    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.

    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.

    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.

    Winnie the Pooh wasn’t there and the Rose room is closed except for small hours, but it is still so beautiful to enter for free and take a look around. There are restrooms and a gift shop. My favorite part are the lions out front. We sat with fellow artists (taking a class) while my daughter sketched and I enjoyed the weather, the birds, the scenery and people watching.

    My wife and I visited NYC this past summer for our wedding anniversary. We walked by and admired St. Patrick’s Cathedral during our self guided walking tour of Midtown. It is beautiful architecturally. We didn’t take the time to go inside but just took several photos.

    MoMA is a masterpiece! The exhibits are captivating, the layout is easy to navigate, and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. A must-visit for art enthusiasts!

    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.

    Anyone visiting New York City who is a die-hard fan of "Home Alone" can remember this place. It was my first stop when I was in Manhattan.

    Every time I walk down 5th Avenue, there's something new to see. This visit I was lucky enough to see the Fifth Avenue Blooms presentation of colorful floral sculpture offerings.

    The new Tiffany's looks splendid while St. Patrick's and Atlas still hold regal watch over passers by.

    A must do for anyone visiting. You'll be hooked, same as I was!
