"Fear Not!" (The "Official Story," however is a "Great Deception" - ref. David Hooper's film "Anatomy of a Great Dec..")

The 9/11 Memorial, while aesthetically attractive, is an insult to the memories of the NEARLY 3,000 who died during the "False Flag" attack in NYC on 9/11/01, Freunden.

A tour on the history of rockfeller center to avoid. A tour on the base and outside the premises with information easily finding in any tourist guide. Only for spend time waiting to visit the top of the building.

She took time to talk about the different attraction, gave us some special tips according to what we liked to do. Make sure you stop there before starting visiting New York because... More

FYI..We found this address on 7th Ave & were handed a flyer that said the Visitor Information Center had moved. They are now located inside Macy's at Herald Square, 151 W. 34th Street (between 7th Avenue & Broadway). We did not visit the location as we did not have time to get back on the Subway to go there.

Having been born and bred in Long Island City, Queens, New York -- 40 years worth -- I don't know that I ever visited the New York City's Official Visitor Information Center. However, I loved growing up in NYC; went to high school in Brooklyn and College in uptown Manhattan. I then worked on Madison Avenue for many years. My... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
