A few Tips before you Go:

  • How long it takes? The whole experience takes about 1 hour.
  • There’s a Stroller Valet. You’ll drop your stroller off at the beginning and grab it at the end.
  • Pets are not allowed.
  • Less crowded if you go during the week.
When you check-in…
  • Sign up on the screen at the entrance to get the QR Scan Code that you’ll use in all rooms to take pictures with their cool camera! Look out for the camera at each room (they’re usually at the ceiling!). They’ll send you all the pics afterwards to your email with good lighting & quality. It’s definitely worth it! 😉

Hi there :) I'm Jess and I came to NYC to pursue my dream and I feel I'm living it every day. New York is magical and you have to be open to everything because you never know who is sitting next to you on the subway or behind you in the line of the supermarket. I decided to create this blog about NYC because I realized how many powerful tips would have helped me if I knew them before coming to the city from someone who was living in NY! So I thought that it would be awesome to share with you some tips about New York from a New Yorker. I'm going to keep updating this blog so stay tuned :)
