Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Heard and seen so many films with the statue in, couldn’t come to New York and not visit this amazing monument, just a short ferry trip, walk around the grounds, to learn interesting facts in the museum, really good value for money 😊

    We visited at Christmas and the decorations for Christmas were amazing. There is every store you need or don’t need. especially high end! The building is beautiful and a fun visit even if you don’t buy. Plenty of places to eat and drink, convenient to subway. Convenient to Freedom Tower.

    A very nice area within Central Park, it has very lovely vibe and it's a good spot to relax.
    And there's people singing along John Lennon/The Beatles songs.

    Whilst in the financial district we popped on by to see the charging bull. We completely understand the significance of the bull and I’m glad I visited it. However be warned, the queue to get a picture with it is very long and I wasn’t willing to wait that long

    Beautiful statue in a lovely part of Central Park. Almost directly next to the equally impressive Hans Christian Anderson statue.

    I saw this tour while looking at a map of lower Manhattan. I dug further into this and booked a tour (only $3.00 for 3 people). This is such an important piece of history and the fact that it’s not advertised more is a shame. The guide/Ranger was very thoughtful and spoke with understanding, we were very happy that we could share this experience and felt this should be talked about more!

    In Depth Experience of 9-11; well worth visiting if passing through NYC.

    Well depicted events with great audio tours and history presentations/viewings.

    Can easily spend 2 to 3 hours in the 9-11 Museum.

    Fun statue to take a picture of but I was a little thrown off because I didnt know she was now separate from the Bull. We found her first and took pics, the line for the bull was too long

    Cleopatra’s Needle is similar to others you will see in many city’s around the world. Not sure how authentic it is and they mostly lack imagination.

    Dog statue in central park. It is situated in the park but shows up on the street on the map on TripAdvisor which isn't in the right spot.

    Rockefeller Plaza has so many different aspects and angles to it. Covers multiple blocks and of course the scented piece is the ice rink.

    Nice statue of Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen located near the Alice in Wonderland statue. A nice little corner of Central Park to visit

    Poignant and humbling.It certainly reflects the feeling of him and the rest who were caught up in 9/11 and indeed in all the tragedies of the past.

    Now known as The Survivor as he came through 9/11 with a few scrapes and scratches. It is a well modelled sculpture of an ordinary working man which is very poignant in this location so close to Ground Zero.

    It was a pleasure to come across him while just walking up the street.

    The Koenig Sphere is atop a small hill in the small Plaza Fountain Park, overlooking the reflection pools. It is the only piece of World Trade Center Art that survived the Sept. 11th attack. Now is a symbol of hope and resilience.
