Visited the Empire State building. It was a great experience. The views were great, and the building was a lovely building. Definitely recommend buying ahead tickets. The outside view is very big and wraps around building, so you have 360-degree views. Would recommend as a one time visit. Just did 86th floor but was good enough.

Love it here. In a departure from an old movie, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan's "Sleepless in Seattle" ended up together here. The top of the Empire State Building, it's just like in the movie, and I noticed the elevator doors, they're all the same. It's amazing. Love it here, it was a snowy night when we arrived, it was very cold, but it didn't matter. We also took a composite photo on it with the Empire State Building. It was fun. It's corny and funny, but happy. The staff is friendly and efficient.
The Empire State Building stands as an unwavering sentinel of New York City's skyline, a symbol of the city's indomitable spirit. Despite passing it countless times, its allure remains undiminished, a testament to its enduring charisma. Its Art Deco design, a marriage of grace and grandeur, evokes a sense of nostalgia, transporting us to a bygone era of architectural opulence. Amidst the ever-changing urban landscape, the Empire State Building stands as a timeless icon, contrasting the sleek minimalism of modern structures. Its presence serves as a reminder of the city's rich history and cultural tapestry. The building's observation deck offers a breathtaking panorama, reaffirming its status as a vital thread in the vibrant fabric of New York City, an everlasting monument to human ambition and creativity.
My best friend and I did the sunrise experience - while we balked at the steep price tag, we quickly discovered it was well worth it. You really feel like VIP as you enter the world-famous Empire State Building at 5am. The staff are friendly, relaxed, and helpful. My coffee and croissant were just the right morning snack while we roamed the rooftop balcony, looking out at the waking city below for a solid 2 hours. I can’t wait to do this again.
The Empire State Building is an absolute marvel. Its iconic silhouette gracing the New York skyline is a sight to behold. The observatory provides breathtaking panoramic views that capture the city's essence. The experience is seamless, from ticketing to the elevator ride, all well-managed. The historical significance and architectural brilliance are awe-inspiring. The attentive staff ensures an informative and enjoyable visit. While peak times can lead to longer queues, the view is worth the wait. The Empire State Building stands as a testament to human achievement and innovation, deserving of a resounding five-star rating. It offers an unforgettable journey through time and a vantage point that encapsulates the heart of New York City.
My favourite attraction in NYC. Soaking in the lights of NYC 86 floors above is a singular experience.

Would recommend
- going when NYC is safely past summer but not freezing.
- choosing a less popular day (if they even exist).
- catering at least an hour if you are alone, and 1.5hrs if you are with family. You'll need to queue to get in and take the lift up and down.
- watching the sunset is great and gives you the best of both worlds. If you must choose, go at night instead of during the day.
Frederick Douglas Home NM. Home has actual artifacts & as it was when the Douglas s lived here. Guided tour gave excellent history. Visitor Center has good introductory film. Glad I came back

Staff is super awesome. Make sure you ring the bell in the front door to get in.
This place has an interesting story, and if you really want to appreciate it, I would Google it first. You will find that there have been accounts of paranormal activity since the 1800s. Nothing paranormal happened to me unless you count the fast that my autistic son started saying "no fun" and refused to go into some rooms other than that nothing. It gives of a sad vibe, and you can feel some stuff that was not good happened there. I did not know details of the history before going in, and I wish I did, I would have made arrangements for my son.
Iconic place to visit! The building brings and amazing city view! It is incredible how many years ago the engineer built this.
It is very organized, and with very good service.
My first time was 12 years ago, at that time the city did not has the others big buildings with roof view options. Now is easier visit and without long lines of people
Another bright star in the National Park Service's collection of historic sites. The house is surprisingly large with a commanding view of Washington. The volunteer docent gave us a detailed and lengthy tour of the house and always answered our questions. As to be expected in an old structure, people with mobility issues will have a hard time accessing much of the site. The visitor center is on the smaller side with a minimum amount of information and not very much to engage younger visitors. The introductory film is well done and there's a nicely stocked bookstore and gift shop. You will have to drive through a small neighborhood to get to the site so use a GPS or good nap. There is convenient parking next to the visitor center.

