saves you a lot of money. some tickets n the book they did not tear out so maybe you could try using them again.
Guggenheim the staircase is closed so no photo opportunities. this was the largest queue and it did not have many exhibits. very pretensious and boring.
Great value, picked up my pass at 7:30am and hit the ground running. Saw the Statue of Liberty, Museum of Sex and Empire State Building all before lunch. After lunch i saw the MoMA, Guggenheim and Metropolitan. Took a nap, went to dinner and ended my night with a beautiful night time view of the city from Top of the Rock. If you can't move at a fast pace or if you're unfamiliar with NYC i would recommend getting a two or three day pass.
We saved so much money by using the New York pass. We bought the 1 day pass as we only stayed the weekend but we managed to see so much. (Statue of liberty, Empire State building, Madame Tussaud, Top of the Rock and the Guggheneim museum). I highly recommend the New York pass for those who intend to visit the City.
Fantastic trip, with surprising extras. We hand't planned to get mixed up with the Wall Street occupiers but it was the only way through to the theatre. Neither had we planned to join the breast cancer awareness walk but we did. The highlight for my wife was the (free) look around the Chrysler Building foyer. The City Pass worked a treat and we would recommend anyone to use it. The only disappointment was that the Guggenheim was offering such a limited view without notice becuase of refurbishment.
We used the pass to go up the Empire State Building and then upgraded for the Skyride. Both were well worth it however I found the skyride image a bit underlit. Maybe a new projector light bulb is in order. Also toured the Guggenheim fulfilling a long time dream. We did not have time for anything else this time around. I would prefer if one did not have to make a choice between certain sites/actiivites but instead have access to all. Would recommend the CityPass to anyone who has at least 2 days to tour.
We arrived at the Guggenheim and it was pouring rain. The line for tickets extended out the door and half a block down the street. We walked in the main enterance showed our tickets, picked up our free audio tour and glanced back at the poor souls getting drenched. No waiting, no standing in line. That single ticket was worth the price of the whole book. Highly recommended.
We spent 6 days in New York. CityPass was great, allowing us to skip most lines not the security lines.That itself made it worthwhile, even it wasn't cheaper than the individual activities. Took 4 days to get through as we did ESB and Liberty Ellis tour on the one day. Guggenheim only took half day bit of a let-down and only had a half day for MOMA but could have spent longer. Natural History Museum & The Met easily take full days. Had a great time in NYC. Don't forget to buy a 7 day subway ticket - best value to get to everything efficiently, including the odd musical we went to two.
We enjoyed fast entrance, good service and all that for a nice price. Defenitely worth it! Information was accurate, though Guggenheim was still quite busy on Wednesday.

Doing what: The New York Pass
Went in September. Used it for the Empire State Building, Top of the Rock, Guggenheim Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. The guide book was very helpful. Didn't need to jump queues as we were out of the busy season. Would definately buy it again and would recommend it to friends visiting New York.
The New York City Pass is really a good buy. You get to see so many attractions at a very discounted price. The only comment I have are the options where I have to choose only between Guggenheim AND Top of the Rock and only between Statue of the Liberty/Ellis Island and the Cruise. I wanted all four of them and lesser on the other museums.
Good value, would be better with a few more options. Maybe use 6 of 8 regardless of sites. We wanted Guggenheim and Top of the rock, so was a little frustrating.
Excellent value for money although the Guggenheim was a huge disappointment..
We enjoyed of Our new york city trip! We only did not visit THE history museum. We have choken for THE Guggenheim museum.
Good options and good value for money. On a personal note, I think it would have been fairer for the and/or optional ticket choice to be between the Guggenheim and MOMA rather than between the Top of the Rock and Guggenheim and the fact that you couldn't get the money off the bus tour until you picked up the booklet from one of the places was a pain, as all the bus tours stop at all these places. So we ended up missing out on this and purchasing tickets anyway in order to get to our first destination.
New York CityPass was fantastic, you get to see some of the great sites of New York. I was disappointed that I had to choose between the Guggenheim and the Top of the Rock, they are very different places and I would have liked to have seen both.
