecting to have the time of my life. Instead, I left feeling let down and disappointed. The instructors are nice, but unless you whine or complain (not my thing) they don't give you anything beyond the basic instruction. I was told I had to listen. My friend however, got instruction...

Just drove by and saw the sign at Pier 40. Looked it up online and my wife and I found the first open class to sign up. This has to be a must do experience. I'm afraid of heights but who cares. We did it and it was the highlight of our trip. Hal and Travis (forgot the young lady... More

I did a class last January during a week long trip to NYC. The instructors were exceptional and it is a highlight of my travels so far. I would definitely recommend this! I did buy the pictures afterwards and did not feel the quality of them was worth the amount that was charged. I would recommend that a friend just... More

My sister and I surprised our teenagers, while on vacation, with lessons with TSNY. We didn't tell them until we arrived at the Coney Island location that they soon would be flying through the air. I think they were too stunned to take it all in at first but all four of them geared up and took the plunge. I... More

If you have ever wanted to feel like a bird or like one of the daring young men (or women!) on the flying trapeze, then this is the place for you!!! It is so much fun!! The instructors make you feel comfortable and safe and the experience is unlike anything else.

I'm a 43 year old mom of a 14 year old dancer daughter. We've done this trapeze school four times now - twice in NY and twice in DC. My daughter absolutely loves going at every opportunity and wish we had one closer to home. The instructors are always so supportive and encouraging - even for this old lady. It's... More

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
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 stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