Very comfortable place . Huge parking space also there is nice view you can enjoy because easy river is here
A great attraction with tons of historic artifacts during Theodore Roosevelt's life. The museum provides great insight to the enigma of Theodore Roosevelt, and fully discusses Roosevelt's legacy in America. There are some interesting facts present, such as Roosevelt never allowing himself to be photographed in his tennis uniform to preserve his manly image.

The tour was decent: the recreation feels historic and is a glimpse to how upper class life was in 19th century NYC.

We had a wonderful tour with the executive director- so informative and we learned so much. Definitely a must visit if you are in DC
Had some time to spare and happened to be a few blocks away. Wish I realized the last tour was at 3:30 to go upstairs but I still got a chance to browse the memorabilia.
Entering my 2nd decade as a DC tour guide, I have visited the Woodrow Wilson House many times, but have been reticent to write a review for fear of revealing my Go To 'hidden gem'! Guests rarely know of its existence and always come away in amazement at the meticulous preservation of Wilson's last home and also leave with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the 28th President and (in my opinion) his grossly underrated 1st Lady, Edith! The house is an absolute treasure trove and time capsule of the 1st quarter of the 20th Century and has remained such because Mrs. Wilson lived there, changing very little, until her death in 1961, oddly enough on what would have been Wilson's 105th birthday.

My most recent visit to the Woodrow Wilson House was to attend a lecture, featuring the famed scholar of international relations, Dr. Mary Habeck. Dr. Habeck offered incredible insight into the current crisis between Ukraine and the soon-to-be re-Soviet Union. Listening to such a smart, concise explanation of the long history of this conflict (dating back almost 1000 years) was extraordinary enough, but to witness/ participate in this breakdown of such a momentous current event - in the drawing room of a Nobel Peace Prize winner - was borderline surreal!

The Woodrow Wilson House receives zero government money and is part of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and does not shy away from Wilson's more controversial aspects. Other historic venues should take notes! Whether a history buff visiting Washington, DC or a local interested in current events through the prism of our past, put the Woodrow Wilson House on your list of things to do - I'm pretty sure they wouldn't mind if you made a donation, either! There it is: the cat is officially out of the bag!
After being closed for 3 years since the pandemic, Frederick Douglass house opened on the 4th of July. The Frederick Douglass House, located in Washington, D.C., is a significant historic site that provides visitors with a glimpse into the life and legacy of one of America's most prominent abolitionists and orators. As a visitor to this landmark, I had the opportunity to explore the house and learn about Frederick Douglass's remarkable journey. Here is my review, highlighting the pros and cons of the Frederick Douglass House.

Pros:

Historical Significance: The Frederick Douglass House holds immense historical value. It was the residence of Frederick Douglass himself from 1877 until his death in 1895. The house offers a unique insight into the life of a key figure in the fight against slavery and the struggle for civil rights. Exploring the rooms where Douglass lived and worked is a powerful experience.

Informative Guided Tours: The guided tours at the Frederick Douglass House are exceptional. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides provide detailed explanations about Douglass's life, his contributions to the abolitionist movement, and his impact on American history. They bring the stories to life, making the visit engaging and educational.

Authenticity: The Frederick Douglass House has been meticulously restored to reflect the period when Douglass lived there. The attention to detail is evident in the furnishings, artwork, and decor, transporting visitors back in time. This dedication to authenticity enhances the overall experience and allows visitors to better understand Douglass's living conditions. They also updated the HVAC!

Cons:

Limited Accessibility: The Frederick Douglass House is a historic building, and as such, it presents some accessibility challenges. The structure has stairs and uneven surfaces, which may make it difficult for visitors with mobility issues to navigate. While efforts have been made to improve accessibility, including an elevator, some areas remain inaccessible.

