It’s a solemn experience. I liked the freedom to explore on my own. The audio commentaries that explained what was occurring in the pictures were very moving.

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
