    Lots of fun and endless exploration. My favorite part was the busking and little shops like Characatures throughout the park.

    This and the whole area is an awesome tribute to the people who lost their lives in an awful event. You will easily spend 2 or 3 hours here. They cover the event and the stories of various people from various perspectives in an interesting and informative way. It was very sensitively done. It was a sobering experience and I found it quite emotional at times. Highly recommended.

    If you like walking and looking at NY cityscapes, this is a must do. Very popular so there are crowds in summer months from what I can tell so not a peaceful serene walk but more like a gathering place for all walks of life experiencing this attraction. Makes me wonder if the people who live along this high line track gets any privacy. Something to do other than the usual Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building Times Square stuff.

    Absolutely amazing! The talent is unbelievable, and the storytelling is genius! The band, the dancers, and the actor playing Michael were just incredible. This show is amazing.

    We booked the top of the rock for 7.00 on a Monday evening. Queuing to get in was simple and efficient. No problems going up to the lower viewing platform. There's a cafe to buy food and drink if you want. No problems going up to the top viewing platform. It was fairly busy, but you could get to the edge and take in the view, with a bit of patience. Top of the Rock gives great views of the empire state, central Park and the south of Manhattan island. Highly recommended. There are plenty of places to get something to eat in the Rockerfeller centre.

    This trip is such good value for money . It includes Ellis island . We took the ticket to walk to the top of the crown . It was so exhilarating to be in the crown and look across to the city . We were all seniors so if we can do it anybody can . Steps to the crown were narrow and steep but they had little platforms you could step onto to rest if needed . Ellis island was interesting, it is always mention in books and films so it was exciting to see it . All in all a trip not to be missed .

    Whichever way you walk the Brooklyn Bridge you can guarantee great views and plenty of photo opportunities. We did it on a very hot day so take your time. The downside is there isn't enough benches to stop and catch your breath. Was glad to get to Brooklyn and have a well earned drink in the first bar we spotted. Would recommend but not for the feignt hearted. Free to cross too.

    The new AWESOME LIRR in Grand Central Station (GCS) in NYC!!!
    On the west/Vanderbilt St side of GCS, take the escalator below the Main Concourse to the Madison Concourse.
    Go through blue-green doors and turn right.
    The concourse is newly built, spacious, CLEAN, no stinky smell, with three NYPD posts & several cops, CLEAN restrooms with paper pads for toilets seats, shops, food, drinks.
    The LIRR Ticketing and Customer Service is at this level (3rd down from the Main Concourse).
    Take the deep escalator (seems to be 6-7 floors high) down (one each at 45th, 46th, 47th Sts).
    There are elevators between the 46th & 47th exits.
    Look for your track on the monitor which is accessible through another escalator down or up.
    Once in the platform for track 302, the first car is the tail of the train. I describe this so those with motion sickness could choose a seat facing the front.
    There is internet connectivity four levels beneath street level.

    Let’s hope LIRR and us, rail riders, maintain this wonder in NYC, especially the restrooms!

    The best views we found were from Ellis island or Brooklyn, just south of the bridge. Get the ferry from Manhattan to Brooklyn and walk back via the bridge.

    You gotta go and just walk around. I thought Chicago was big until I saw NYC and Times Square. First off, my family and I felt totally safe. From a 9 story Macy's to every food you can imagine, Times Square has it all. Definitely worth a morning or afternoon worth of exploration.

    Views of skyline from ferry are breathtaking! So many photos were taken. We all loved this ride and surprisingly, it is still free!

    My wife and I went to Bryant Park on the last evening of our wedding anniversary trip to NYC this past summer. It is an oasis in a bustling city. We enjoyed a dinner at Bryant Park Grill. It culminated an enjoyable visit.

    My wife and I walked over to Rockefeller Center from our hotel during our anniversary trip to NYC this past summer. We didn’t take the time to do a tour. We just walked around the plaza area and took in the sights. It was neat to see in person what we have seen on television for years.
