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.

    This place is awesome. Great time to spend and do some interactive challenges. The squid games option was so much fun. Both G-unit and Robert were so friendly and helpful in explaining everything. I would definitely recommend this place.

    My friend was visiting the 9/11 Memorial and I couldn’t bring myself to visit. Decided to start the morning here. Starts out with a great movie and then you move through the exhibits until you end with the main attraction. They did not tell us that we could take our time to view the exhibits so I rushed through thinking that I had to be at the movie at a certain time. The exhibits were wonderful and wish I would’ve spent more time there. At the end the staff said they must’ve forgotten to tell us we could hav taken time with the exhibits. Definitely a fun thing for anyone to do for an overview of NYC. An amazing movie both in the beginning and the end. Even more of a bonus since it was Broadway week and the tickets were half-price.

    Roller skating in the spring! Yes, they convert the ice skating rink to roller and then play roller disco, which I love, on the sound system. Such fun and the crowd loves it. Plus lots of rainbow flags for June, looks great. One of the best urban design places in the city.

    Visiting Central Park with our kids (15, 8) and riding the carousel was a must! $3.50/ticket and it was totally worth it!
    Easy to find and purchase tickets from the booth, quick service

    Had a great experience here. We are on a trip to NYC and decided to do a little climbing before we caught our train home. Gym staff were super friendly, gave us a quick tour and were around if we needed anything. Gym itself is great. Really clean, well set up, and they even have bins of chalk available which was great, since we didn’t bring any. They were re-setting one wall when we were there but that still left us with lots to climb. Excellent variety in routes too, some nice easy ones to make me feel good about myself and a great selection of harder routes to choose from. Would absolutely recommend stopping by!

    I almost made this a three star review, but chose to go with four stars after my interaction with the staff and hearing more about their mission.

    I expected a bit of a larger, more open space where I could cuddle with cats (with their consent of course). But this space was quite a bit smaller, and there were around 10 people in the space, all of them vying for the attention of a few cats. It was crowded and busy for my personal taste.

    That’s not their fault. And the employees told me weekdays are much less hectic (I’m just not usually in the city on weekdays).

    All of the employees are super nice, and you can tell this place prioritizes feline well-being above all else. They explained to me that their cats come from a cat rescue in Bowling Green, KY, which funnily enough, I live near. They told me they have almost a complete turnover of cats every two weeks. They have very careful adoption procedures in place to ensure the best placement for the cats.

    Please note weekends are reservation only, weekdays it’s recommended, but not required. And there are rules. Vaccination, no shoes, don’t pick the cats up, don’t wake the cats up, etc.

    This wasn’t my style, but I respect their mission and the employees are great reps for the organization.

    Great experience! We enjoyed playing the online game . I enjoyed these puzzles because they were innovative and challenging. The interface worked well and we were able to easily join two other players in different locations. I highly recommend it

    Came here specifically for the kitties and I've been to one other kitty cafe and this was a bit different. The space for the kitty cafe was split between an upper and lower room which weren't that large. When I arrived most of the kitties were napping, so...took a few for some to wake up. Sirena was a young kitten and I just so happened to get a toy that she loved, so I got to spend most of my time playing with her.

    The number of people in the kitty section vs cats seemed to be skewed and most people didn't get to interact with the cats. I believe all of them were open for adoption and if I didn't already have a fur baby, Sirena would have come home with me.

    Just be aware it may be hard to spend quality time with the kittes based on the number of people in the cafe already.

    Firstly yes it is far too expensive but from the point of view of a couple that don’t have kids and wanted to just have holiday fun it was a great way to spend an hour.
    Loads of games, the prizes weren’t terrible and it’s very clean with nice staff.
    We went 3 times over the week here and spent $20 each time.

    We went in the bar once and that’s what dropped it to a 4 star. The lady behind the bar was absolutely lovely but another told us off for eating a cookie we hadn’t purchased on site which seemed overly militant when we had just spent a lot on drinks and it was empty so nobody could see. She then told us we needed to move seats as they were expecting a party in. We did and an hour later still no party had arrived so seemed pointless.

    The arcade though - loved it. Just know if you have kids it will be costly.

    I wish I could upload a picture of this beautiful building near the East River. For $75 a year or $10 a year for seniors (62+) you have access to a gym, pool, lockers, showers & different classes every day for free.