Limited Parking: The availability of parking spaces in the immediate vicinity is limited, which may require visitors to park further away and walk a considerable distance. It is advisable to plan accordingly and consider alternative transportation options such as public transit or rideshare services.

Relatively Small Site: The Frederick Douglass House, while historically significant, is relatively small in size. The number of rooms accessible to visitors is limited, and the overall tour duration may be shorter compared to other historical sites. Visitors seeking a more extensive exploration may find themselves wanting more.

Frederick Douglass House is a must-visit destination for history enthusiasts and anyone interested in learning about the life and achievements of Frederick Douglass. While there are some drawbacks to consider, such as limited accessibility and potential crowds, the experience of exploring this historic site and understanding Douglass's impactful legacy is undoubtedly worth it.
Loved touring the long ship Wavertree and the smaller Ambose. Got great pics and learned a bunch. A memorable and enjoyable experience with a dose of history and nostalgia. Glad we took the time to do this short excursion.
Mr Nick the guide gave us an enchanting glimpse to a life well lived - Teddy Roosevelt. A must visit for history buffs. It’s a well maintained brownstone house. Keep an eye out for the collectibles around the house.
There is a lot of history at this site but house was kind of boring and visitor center was small for this very important historical figure.
Really nice free tour offered by the National Park service. The only way to get up into the house is via a tour otherwise you can pop in and look at the museum off the lobby. The museum talks moreso about Theodore Roosevelt's childhood and doesn't focus much on his adult life. A large portion of the tour talks about the evolution of the house and its demolition. With that being said this home is a replica that was built in the 1920s shortly after Theodore Roosevelt's death by his family. It is really quite the place and our tour guide was very informative. If you have mobility restrictions it is important to note that the tour consists of many stairs and I am unsure of any elevator access being available. There is however a small chair lift in front of the building that would at least allow you to visit the museum portion of the home.
Iconic of course and a must visit for the first time tourist. However, be warned there are long queues and it gets pretty crowded so it's tough to get a good view especially during the golden hour. Not worth using the picture package. Just soak in the view at night time. The building itself is very art deco and impressive. The staff is very nice.
Buy tickets in advance.
Soak in the view.
Stroller friendly access to the deck.
They have a nice detailed history of his presidency and a great collection of political cartoons that I'm a fan of. I learned a lot well here it's definitely worth a visit
I visited this museum 8 years ago. It's a very cool place and free to visit. Just works a few days per week.
Beautiful Caribbean cultural fest this past weekend

Beautiful and informative experience
Super interesting and a very quick visit is all that is needed... This was once the White House so that's real history.
For those that enjoy US history, I can’t recommend this location enough. To visit the birthplace of such an important and iconic figure is really inspiring and a unique experience for New York.

I suggest signing up for a tour which shows you various parts of the house.

The staff are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about all things Theodore Roosevelt.

If you’re lucky, you can also go into the library room if a curator is available!

Took my kids here when they attended a summer class at the Corcoran. I asked a lot of questions and for some reason they asked if I wanted to be a docent. I was flattered! Then I learned the ghost stories. Wow. They had a hard time keeping docents because they had to lock up at night by themselves. Not something many were willing to do. Wonderful house and great history!!

Amazing views of the bridge and Hudson River!
I booked a tour online and really enjoyed myself. The exhibits are arguably a bit more on the (end of the) history of slavery than Woodrow Wilson, but the two are intertwined. Shortly after I got home, I discovered that my guide had sent me a postcard answering a question I had surprised her with during the tour. Note that the tour does not start at the house itself, but rather a short walk over at the gift shop.
We visited this home a few years ago with my young daughter and loved the experience! The home was so beautifully preserved. I was so happy to see that a museum was right next door, and I’m even more happy to learn that it is currently under renovation and will be open sometime in the spring of 2023. I would love to go back and see it, again! I definitely recommend it for anyone interested in history, and I hope more classes will take advantage of a trip to this historical home.
A hidden gem that’s not talked about in blog posts or YouTube videos about visiting NYC (at least the ones I’ve seen). We got there totally by accident and it turned out we got a guided tour. To make it even better - all of it was free.

