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.

    What a great use for a derelict railway line. Some of the art along the route is a bit odd but keeps the walk interesting. I walked from Hudson Yard to Chelsea market which was really nice. Maybe not enough shaded areas for me as the Sun was quite intense that day but the whole walk felt peaceful which is always great to have in the middle of a city.

    This place was amazing. Very moving and really well done. Very respectful. Can't believe I got to hold things that were kept from 9/11. Highly recommend

    Very easy wayfinding and fun art in the elevators! We started out, as we often do, on the top floor of a museum. Here it's the seventh and beyond the interesting art inside there's a great terrace view of the city with several interesting sculptures to see. The hit of our visit was the large Edward Hopper (one of our favorites) selection from the permanent collection on view. Wonderful museum that offers something new every time we visit.

    I was amazed by this region. Instead of vast buildings, there are small, attractive structures. Friends Apartment is also located in this region.

    Unexpectedly peaceful way to get from our hotel in Greenwich Village to the 9/11 memorial. Beautiful, lots of trees and benches, several spots where you can sit and watch the river activity. Lots of runners in the morning. Various other small parks along the way. Busy bike route.

    Being a massive friends fan since it started. I was visiting NY for a few days and this was on my list to do. It’s a relatively easy walk to get to thanks to Apple Maps it’s just like it was shown on the show. Obviously I had to get the iconic picture

    Old Pier 55 imploded and redesigned into a garden and performance site. Regularly scheduled shows during the warmer months in amphitheater. Nice Hudson River views. Unfortunately New Jersey is on the other side. If you haven't been here yet, place it in your planner.

    The Museum of Illusions is a very short, interesting museum. It is small and will take you less than an hour, but I’d say it’s worth a visit. There are some cool photo opportunities that will mesmerize you in every way possible. Each room has a different illusion. Whether it’s multiple mirrors, slanted rooms, or just illusions in general. I recommend visiting here.

    This is a branch of the New York Public Library. What makes it worth visiting is that it looks like it had been a church in the past. The outside looks like a church and inside there is an interesting winding staircase with some pretty stained-glass windows. This is not really worth going out of your way to see, but if you are in the area, it is worth stepping inside for a few minutes.

    Pier 45 is a very long pier with a great view of the skyline. There weren’t many people there when I went, and it can be quite windy, but there is a great view of New Jersey as well as the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

    It really is an oasis of tranquility in the heart of Greenwich Village. So many beautiful plants and flowers. It was quite thrilling.

    We visited the Stonewall gardens as a family. Our daughter has a picture book on Stonewall, and it was important to us for her to be able to make a physical connection to the place. Suggest using the QR codes on the photos to look up who the people are as you walk along the fence.

    We saw the interactive Sweeney Todd here back in July. Truly awesome experience. Theater is located in a fun district, be sure to visit the Big Gay Ice Cream Shop.

    We were lucky enough to see the David Murray Quartet at the Vanguard. A fantastic evening of high quality jazz at one of New York's best clubs. The club is small & intimate but not overly crowded (despite being full the night we went). Service is great and drinks reasonably priced. Our evening at the Vanguard was everything we hoped it would be.
