    When living in New York, avoid as much as possible. However, as a tourist spend an hour and enjoy the huge crush of people and the crazy billboards.

    Central Park

    423 reviews

    Biggest park I've ever been in my life. So much to do here, so little time. I think I can explore this whole park for a whole week I'm here and still have stuff left to do. Yes it's that big!

    Empire State Building

    298 reviews

    Five stars for the pride lights and the roof deck. The audio tour, which comes with your admission is maybe 2.5 - the real gem here is the deck itself, 86 floors up and outdoors.

    Statue of Liberty

    235 reviews

    You can see Lady Liberty from our boardwalk a block away, but nothing is like visiting this iconic symbol of freedom up close. Just catch a 4 minute ferry at the boardwalk for a breathtaking experience at the Statue of Liberty.

    Metropolitan Museum of Art

    192 reviews

    My favourite!! Full of amazing art, and you enter with a donation. So no set price. Reminds me of the European museums - culture should be accessible and free to public. This one is a similar concept unlike Guggenheim which you need to pay to see.

    Rockefeller Center

    209 reviews

    Rockefeller Center is giant magnet of people going nowhere in one spot with whole lot of places to eat and shop. Disability Access is one way in and one way out no flow pattern to it, you will get you stuck. Just great to see but need to leave quickly as possible.

    High Line Park

    156 reviews

    The High Line is a great example of an original transformation of a useless abandoned structure into a public place that everyone enjoys. They turned an elevated freight rail line into a park-like walkway stretching for many-many blocks. It’s beautifully landscaped - there are flowers and bushes planted along the walkway, benches are conveniently located to take a break and ...

    American Museum of Natural History

    145 reviews

    This museum is huge to visit and it has lots of people in the place and is easy to get lost and turn around in this place. Disability access is difficult need to watch for where the elevators are located what direction you’re going. No disability parking and curb cuts are difficult to navigate around and it’s across from Central ...

    National September 11 Memorial & Museum

    154 reviews

    The lines moved well, even without prearranged passes you can get online. Free memorial that asks for $10 donation does a full, airport-like scan for each visitor. On a windy day, the waterfalls spray the stones and visitors. I wasn't a big fan of this memorial, something I'm glad to have seen however. Museum will open spring 2014.

    This is one of my favorite spots in the city. It is located close to several attractions and gives you a break from the hustle of the city. I love to people watch here in the summer, grab a coffee, sit near the fountain and just watch the world go by. in the winter it's a great place to ice ...

    FAO Schwarz

    87 reviews

    I think every part of the store is amazing. I love the collection of every stuffed animal known to man and the giant keyboard. We actually had to return a toy that didn't work, and even though it had been a year since we got it as a gift, they exchanged it for us without hassle!

    New York Public Library

    72 reviews

    I cannot express my love for this place enough. I love libraries, especially ones with beautiful architecture and a rich history. This was one of the highlights of my first trip to New York. I came during the anniversary last year and they had an exhibit on the history of the library and some of their collection on display.

    Home to the largest enclave of Chinese people in the Western Hemisphere, Chinatown reflects supreme authenticity of the Chinese culture imported from the motherland miles away. Vibrant signs, store and restaurant fronts, and displays fill the streets luring locals and tourists to embrace some of China without a passport.

    There is only one NYC & there is only one Broadway. There is nothing like it anywhere! Although Broadway is a lvery ong street, most people think of Broadway as another word for NYC theatre. Broadway is comprised of approximately 40 professional theaters. There are several ways to secure tickets when you are already in NYC. We sometimes go to ...

    Union Square

    A quintessential stop during any extended visit to NY. Nice park surrounded by good architecture. A "love it" if you include the weekend farmer's market.
