    What better way to start a marriage than to see that you as a couple are both part of a much larger world? My new spouse and I enjoyed the views from the top of the Empire State Building.

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

    Witnessing the Manhattan skyline is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for many people. it is breathtaking and one needs to see it at least once in their lifetime, no matter at what time of the day - in the early morning, on sunrise, at high noon, on sunset, or in the evening - it is always spectacular!

    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!!

    Saint Patrick’s Cathedral is really stunning. The sheer size and interior is mind blowing. Externally it is also very striking.

    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

    If there is a store you can think of, chances are Fifth Avenue has one!

    A great stroll with plenty of opportunity to see some of the iconic brands featured in NYC. Always a bit dangerous when carrying a credit card but good fun none the less!
