    I've been waiting to visit the museum since it opened. It didn't disappoint. Our tour guide Lee was amazing (even being a young 23 year old that wouldn't remember 9/11). We visited on a Monday, being as it was summer it was VERY busy, I believe I heard all the tours for the day were full. Make sure to book ahead.

    How do you write a review of the Met? This museum has such a variety of offerings. The Egyptian exhibit is outstanding. Go through the whole exhibit to get to the Temple of Dendur. Beautifully displayed in a glass walled room with a stunning view of Central Park. The American Wing is inventively designed. Nothing beats walking up those magnificent stairs to the classics of European painting. Great collections of Medieval and Islamic art. The museum has done a great job of creating events and fun areas. Not sure if they still do it: there used to be the first Friday of the month was free and with a string quarter's sounds resonating in the entrance area. There is a fun rooftop area for hanging out and drinks.

    I've run and walked around Central Park many times. This time was convinced to hire an escooter, amazing.
    Such a great fun way to see the Park. 2 hours was enough to see the main attractions, and stop for a drink.
    Fabulous Park, just been upgraded in my opinion.

    I was very impressed with the information and trail up to the top viewing platforms.

    It was the perfect way to spend my birthday.

    This was one of my favourites in New York, this definitely had the best view. We used our New York Passes and was worth the money.

    Purchased the cruise and admission from Statue Cruises which is the only company that actually goes to the island. Ellis Island is also include and both were great to visit. We spent probably 3 hours between the two including cruise time.

    Must do for anyone visiting NYC, we walked half way across and back again. Would definitely walk there and back if time wasn't an issue. Got some great photos.

    … on the NYC Ferry from Queens.

    TIP
    To see the skyline in its fullest grandeur, go on one of the ferries- inexpensive enough, and fun

    Lovely walk through the highline, an old disused railway taking you all the way to 1st avenue. Was a gorgeous break from the rest of the city

    We loved this experience. Compared to Top of the Rock, this was hands down SO MUCH better. We loved the 360 degree views of the city from any angle. The elevator ride was cool. Everything was clean, modern and we really enjoyed our experience.

    Classic stop when visiting NYC. The beauty of the place never gets old. Easily accessible through subway, walk, or train. Plus, there are quite a few restaurants available on spot.

    Beautiful surroundings for a fabulous museum! This is a treasure trove of medieval art. We spent the better part of a day there. Pack a bag lunch, as we found the little restaurant expensive & not very good—& we aren’t hard to please!

    They had an art exhibit of sorts - water shooting up in circles. You stand in the middle before they start, and friends can take pictures while you're in the middle but not really getting wet.

    Never been to RCMH before. I loved it. The inside of the building was a iconic and beautiful as the outside. Went in April to see Olivia Rodrigo there and what a show!

    This was a beautiful park located behind the NY public library. The treeline surrounding the perimeter secluded those in the park from the bustling outside crowds and shops. Large lawn with a stage appeared to be a perfect setting for small performances/movies.