Really worth visiting - the guides (rangers) know a lot about T. Roosevelt. Plus, the house itself is a nice museum. You can feel the atmosphere of the 19th century.

All kids need going to this this plase
There also needs to be a Pharmacy Billing and Reimbursement certificate, Pharmacy Insurance Reimbursement, Pharmacy specialist certificate such as Pharmacy Gastroenterology Certificate, Pharmacy Urology & Nephrology Certificate, and Pharmacy Anesthesia Certificate. I had compared this organization to other Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technician organizations. This one is easiest and the second best options for Pharmacy Technician continuing education and certificates. I am post secondary graduate student with two Associates of Applied Science in Medical Billing & Coding Technology, Medical Office Technology, and a Bachelor of Business Administration in Healthcare Administration. As a scholar and educator, I will be returning back to school to complete my pharmacy technician credentials and other Allied Healthcare Professional Credentials.

Nice
Friendly and knowledgeable guide. The museum feels very historical, and it is small. You can view everything in 10 minutes.

An amazing preserved historic rural home in a now fully urban neighborhood.

There is a great podcast for kids about Louis Latimer from, “who, when, wow.”

Fantastic historical place to visit in DC! Our docent was fabulous. Despite living in the area and taking tours for years, I picked up even more insight, knowledge, and awareness today. — Tips: 1. Purchase your ticket online before you arrive. 2. Plan for an hour visit. 3. Take advantage of having a docent share insight about each room.
Really great 1 hour guided tour. Highly recommend to learn about this former president

While I was shooting these photos that I just posted, a dog barked to me for no reason, and his masters didn’t say anything to stop his dog nor apologized to me. What mean people and animals they are! Bad experience for the neighborhood.
We stopped here for our ghost tour. Took lots of pictures to see if we could see any. Lots of death in this home. Highly recommend in you are in the area.

Beautiful views of the mighty Hudson River and Bear Mountain Bridge
Lovely building from the outside. Will try and see the inside and learn more about the history. Nestled between large public housing building ball fields and various private apartment buildings. Harkens back to earlier period in Flushing history.
A delightful, free, experience. Short and informative. The visit around the ship is included and that makes it worthwhile.
The exhibition is limited but I learned a fair bit.
There was a small tribute to Eric Carle in an annexe.
The ship has good information panels and it is fun to walk around below decks and above.

Excellent 45 minute tour. Tons of great facts about DC. I’d definitely revisit.
Took 6yo to tour the tall ship Wavertree. A step back in time. So impressive to see the scale of ropes and masts up close.
Free! Knowledgeable docents. A great interactive, educational activity while downtown/seaport area.

Park is nice but the Fort is only open Saturday and Sundays 12:00-4pm or by appointment. Park grounds are open 6am-9pm. Also know that it is a 3rd of a mile walk to the old fort from the public parking area. It is paved the whole way but there are some moderate hills. Park has restrooms and a good amount of parking. Great place for a walk especially since it is a home for NYPD, FDNY, USCG, and the U.S. Army Reserves, so I'd imagine it's very safe unless you're the mischievous one.
This free museum in Seaport is not too large. They said that flooding had ruined much of the walkable space and that repair efforts were underway. From what they had available, it was neat. There's a boat tour at the docks that they suggest visiting.

Lovely time at Trailside Museums & Zoo, even on a cloudy, chilly & breezy April Sunday, with some animals temporarily off exhibit. I find it easier to see & appreciate the landscape with its history, biomes, & geology when the leaves are off the trees. Kudos to the Palisades Interstate Park Commission for the efficient use of limited resources: The museums' buildings & interpretive exhibits are well maintained for their age. Still, their age is very obvious, and their media & content are in desperate need of updating: The scientific & historical research behind many of them is out of date, there is cultural backwardness in some of the interpretive text, and unhelpful spelling & grammar errors intrude. Look forward to returning in other seasons and paddleboating, seeing river otters, and exploring the abundance of trails. $10/car to park, $1/person donation suggested.
While the South Street Seaport Museum is very small inside and everything can be read in 30 minutes (which I did,) the standout of the museum are the two ships that you can take guided tours on for free.

The whole museum was free on the day that I visited.

My husband and I went on 2/19/2022 and toured both the Wavertree and the Ambrose Guide Ships. Both ships are very different and if you could only tour one ship, go with the Wavertree.

The Ambrose is a tour of a guide ship, which is a ship that acts sort of like a lighthouse to guide ship's past low or rocky spots and into NY harbor. Before seeing the Statue of Liberty, people coming to the US would have first seen the lights of the Ambrose.

The Wavertree is a large metal cargo ships but with traditional sails as that we associate with pirate ships and Peter Pan. The hull is overwhelmingly large once you get in and many people were saying "wow!" once we climbed stairs down into the bottom of the ship.

This is a free museum but it's not appropriate for small children as it's exclusively reading based inside and the ships are not accessible for strollers or wheelchairs, and are generally not safe for kids who run around and climb on things.

It’s one of the best place to visit during summer. Crowds are usually less if you go there on weekdays.

Love this place! Usually has a nice crowd of people, but because of COVID it was almost empty. But still a nice place to come for leisure, admire the two old ships that are docked here. They have two nearby restaurants where you can sit and eat outside. But this place is a very historic part of New York City. You should definitely stop here when you are in New York City.

The tour last one hour, but arrive about 20 min early to view a short video summarizing Wilson’s life and presidency. A knowledgeable docent leads you through the sitting room, dining room, bedrooms, and kitchen. Artifacts, furniture, and portraits are explained in each room. Be sure to check out the interactive room at the end where you can sit at a desk or couch and try on spectacles and hats while posing with a phonograph and old telephone from Wilson’s era.
Wonderful museum!. A must see. It's an easy 10 minute walk from the metro. It's a slice of American & personal history in quiet and affluent neighborhood. Enjoy the walk. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and welcoming. Highly recommended.
We had our dog and didn't schedule a tour in advance so make sure to do that. However, we were able to view a short video and see some interesting facts. We were given the ability to drive up to the house and observe from the outside. I really appreciated that.
Great organization supporting pharmacy advancement
The prospect park alliance had a Autism play day today and I was told that they host one once a month. They gave families free entrance to the Lefferts Historic House and taught children how families lived in Brooklyn back in the 1730’s. We washed clothes in the same manner they did back then. They had stilt walking which helps dig the soil. They had make your own soap. Me and my daughter made a orange oatmeal scented soap. The historic house has a three dollar admission but this event was free and they do have a tip box to help the program run. There is a bathroom in the house. We were there earlier than the food kiosk located next to the carousel so there wasn’t any food options available until around 12pm. I ordered me and my daughter Uber eats to the park. The historic house is located in the children’s corner where they have the carousel,boat house and prospect park zoo. I had a good time!!
He invented the precursor to air conditioning, which you have to appreciate in the summer. The displays are interactive and staff friendly
This out-of-the-way gem is worth hunting down! I won’t ruin the interesting history of the place; you should go find out for yourself. It is FREE and very kid friendly - not one of those historical homes where every room is roped off. You can touch, sit on, open, and explore pretty much everything. Don’t miss it!
Great historic house.......made in 1871....
You need to come and see it....
The Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP) says that their mission “is to be the collective voice of student pharmacists”, but the APhA will take students’ money who pay to join and use that money to lobby against better working conditions for student pharmacists and residents.
This museum is very educational and interesting. I would definitely recommend as a place for people to visit. An African American inventor that made great contributions to science and technology. They a have a Tinker Lab summer camp for kids which is great for the little innovators.
This place is amazing, very educational. Went to the Lantern event, and made lanters for Chinese New years (Year of the Pig= Prosperity). Just this place out!
A short tour but worth the trip a great inventor who must not be forgotten

