Went here as part of a package deal. The line ups are designated based on ticket type and we had to wait 20 mins (not the fastest, not the slowest). Figures are on display but info cards are not always nearby. The Presidents are crowded...More

Saw lots of great famous people and there was plenty of different themes of people too. It was over a couple of floors and I loved the ghostbusters area.

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors

the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop
