My first visit will most certainly not be my last! This is one of the best curated museums in the city. The Zen-like Garden of Stones by Andy Goldsworthy is a wonderful foil to the harsh history on show in the galleries, as is Lox...More

I toured the Eichmann exhibit at this museum this morning. It was chilling and harrowing to see, such hatred and mass murder. This museum is located in a beautiful spot, at the southern tip of Manhattan in Battery Park City. There is a beautiful Garden...More

This exhibit clarifies and enforces Israel's right to bring this monster to justice. Eichmann had the chutzpah to ask for clemency from the court. Israel just released this handwritten document. Powerful, worth seeing exhibit

Great museum with lots of exhibits to look at, very informative and interesting with lots of true life stories. Inexpensive at $12 but if you go on a late night opening after 4pm it's free, small gift shop with lots of books.

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
