  • There's a lot of fun things to do one of them being Ripleys. If your going to do it save money with the city pass and do more than one thing especially with a whole family.  more »
  • We have no nephew should go to the full here Zola went in HA HA HA. Nothing too good for kids. Me and my acquaintances just as he did. But a nephew like that just looked too psyched I am thinner. Children's paradise. And photographing street people enormously to wish, just like there are lots of camera. ^^

  • This "Museum" is at the center of New York. We decided to enter and input are about 25 euros. Inside references are explained through posters appear. There is a museum with cheetos, animals with several heads, drawings of people with long hair or long nails... most things are to see and in others you can interact putting yourself in the sites and taking you pictures. Almost at the end of the activity there and tunnel that moves and can be the most fun of the visit. It seems to me that it is very expensive for what it offers and that really things that are displayed are not so spectacular. He would not again

  • Very interesting place to visit. Had very many interesting artifacts and topics that were not normally known. Enjoyed the visit.
  • This place was awesome. I was such a fan of the show when I was a kid and it was fun to see everything. The museum felt like it went on for forever!! Totally worth it.
  • The place brings in busloads of kids who then run riot. The staff doesn't interfere or ask the chaperones to control the kids. Go late in afternoon or later, or stay away.
  • Good place but horrible staff. The management should really learn how to be courteous to guests. The worst possible place to interact in New York. Avoid it if possible.
  • Best place for curious and discredited people. It's worth visiting. I recommend.

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.
