    The views are the best here. You can see uptown and downtown. You also see the Empire State Building in all of your shots!

    We started our four days in NYC with a trip to the top of the Rock. The views were spectacular and though I can't truly judge whether this tower presented the best vantage point from up high, I can certainly see why some people thinks it's best. We reserved a spot for the morning but I can definitely see why paying a bit extra for a sunset visit would be worth it.

    Fantastic, this was a once in a lifetime trip and the RCMH did not disappoint. Family and myself were very delighted to see the inside of this historic building and to see
    the dancers and hear the music inside this famed building. Loved it.

    Love the vibe at Bryant Park! A smallish park with good energy. Grab a chair at the many tables or take a seat in the grass. Plenty of food choices surround the park, including Whole Foods if you want to grab something for a picnic.

    This went beyond my expectations. When visiting the Treasures display, I felt like I was at the Smithsonian! I was stunned and amazed at some of the items on display! And it was free!!

    You must go in the submarine but attention at the doors (they are smallest like in the films) ! Very interesting.

    I always wanted to see if it looks as fantastic like we see on television. It more impressive in local than on TV.
    I really recommend the visit.

    Always packed 24/7 you must visit times square when you come to NYC. Be aware of the scammers like CD guys, monks wearing orange who try and hand you a bracelet, and anyone else that tries to talk to you is probably a scam. Be smart and keep walking.

    Cool, comfortable, too sprawling to cover without a rest on a few of the plenty benches provided. Also a great book/gift shop and lobby area. The art selections are exciting.

    Recommended by a friend prior to our trip to New York. Excellent Christmas show that we thoroughly enjoyed. Medium priced tickets but still had an excellent view on the bottom floor. Well worth a visit and will go again in future. Only negative is drinks etc are very expensive

    The Christmas Tree at the Rockerfellow Centre is world famous and e can see it from our New York office. Amazing sight and worth a visit.

    While tickets are a bit pricey, the overall experience was super fun. The SPYSCAPE museum offers some games you can do at home in advance of the visit, and the Batman experience has a section to play in advance of your visit and hours more of playtime for after your visit. The games may be a bit frustrating for younger children, but all-in-all it was fun to challenge myself to do well and to beat my friend. I would definitely be open to visiting again. I advise against getting VIP tickets - they are expensive and unless you want the nice baseball hat that comes with it. The bracelet that comes with VIP tickets is not worth the money.

    ...London, Paris, New York.
    Each of this world metropolis has its own famous department stores, and they have many branches all over the countries, but only one is the main from which it all began.
    That's the case with this Macy's at Herald square on 34th St, just a block from the iconic Empire State bldg.
    We didn't come to shop, just entered and roamed this huge edifice occupying the entire block. You can find everything you might think of, however cannot comment the prices - I presume they're higher than elsewhere.
    Therefore, it was a pure touristy visit for us after visiting the Empire.

    Went to see phantom of the opera.
    Purchased tickets in the UK, very reasonable so we were worried about the view etc.
    We should not have worried the seats were great, the theatre is well tiered so even me at 5ft 4 had no issue with obscured views.
    The production was fantastic and we had an amazing evening on Broadway

    A stunning theatre, and an equally stunning show. The theatre is bigger than most in new York and offers showgoers spaceous seating and unobstructed views. The staff are most friendly and were lovely to chat with, my viewing of wicked was made all the better because of this.
