Very fun place for the family, especially the youngest. I highly recommend this to all. As you can see from the photo, it is very stimulating for children/. Casual dress and be prepared to enjoy.

Just come back from visiting this museum & wow, so much to see, a very emotional place to go, but it is a must.

A sobering, factual reminder of the fate of so many people caught in the 9/11 atrocity. It is primarily a walk and read exhibition all displayed in the bowels of the North and South towers.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
