    National September 11 Memorial & Museum

    4.5
    154 reviews

    Definitely worth a visit. I had been to NY a bunch of times during the rebuilding. Its amazing what they have done. The fountains outside are quietly powerful, creating a sense of endless falling inward that is beautiful and moving. We almost skipped the museum, as it looks really small from the outside. Glad we didn't - its massive, going ...

    Once the active intake for the countries immigrants it has now become a museum. It has directly impacted my family as it was home to my Grandfather for the first 6+ months of his time in the US after escaping from the Nazi work camps. This was an uncommon length of time but was the result of him stowing away ...

    Frick Collection

    13 reviews

    This wonderful museum has an impressive collection but even more impressive is the gorgeous home and internal courtyard that houses it. Unlike most museums, the collection is relatively small but the layout makes a visit here seem more like a visit to a rich friend's home than a trip to a museum.

You can rent a bicycle there which is the best way to explore the island. It is also fun for kids since you ...

    9 reviews

    The Dakota is a stop that you must make if you are on the Upper West Side or on the west side of Central Park. It is the home of many celebrities most notably john Lennon. The architecture is really interesting and the best thing is there is always an "old-timer" lurking around willing to give you the building's history ...

    Stone Street

    3.5
    3 reviews

    Cute little strip in the financial district. Touristy but a nice slice of old world Europe right in the middle of the financial district. A convenient spot to grab food or drink before / after visiting the Statue of Liberty, Staten Island ferry or Wall Street. Best when the weather is nice and you can sit outside.
