Manhattan Skyline

Reviewed By shanemoore2018 - New York City, New York

Just looking at the Manhattan Skyline makes me proud to be a Newyorker. The size of the building never fail to impress.

Green-Wood Cemetery

Reviewed By Br00klynB - Brooklyn, New York

Green-Wood cemetery was, in the mid 19th century, the top tourist attraction in New York (although at the time Brooklyn was an independent city from New York). There are hundreds of famous people buried there and ornate gravestones and mausoleums, many designed by famous sculptors and stained glass designers such as Tiffany. It also has a great view of New York harbor, as it's the highest point in Brooklyn. It's worth a day trip from Manhattan (and you can grab some great Chinese food in Sunset Park).

Gantry Plaza State Park

Reviewed By Alyson W - Oakland, Maryland

We were visiting over Christmas holiday and took a walk down to the park. It is very well kept, clean and felt safe. The Queensborough bridge lights were beautiful with the church bells ringing in the back ground seemed almost magical. Would like to return when it's a bit warmer and stay longer.

Hoboken Waterfront Walkway

Reviewed By Tim121home - Southampton, United Kingdom

It’s a refreshing change from the hustle bustle of Manhattan to the relative calm of Hoboken and the views of the skyline are amazing. Visit in the evening for the illuminated view of Manhattan. Take the PATH train or very speedy ferry service.

I booked a doors off flight last year to take this April. Doors off flights have currently been suspended as Flynyon we’re responsible for the recent helicopter crash into the Hudson River where five of their customers sadly lost their lives. I have attempted to...MoreHi Daniel, Spoke to customer service department. They'll be getting in touch shortly. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Can You Escape LI

You and your team get locked in a fully themed room. The clock starts as soon as you enter. You have 60 heart pounding minutes to solve the puzzles, find the clues, and get out. You need to think outside of the box and think fast. Can You Escape? Many will try, few will succeed.

Karli was amazing as a game master. Staff was super friendly and encouraging as usual. Second time going and I can't say enough good things about this establishment. It is a MUST if you are in the area!

Reviewed By Kerrie C

I’m not a huge fan of art galleries but I can imagine if this is your thing you will love it. Lots of great displays, sculptures, portraits, landscapes and modern art. Maps available to help navigate this museum with ease. Spent an hour here but you could spend much much longer. Audio guides are available.

Brooklyn Heights Promenade

Offering magnificent views of the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge, this 1/3-mile-long sliver of green overlooks Brooklyn's busy industrial waterfront.

Reviewed By Larry S

For the best views of Manhattan this is the place. During the warmer months it gets packed and comes to life. Becoming a very trendy place to be seen with loads of shops, restaurants and bars opening. Don't forget Grimaldis and Julianas pizza.

Central Park

For more than 150 years, visitors have flocked to Central Park's 843 green acres in the heart of Manhattan. Since 1980, the Park has been managed by the Central Park Conservancy, in partnership with the public. Central Park is open 6 am to 1 am daily. Visit the official website of Central Park to learn more about Park happenings and activities and to learn how you to help Central Park!

Reviewed By MikeP1515 - Springfield, Massachusetts

The park is big, with beautiful walkways, scenic views of the city, and lots if green space. There are also lots of things to do, like the zoo, ponds, and wildlife watching (mostly birds). We got food at the little place by the sailboat pond, and it was mediocre. All in all a good park, but I think I need to revisit when the weather is warmer to get the full experience.

The National 9/11 Memorial & Museum

Through commemoration, exhibitions and educational programs, The National September 11 Memorial & Museum, a nonprofit in New York City, remembers and honors the 2,983 people killed in the horrific attacks of September 11, 2001, and February 26, 1993, as well as those who risked their lives to save others and all who demonstrated extraordinary compassion in the aftermath of the attacks.

Reviewed By Nicolle_H11 - Derbyshire, United Kingdom

This place really hits home with the impact that was suffered that day. Just visiting the memorial itself is an experience but the museum goes into great detail. It had all been done with class and the way they show tribute too the people that tragically died that was very respectful, to the extend that when it is someone's birthday they put a while rose in there name on the memorial, a lovely touch that I am sure the family will appreciate. I would definitely recommend visiting and the museum too and not to rush through it, its a lot to take in.
