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.

    Having your Ticket a head of time is a plus! Very well organized on moving people along.... stop and get your picture inside the hand of King Kong, some great pictures here. I was impressed by the way they had the history walk through. Of course viewing from the observation deck was amazing to see the city.
    Impression was very clean and organized to move people along without feeling rushed.

    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.

    Great way to see some spectacular views of New York. Probably the best view over Central Park. There is a new attraction called The Beam but unfortunately it was out of order when we visited.

    The Manhattan Skyline is a very impressive view and reminds me of when New York features in films and tv shows. It was great seeing this view for free from the Staten Island Ferry.

    A spectacle you have to visit. Over the top as expecred. Just watching people is fun enough. A few avoidable touristtraps.
    Go visist a Broadway show. Its worthwhile.

    One of my favorite parks in New York. You can find an activity every weekend from 7 to 9 pm on Friday and Saturday. You can have a great time with the Bank of America's organization. Has a picnic area.

    Stopped in on a stay in NYC. My wife is a book and movie nerd and LOVES this library. She has never been here and cried when we arrived at her Mecca. I was skeptical but not so much once we went inside. This place is amazing! The architecture and history is unbelievable. We self toured the entire place for FREE and loved it all. If you’re in midtown this is definitely a must see. Highly recommended!

    You need to go to see it at least once. The Rockettes are around the corner. There’s shopping, food, people watching. Fun to see!

    Been there many times and always look forward to my return. The peaceful atmosphere adds to its beauty as does all the altars and statuary.

    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!

    Sat on the Bridge for the first time. Good sound and no one able to stand in front blocking our view. Telemonitors were small so not best view. Always a slow exit with the stairwells

    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!

    First time to see the Rockettes, we read to arrive an hour early, and I can understand why, ( the crowds, and TRAFFIC).
    We even stayed n Mid Manhattan, but badly made it on time.
    Wow the production.
    It was spectacular. ALL the way though!
    I wish we didn’t live an the west coast, I would go every year!!!
    It was worth every dollars we paid!
    It will get you in the mode for Christmas, 🎅 for sure.