So interesting. Much history. Make the visit if you have time.
Its a great place to remember New York as it once was. The place features a working garden, historic artifacts, period rooms and exhibits. Visitors are encouraged to play with traditional tools, toys and games, and engage in historic activities such as candle making, sewing and butter churning. Its great for children to experience being in this house and also to learn the history behind this place.
The house is only open to tour with a staff member. Tour is an hour. It was very interesting and the docent was knowledgeable. Made history come alive with little known facts and stories. Well worth a visit.
An interesting historical place. Here you can see how Americans lived a long time ago.
Frederick Douglass home was such a Fantastic visit. I took my children as sort of a mini field trip to tour the grounds. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and informative about the timeline of Douglass life when his incredible Family lived in the home and on the property. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the home had to offer, it was marvelous to have a window back into time in such an extraordinary way. I recommend all families near and far visit this national treasure!
Its a piece of history right in the neighborhood, i highly recommend going inside and taking the tour!
The exhibits could use some work. They don't really convey what life was like.

Highly recommend paying the $10 Tour, $5 for students. They give you all the details that you wouldn’t know without the tour.

Tours are self-guided.
Garden open, weather permitting.

The President Woodrow Wilson House offers an intimate look at one of America’s greatest Presidents, statesman and Nobel Prize winner. View authentic objects from the White House and elaborate gifts of state. This Embassy Row house is a living textbook of “modern” American life in the 1920s from silent films to flapper dresses and zinc sinks.
Fun and informative interactive museum with many quality artifacts. Staff is super friendly and there's alot to see!
Nice little museum, perfectly located at this old neighborhood, that keeps the history of the original port of the city of alive. The boat is included in the ticket price and is a must see. People on board will gladly answer any questions and will give you a small tour. Great experience if you have never been on this kind of boats before. The rest of the museum will give you an idea of the immigrant experience when they were arriving in the city, but it's better if you visit Ellis Island, so that you get the whole picture.

A well preserved piece of Brooklyn history. The artifacts inside the house offer a glimpse of life at the Lefferts household in the 1800s and describe what the surrounding neighborhood of Flatbush (and Brooklyn itself) was like in those days. The house is small and a visit should last no more than an hour. Admission is free but donations are welcome.

They offer guided tours of the second floor of the house. Our guide was a disinterested and ill-prepared high school student who mostly read from a piece of paper as he went about his task. They can really do better finding young people with a passion and enthusiasm for history and training them properly to lead these tours.

Neat, off-the-beaten path place to visit. Highly recommend this museum. Features a self-guided tour with a hands-on approach. You can lay on the beds, try on a dress or try carrying buckets up the stairs to get a feel for what life was like for some of the inhabitants back then. Supposedly haunted but didn't experience anything unusual during our visit.
This attraction was included in the NYC pass so I didn't want to miss it.
Small museum but people still can get a bit of the past (mass immigration)
After you can visit the Liverpool ship where a lovely guy was explaining the history of the ship. He was very passionate about it so it was great to listen to him.
The volunteers truly love here what they do.
I went to this on the open house New York weekend. It was an inspirational visit. A guide takes you through the rooms downstairs and gives an overview of Latimer's life. There are great informative posters in the walls to supplement the tour. Though you don't get to go upstairs it is still a wonderful experience. Parking was easy on a Sunday in the street. Definitely worth a visit to learn about an American genius.
If you do not know much about Frederick Douglass then this would be the perfect place to visit. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the history and life of Frederick Douglass. The house was very well preserved and it was a very fascinating tour overall. To be able to witness how life was back then compared to now was really eye-opening and I'd definitely recommend this tour as part of anyone's first time visiting Washington DC.

Best place for recreation. Historical site and wonderful green zone.
