    The tour was really good, our guide (apologies I've forgotten his name!) set out to make it fun and I think he did a great job of that - even if most of it was bickering with the kids about basketball players/coaches.

    The venue is really cool, the variety of events they host is interesting and how they always have ice under the main floor ready for ice hockey kinda blew my mind.

    We had a couple of hours to spare on our last day in NYC and one attraction left on our Explorer Pass to headed off to Madame Tussauds. Itreally is prettyv cheesy, but there has been some effort put into grouping the celebrities and present them thematically. There is also a 10 minute Marvel Universe 4D movie which is entertaining enough.

    I’ve been looking forward to climbing The Vessel for months. It truly is an amazing structure. Sad to find it closed because of jumpers. Still is an incredible piece of architectural art. Worth a visit. I will be back to climb it eventually.

    Celebrated a family member's birthday by taking the family to see Aladdin. We have two 6-year-olds with us. They sat through the entire performance and both young and old enjoyed it. Seats were far right of orchestra, which we were a little apprehensive about, but was able to see the stage clearly. Would recommend grabbing a booster seat for the little ones.

    The Meatpacking District is close to the West Village and Greenwich Village and as a result this area has become quite trendy. One must see destination in this neighbourhood is the High Line which is an amazing urban garden however it gets very busy with tourists.

    There are plenty of places to get a drink and something to eat around here and I would recommend visiting the area whilst you are in New York.

    It’s NY’s theater district. How could anyone possibly think low rating? According to the internet, 11 of the theaters were built in the beginning of the 20th century. I found a very nice theater gift shop on 44th Street that I thought would have enough business to expand. Besides the typical t-shirt, sweatshirt stuff, a theater fan can also find things like sheet music books for all the musicals on Broadway and 42nd Street. I highly recommend stopping by Theater Circle Gift Shop.

    Went to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Enjoyed the play as well as the theatre. Leg room is tight, really tight, especially when you are 6'5"...pity the people behind me...sorry!!! Entrance was a bit confusing....we waiting in line outside (pouring rain but luckily there was a covering!!!) Once inside we waited close to a half hour before we were let in...the lobby got pretty crowded. They had QR Codes on the back of the seats and you could order food or drinks to be brought to you...pretty cool. Good views of the stage, sound was adequate. Personnel weren't all that friendly, but hey, we are here for the play. All in all, a nice venue to watch a Broadway Play.

    Plenty of shops, places to catch a bite to eat. Great place to get out of the elements. We came here for a restroom break and a little bit of window shopping

    It offers excellent views of the City. The open air outdoor deck offers unrestricted view of three sides. We can see the Western side (Hudson river & NJ) from the indoor viewing area. We can relax and watch the city sitting on the Skyline gallery seats. The glass floor (a small section of the outdoor deck) offers a thrilling view below our feet. Edge observatory deck is at Level 100. The ticket prices (~ $46) are at par with the rate we pay for the deck at 86th floor of Empire State whereas we need to pay $79 for 102nd floor access in empire State.

    One issue with Edge is that finding the entrance was a bit difficult even with google map. Once we enter, we see just a shopping mall without any information about the deck access. That makes us wonder if we have come to a wrong section of the building. Upon enquiry we understood that it was the right place and we need to go to level 4 to get the elevator to the deck. Reaching the elevator was also difficult due to the confusion caused by maze like route at level 4.

    Necessary sign boards should be placed.

    Beyond confusing!! Could us signs on the subway like the T in Boston that not only announce where your going but show you and it makes travel easier for newbies to the city.

    Incredible show in a beautiful venue...for both kids (ages 6+) and adults. You won't be disappointed. The New Amsterdam Theatre is located at 214 West 42nd Street in NYC. Booster seats area available for the littles. The theatre staff is incredibly helpful. Get your snackies in advance of the show, because the lines can be long at intermission.

    What an incredible show! The actors were outstanding, think my husband and I had more fun than my 3 and 6 year old- it was a spectacular opportunity to transport ourselves into “another land” for an adventure - so professional, well put together, with an excellent professional team.

    Went there for the NY auto show and it was very good. We were a bit disappointed that the restaurants on the lowest level were closed. The three food choices on the 3rd level were burgers, pizza or chicken fingers. There is also Starbucks and concession stands with snacks. Bathrooms are clean. I think there should be another
    coffee spot since not everyone can drink Starbucks.
