    Best park in the world. You can spend days and hours here and every time you walk through it’s a new experience. Love grabbing breakfast and coffee and taking a walk. Sometimes through the Rambles and sometimes by Strawberry Fields. Love people watching and love watching the rowers on the lake. Beautiful scenery and perfect picture taking.

    Just breathe taking autumn experience.
    Central park is huge. I wasn’t able to walk true the entire park, but what i saw was amazing.
    Great experience and feeling.
    So peaceful and same moment exciting.
    Great runaway between all this tall buildings.

    Hands down, one of the best parks that I’ve ever been to.

    Central Park is not only big but also that something for everyone. I love to just walk around and take in the sights.

    It’s a beautiful park with lots of activities and many scenic spots that are just simply breathtaking. It brings me back to many scenes I’ve seen in movies.

    Central Park is definitely a must when I visit.

    Definitely one of the best parks I have ever been to! It was just like how you see it in movies/shows. You will find people walking their pets, local/street musicians playing their instruments, some come with a band. There’s eating options and toilets all around the park. It’s very clean and nicely maintained too. Hands down one of the most iconic places in NYC.

    Central Park was ? it’s just like the pictures you recognize where the movies take place and it brings you back makes you feel part of the moves, for some reason the street noise is also blocked you can forget your in a city ? unless you look at the buildings, but it’s beautiful the birds ? chirp, and dogs ?walked the horses ? also get their exercise it’s really cool to see a very active park, I thought it would be big empty, and scary but it’s a nice busy, tidy, clean and it was easy to find the things I was looking for!!

    It’s impressive to look out and see the line of trees against the buildings on the other side!

    Took the center tour. Did not realize the number of buildings and the art adorning them. Very insightful. Then to the top of the rock. Three observation deck levels. What an amazing view. And, from the very top level, the view is 360. Great way to spend an afternoon in New York City.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Ed Rigsbee (9 months ago)
    Everything from the entrance to the ride to the top was welcoming and impressive. Original art deco finishes still impress. Took a tour, well worth the money.

    Views are incredible and the three decks though busy were not overly crowded.

    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Vadim Yudkovsky (6 months ago)
    It’s absolutely chaotic and the crowds are crazy around Christmas time. One who lives in NYC normally avoids places like this but seeing this damn tree is a magical experience that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Especially when your with kids and it’s their first time, it’s like your enjoying it all over again. If you have t seen the tree at Rockefeller center you have to make a stop and enjoy all the other fun things to do and see in the are just know everyone has the same idea around this time.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Mike Ortiz (5 months ago)
    I highly recommend the guided tour or to read about the building before visiting. There are 3 platforms to got to, each offering great views over the city.
    Take some time to visit the building and admire the art. If you don’t want to pay for the view there’s a lot to see downstairs, for free.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Pascal Tesch (3 weeks ago)
    Going to New York is synonymous of this place, specially if you are going in the Christmas – New Years Eve holidays!
    This is such a beautiful building and complex, there is too much history in this place. I am pretty sure that you will recognize every corner with some of the movies you might watched.
    Going in the winter season will allow you to ice skating the Rockefeller’s ring, just underneath their Christmas tree; this is a magical and remarcable experience, go for it!
    They also have two very nice restaurants next to the ring where you can eat and enjoy the day or night watching the skaters.
    This place has to be in your New York’s bucket list ?
    100% recommended ?

    The museum spaces are so clean and well kept. Well planned out and managed. Lots of staff available to answer questions. We had a really nice time and the views from the flight deck are amazing. Be sure you ride the aircraft elevator if given the chance. The space shuttle exhibit was amazing. I had no idea it was that big and the way you enter just makes you realize it quickly. Overall a great experience. Parking can be a walk so be ready for that.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Brian Kuchmak (9 months ago)
    Fantastic museum. Plenty to see and for kids to do. They’ve done an amazing job of trying to give a glimpse of the history of the ship, those that served, the conflicts and a variety of aircraft.

    The staff and volunteers were very knowledgeable and helpful. There is a lot of interactive games for kids and enough to keep you there for hours. I spent 5 hours here and saw just about everything on a quiet day. In fairness, I also took a lot of pictures so it would take most people a but less time.

    The curators have done a great job. Absolutely loved it.

