    I've only been to Manhattan once and most of my time was spent in Central Park. My absolute favorite spot was the John Lennon Memorial. I got my picture taken there and immediately had goosebumps..

    In the middle of a busy day of walking I found the perfect place to doze off. Even if you just want to see the hair included in so many movies, it's definitely worth stopping here.

    One of the most interesting museums in New York City and the best place to take your kids aside from, perhaps, Liberty Science Center. My favorite two parts of the museum have always been the dinosaur exhibits and the hall of meteorites.

    A lovely tribute to John Lennon, located on the west side of Central Park, near the Dakota. At any given time, it's adorned with flowers and messages for John.

    An absolutely beautiful building with one of the greatest Art collections in the world. Aside from all the amazing art through the ages(the ancient works are my favorites) I love the Armor section and the Egyptian Temple of Dendur.

    1 review

    Central Park, with its winding, tree lined paths, occasional open fields, classical bridges, ponds and fountains, has the remarkable ability of making you forget that you are literally surrounded by one of the largest cities in the world. I don't know the story of the Central Park Dairy but I've been there before and I can tell you that it ...

    Open 365 days and free to visit. Designed by the famous architect Ralph Adams Cram (who did Princeton, West Point and many other well known Neolithic masterpieces). Episcopal church. Nice interior although much smaller than St Patrick neighbor, but good for a quick stop in on a cold and blustery day. Cram is celebrated with a feast bay by the. ...

    Attending one of the late show tapings takes a little luck and patience. Tickets are free so there are tons of people requesting them either online, through phone, or in person. It's a lottery basically so cross your fingers and hope for the best. If you are lucky enough to nab a ticket act excited and be outgoing when you ...

    Where Broadway tangentially bumps into Central Park is Columbus Circle, a beautiful area full of life. From the horse carriages to the Shops at Columbus Circle, the area is full of life. The statue of Christopher Columbus serves as a landmark for the area, as well as a nice place to take some photos.

    Really great views of Manhattan. I spent an afternoon up here waiting for the sun to slowly set. It's definitely a great first stop if you're new to the city. Seeing it all at once from such a high vantage point helps add perspective to the adventuring you're about to do!

    Oh, how I miss the FAO Schwarz that used to be in downtown San Francisco. Some of my greatest childhood memories were there. I feel sorry for any child who doesn't have the opportunity to stand wide-eyed in a huge toy shop. It's like Willy Wonka's factory or Zonko's Joke Shop except, you know, non-fictional. The FAO Schwarz in New ...

    This is one of my favorite spots in Central Park. Tons of movies have been shot here, and it's easy to see why. The Bethesda Fountain is a lovely calm oasis from the hectic noise and constant stimulation of New York City.
