    Very good planetarium, we visited this place in June 2013. A brief on astronomical aspects must be given before entry.

    A fascinating experience. The only thing better would be a lecture from the Astro-physicists rock star, Neil deGrasse Tyson.

    I really enjoyed my visit. The planetarium show was great. I wish there were more astronomy exhibits then there was. If you are looking for a lot of space related exhibits and activities you will be disappointed.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
