    Incredible architecture inside this multi-purpose building at the World Trade Center complex and includes a high-end mall but also serves as a transportation hub including the NYC subway and PATH trains to New Jersey. This is a photo worthy stop if coming to Lower Manhattan to visit the 9/11 Memorial or the One World Observation Deck. Quite amazingly, the structure's orientation serves as a lasting reminder of the attacks of September 11, 2001. It is in alignment with the sun’s solar angles on each September 11, from 8:46 am, when the first plane struck, until 10:28 am, when the second tower collapsed. Its central skylight fits this alignment and washes the Oculus floor with a beam of light.

    Decades after completion, Woolworth Building is still an encompassing presence in Manhattan. The iconic skyscraper has long been one of the most recognizable buildings in New York. Unfortunately it is not open to public.

    Nephew wanted to visit it as had seen the movie before we went. There are a few signs outside the building and a good photo opportunity but not much else. However it did make us go and re watch the films and i had forgotten how much fun they wore so the trip was definitely worth it on that front. Its a stop on the way to something else type of attraction as opposed to a special visit

    St Peter's Church on Barclay Street in Manhattan is just a short walk from the 9/11 Memorial and Museum located at the site of the World Trade Center. My wife and I visited New York as part of a larger cruise tour and really enjoyed visiting this wonderful church. Initially it has a more modern feel than many similar churches but it's atmospheric inner spirit was uplifting.

    This place is so serene! The employees are very attentive and friendly. I enjoyed the cold plunge more than I expected! The amenities in the shower rooms exceeded my expectations. Can’t wait to visit again. Phones aren't allowed in the pool area.

    This should be on everyone’s checklist! If you are visiting NYC, this is THE place to go to whether you are serious about art or serious about having a good time around some awesome art. Well designed gallery, courteous and fun bartenders, servers and door men/women, eclectic and classy guests and most of all talented artists painting right in front of you while collaborating on their work with you. The creators Anthony and Adriane are extremely hospitable to each and every guest…you feel like you’ve known them forever. They are also super passionate about what they do so much so that their energy is contagious. Their unique concept hooked me from the first time I attended and made me come back the next two Fridays to see the piece as it evolved over three weeks. Previous artists are frequently on hand mingling and answering questions personally about their artwork created right here.

    Tickets are very reasonable and the free drinks and party snacks are definitely a plus (hard to get anything for free in NYC these days). If you are visiting NYC and want to have an enjoyable night out while getting a taste of some great artwork from artists around the globe or if you just want to make new friends in an intimate, non-pretentious setting, you simply HAVE to check them out! A must see!

    The venue is small, but the show and food are great. We enjoyed our wedding anniversary present. Highly recommend if you are not living from paycheck to paycheck.

    The most enduring photo gallery in NYC, a true institution. Always something worthwhile on the walls and you can often encounter the artists who are on display, which affords an opportunity to learn about their work.

    Tribeca festival pretends to be open and accessible with fans but it's just not true. At least not anymore. They act like elitists and fans are just little peons to them, not worth any time or effort. I did not have a great experience at the festival and it felt like being a fan of RD was this huge no-no. i've had friends who have worked there who have said the same. MOST come to the festival because of RD!?

    Before I went to the festival this year, I didn't get a response with a few simple questions. I emailed again and the person who answered a week later seemed annoyed. Won't be going again

    The Bean was located under the Jenga Building at 56 Leonard Street in Tribeca in Downtown Manhattan. This was a free attraction. We spent about five (5) minutes with a walk around this structure. It was a bit tight to walk through the back side of the Bean as the Bean is located below the Jenga Bulding. We enjoyed seeing our reflections and this structure allowed for great photographs. The Bean was neither too hot nor too cold to the touch. There were not many people at the Bean when we visited it. This Bean was similar to its Chicago counterpart, but the Chicago Bean was better.

    The Flea is now at 82 Reade Street. This was our first visit for an engaging and interactive show. The theatre is intimate and unpretentious, allowing for the experience to enable a close connection to the story and performers. Very cool.
