Appeal Excellent Facilities Excellent Service Good - The MET is so big that you could spend a day here and not see all the exhibits. My recommendation is to pick two areas to check out or put a max of about 3 hours for your visit. Anything more and your head will spin. I love this museum. It reminds me of the book From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. After you're done with the museum. Relax on the steps. It's very Gossip Girl and Hitch.

Quality Excellent - Consider yourself lucky if you fly out of Terminal 5 at JFK. This is the nicest and newest terminal, home to Jet Blue and Aer Lingus. The terminal even has free wifi and concerts. The food selections are top notch with restaurants, cafeteria style options, and Jamba Juice. JFK Airport is big so if you know your terminal it is helpful. I once flew Delta and Delta was split between the old and new wing so I was riding shuttle busses all over and was a little late to the gate. Otherwise, you'd be fine and it is so easy to connect to the subway from the air train.

Quality Good - LGA is a decent sized airport which is the nearest to Manhattan. It's easy to get to/from by bus or taxi. LGA is not my first choice but if the company is paying, then I'm all there. Lucky me too, to be home in 10 minutes. I have always had a good experience at LGA. The flights are on time and the grounds are clean. It's a small airport so it's not luxurious like JFK. If you're hungry you will have slim pickings.

Quality Poor to fair - Newark Airport, or EWR, used to be my go to airport when I lived in Jersey. There were lots of international flights and the airport was smaller to manage. That was before I wised up. The flights are always late leaving EWR! Even if JFK is farther out, it is more worth it to fly in/out of. It's also cheaper to get to via public transportation. It seems like EWR is always under construction so if someone is picking you up, have your cell phone in hand because they will be circling around forever when really you are standing right there.

Appeal Good Facilities Excellent Service Good - When you visit the Frick mansion, you get to see how the real rich people lived. Mr. Frick turned his private home (a mansion which takes up a whole block!) into a museum filled with art. These artworks are worth millions and some have been around for a hundred years! The Frick also has it's own theater. You will be in awe as you walk through the grounds. It's stunning and jaw dropping that this was all owned by one man. What a contribution to the arts!

Appeal Excellent Facilities Good Service Good - Visiting the Statue of Liberty at least once is a must! Bring all your tourist friends and family here because it is New York. I have been a few times in my life and have never went up to the crown. They are letting people go up there again but you have to reserve months in advance. I also just finally went to Ellis Island for the first time. Usually I bypass it to save time. Well worth a visit. Tickets for the ferry is a short line but waiting to get on the boat could take hours. Dress warm because it is cold. Go as early as possible.

- Battery Park has great views of the water. It's the meeting place to catch the ferry for Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. There are a few play areas for children, some volley ball courts, and lots of walking paths. Unless you want to go to the Statue or live in the area I wouldn't exactly call this a destination.

Appeal Excellent Facilities Excellent Service Excellent - Absolutely stunning and famous Catholic Church in Manhattan. This is a great place to check out and attend mass. There is also a daily mass around 5:30 that I used to attend after work. If you ever have the chance to witness a wedding getting out of St. Patrick's Cathedral, stop and take in the moment. It's breathtaking and a very pure stop in your tracks New York moment.

Quality Excellent - One of the most beautiful bridges ever built. There is something about it that is so New York and so Brooklyn. Hundreds of tourists walk it daily along with commuters on foot and on bikes. You can tell the tourists vs. the locals. I love the old school feel to it. Take a picture. It never gets old.

- Monterey Bay Aquarium has so much to offer. If you are every in the Bay Area, make the drive and check it out. The town is relaxing and slow paced. It will be a nice break from the city. Be warned, the crowds come out in droves. Tons of children so have patience if you want to see the fish. If you don't want to pay for parking, park a few blocks away in the residential area.
