    We visited during the day and thoroughly enjoyed the site. You are able to step out to a viewing platform which was great.

    The skyline was amazing. We done a day time trip to the Top of the Rock and that gave a wonderful view of all the main buildings and sites. Also a night time trip up the Empire State Building which was great to see all the coloured lights etc. I would recommend both trips.

    It could be a bit tricky to find a ticket office for access to the Top of the Rock. When you go down staircase and at the end of it, you should turn left , not right as security guards advise you at the entrance. Door to the ticket office will be a few feet away from staircase on the opposite side of hallway. Rest of experience was amazing. Must see while in NYC.

    Fantastic, this was a once in a lifetime trip and the RCMH did not disappoint. Family and myself were very delighted to see the inside of this historic building and to see
    the dancers and hear the music inside this famed building. Loved it.

    If visiting in the summer try Monday nights for the free open air movies (no bookings needed). It’s a nice atmosphere with a mix of native New Yorkers and tourists. Along with surrounding cafes there’s also small stalls selling snacks and beers, plenty of seating and free WiFi in the park.

    This went beyond my expectations. When visiting the Treasures display, I felt like I was at the Smithsonian! I was stunned and amazed at some of the items on display! And it was free!!

    This cathedral imposes an inescapable deep sense of spiritual awe even in the agnostic soul. One cannot help sense the presence of the divine and supernatural in the mere enormity of the building much like what one often experiences in the great expanses of nature like the mountains or oceans.

    Traveled to New York from UK for a concert at MSG. Well organized to get in and find you seats , but very expensive when buying drinks.

    2000 people all trying to get out at the same time is not fun, but every venue in the world is the same

    I always wanted to see if it looks as fantastic like we see on television. It more impressive in local than on TV.
    I really recommend the visit.

    This is truly an experience to behold. It is busy and packed with people. Not much to do, but there is quite a bit to see! Grab food on your way in or out, there is not much to eat there.

    I wish they’d warn people it’ll close 5.30 pm so that they don’t have to be literally KICKED OUT the museum without being even able to visit the entire museum

    Recommended by a friend prior to our trip to New York. Excellent Christmas show that we thoroughly enjoyed. Medium priced tickets but still had an excellent view on the bottom floor. Well worth a visit and will go again in future. Only negative is drinks etc are very expensive

    If there is a store you can think of, chances are Fifth Avenue has one!

    A great stroll with plenty of opportunity to see some of the iconic brands featured in NYC. Always a bit dangerous when carrying a credit card but good fun none the less!
