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.

    I would recommend to visit Empire State Building as it gives you a great view and you can see the whole city - different parts, statues, main building etc. Good to understand its position etc. The service was very good as well. Not so many people there in March.

    This is one of the best attractions if you want to see NYC from above. You are not rushed to leave and there are many benches to sit on and enjoy the view.

    Popped over to Roosevelt Island on the cable car which was just $2.75 each way. It only took 4 mins to get there and we were able to have a lovely stroll to take pictures of Manhattan’s coastline. It was a very peaceful place. We sat in the sunshine and listened to the hubbub of manhattans busy street s whilst peacefully relaxing.

    Broadway shows are a must-see when visiting New York City! The talent and energy on stage are truly electrifying, and the productions are a feast for the senses. From beloved classics to modern hits, there's a show for everyone. Our family was blown away by the performances we saw, and we loved the variety of shows available. Theaters are conveniently located throughout the city, making it easy to plan a night out. We also appreciated the safety measures in place to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience. Broadway shows are an iconic part of New York City's culture, and we highly recommend adding a show to your itinerary when visiting the city.

    On our way to the library we stopped at the park. There were attendants monitoring the restrooms and we were completely surprised to find them so luxurious and well maintained. The park was full of people enjoying many different activities.

    From start to finish this was excellent. It was a cold but sunny psi the views were superb. All the staff were friendly. My daughter was wearing a Birthday Girl headband and everyone wished her a Happy Birthday. Stayed up there for an hour enjoying the views . We went at 9.30am so it was not busy .

    We had to return twice because it was not open on. St.Patrick’s day. The building and the interior were beautiful but we especially wanted to see the reading room and were told we had to do a tour which did not start for another 2 hours. As looking inside would only take 2 minutes we were not willing to wait. This was very disappointing and should be more visible on websites so that visitors can plan more accordingly to the times of access.

    We visited this church on st.Patrick’s day after the watching the parade. It was beautiful so many stained glass windows. Well worth a visit. It’s free but a donation is always welcome.

    The museum itself is never too crowded and has a variety of art on display that is both history and unique and thought-provoking, which is the reason I gave a "very good" review.

    If you don't get tickets online beforehand, they have kiosks to purchase tickets so you don't have to stand in line. I was surprised by how many people didn't take advantage of the nearly 20 kiosks available. They're very easy to use.

    But, and I have no idea why, the floor in that museum is not kind on the feet. I spent two days walking around NYC and my feet were fine, but just after 20 minutes of walking around the gallery on the 4th floor my feet were screaming. I feel so sorry for all of the employees that have to stand on that floor all day.

    Great game and the Madison club was amazing and I got a good hat. Sad that the Knicks lost but a great game by Julius Randle.

    Especially at Christmas time, its near the rockefeller centre and the lights make it special. Obviously touristy but a visit is a must. Great photo ops and generally a happy vibe

    Fifth Avenue is the most expensive shopping street in the world. Department stores like Saks Fifth Avenue are full of desirable, high fashion merchandise. You can walk down Fifth Avenue to satisfy your desire for titillation, even if all you want is to window shop. If you want some retail therapy, there are plenty of things to chose from.

    A long trip from Australia to see this show which was on my bucket list and worth every penny and travel hours to get there. If anyone is thinking of seeing this show, do not hesitate it is soooo good.

    Visited with my 18 year old son and we both enjoyed

    Easy to find. Had a sightseeing pass that allowed us entry.

    Plenty on people from around the globe. Room of presidents and world leaders from the past.

    4D cinema if your a Marvel fan

    Passed a few hours and we had fun