    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Ian (5 months ago)
    I would highly recommend visiting the Intrepid museum. This is great for kids all the way up to adults. Going into the submarine was absolutely mind-blowing. Getting to see the spaceship on the upper level was also a great moment. So much history in one area. It can get very hot, so make sure you stay hydrated. I would recommend arriving early and doing the submarine first. The line can grow pretty quickly with a wait time of up to 45 minutes.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Joey Gibson (3 months ago)
    Intrepid is an amazing experience. I loved the submarine as it is very rare you can get to see inside of a submarine. The ship is well maintained and it’s good to see the shuttle also. This is a place you must visit if you’re in ?NYC because the experience is on another level. You can witness history in a raw form. The line for submarine can be long but it’s worth the wait.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Chandra Bhanu Solanki (7 months ago)
    This museum was amazing. A lot of stuff to see, very informative, they have a whole interaction type room where you can check out a bunch of different aircrafts and things of the sorts. The tour through the submarine was impressive. Definitely worth the trip. I can’t wait to come back and visit again with my children!

    First school trip there and it was worth it. It was cold, so they weren’t many people there. It’s completely different with so few people around. The live seal show was so much fun for the kids. We saw the penguins and sharks.
    The otter exhibit was closed. They had a fun interactive area for the kids to play. I would definitely go back again on a warmer day. Also the food at the Cafe was very good but a little pricey.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Mike Flow (a month ago)
    My parents really enjoyed this place. We had great time. They have sea lion show. It was great. And they have a shark tank tunnel. That is very cool. And also they have 4D show. That includes to the general ticket. Only difficulty was parking. Aquarium has paid parking. I think it’s $18 for 3 hours. But the day we went it was full. We had to drive more than 30 min to find a place to drive. So make sure you go early to find a parking place. Specially in summer time.
    ✭✭✭✭ By Kalhari Jayasinghe (3 months ago)
    Great experience!!! The best aquarium I’ve ever been too. Your able to get up close and person with all of the aquatic animals. The aquarium itself is so beautiful and the employees are extremely kind and caring. The food court is a bit price but the food is delicious. Many public bathrooms spread out throughout the aquarium. And the sea lion show spreads a good message about pollution well also making and interesting and quit hilarious performance
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Mvdgh.1010 (7 months ago)
    Visited the NY Aquarium and it was quite empty which was great because we took our time visiting the exhibits. The highlight was the playquarium center which finally opened. There are different activities and interactive play areas inside the center. Also different animal exhibits which was nice. They have a touch tank too but it was closed. Their 4D show was entertaining.
    ✭✭✭✭ By NT JAD (11 months ago)
    A great place to bring kids of all ages. Great spaces especially if you have small children and need to not lose them. This was my first time here since they finished the construction and it was really nice.
    The aqua show was fun and brief, just enough for a 2 year old but it made my 7 year old excited.
    Bathrooms were clean and abundant, we didn’t have to exit any exhibits to find one and the changing areas were available and clean.

    We hosted our corporate Q2 event here and everyone had a blast! Leading up to the event, staff was very responsive through email and answered all of my questions promptly. Upon arriving to the event, we were brought to our private room almost immediately and started gearing up the teams to enter each room. Avery and Jagger were so attentive and nice. We had a great time joking around with them and taking photos. They were just so nice and pleasant to be around. They let us be goofy and loud and truly enjoy ourselves 🙂 A great experience and highly recommend!!!

    I went to beat the bomb today and had an amazing time. Ace greeted us, explained everything and was a doll. He’s friendly, professional and a nice. Pleasure at the front desk. He kept us abreast on things and got us in. The experience here was just plain fun. Team work is highly recommended. I can’t wait to go back and do it again!!
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By 2611Lover (a year ago)
    This is a must visit place if you’re in ny. It was definitely one of my favorite escape rooms I’ve ever done. As soon as you walk in, you’re immediately greeted by the kindest workers. They were so helpful throughout the entire process & made us feel very comfortable & relaxed. The place is so cool & the rooms are challenging yet exciting. Definitely plan on going back soon!!!
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Siera Brinkerhoff (9 months ago)
    We usually do escape rooms when we visit a new city but fancied something different and beat the bomb definitely delivered! Like your own video game it was a tonne of fun, excitement and required brains and little bit of physicality. Fuming we were so close to finishing but came up short – however we still had the best time. An experience I won’t forget! We played as only two of us and it was great as everything was tailored to the number of people in your team so it wasn’t an impossible feat!
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Bex Hand (3 months ago)
    Even if you beat the bomb you still get paint! The games were all fun and we would definitely do it again. Must have great team work. Wear athletic clothes. You will get super hot and there is a lot of moving.
