    This museum is a hidden gem. Well worth the time. Get the audio tour. Make a reservation to go to Edison's home as well- The Glenmore Estate - which is just down the road. My only criticism is that the Glenmore tour was only 30 minutes. I think it could easily be 45-60 minutes as there is so much to see and stories to learn.

    The zoo was cleannnnnn. A few of the animals were out in the vet clinic but we still saw a lot more animals, after you've walked around the entire zoo make sure to take a ride on the train.

    The reserve was at its utmost beauty with fall foliage in November. The view of the Manhattan sky line is spectacular. The memorial is extremely sad for those that remember the horrific day that moved and changed the world. The gardens are beautiful and the atmosphere is tranquil snd solemn. Theres plenty of parking and a restaurant there.

    The reservation is quite extensive. The reservoir park in the reservation is just relaxing and beautiful perfect for outdoor activities- walking jogging. There’s a seasonal boat pier and a nice kiddie park. There are picnic tables but no venues opened out if season.

    Before 911 this was the "it" place to go for NYC views. Most incredible view ever for miles around. After 911 it was bitter sweet as it took way too long for the new building. Like 10 plus years of pure political BS. Now it became a true memorial, with blowing flags, memoriam plaques, pictures and more of the same. Still a great view, but the Twin Towers were the ultimate edifice of all time.

    Plenty to do here. Swan rides. Picnic areas. Available parking. Pirate Park is terrific recreation of a pirate ship, with all the nooks and grannies. Sure to keep children occupied. Lots of climbing areas as well.

    The Sea Turtle Recovery building is located within the Essex County Turtle Back Zoo next to the Touch Tank across from the outdoor Amphitheater. The center has a nice viewing area of the sea turtle recovery tanks with turtles recuperating from illness or injury. This non-profit organization is doing outstanding work rehabilitating threatened and endangered sea turtles found along the New Jersey shore

    Luna Stage presents consistently solid, professional theater. The productions we have seen have been original, thoughtful, and well-acted and produced.
