Would be far better to have info officers on the main streets and intersections so they are visible and helpful

I received friendly, helpful service and was in and out quickly. I picked a map and a suggestion and was on my way in less than 5 minutes.

The renovated Visitor Information Center looks more like an Apple Store than a government office. They have 3 large touch screen table tops that implore Google Maps to show you what attractions, restaurants, and cultural sites are where. Using a coaster you can load all of this information on to a giant fly-over screen or have printed with valuable coupons or even have it sent to your mobile device. There are also a wide range of flyers and brochures you can take with you and you can pre-purchase tickets to some attractions. The best part? There is a local New Yorker there to help you...a friendly smiling face to give you all of the guidance you might need before heading back out to the hustle and bustle of the busy NYC streets.
