This pass was a life saver on our trip. If you are on the fence, just do it. We were able to save so much time by skipping the line at Top of the Rock and MOMA. Plus the guide was instrumental in planning our days! Do try to pick up the pass when you get in or during an evening as you maximize your time to use the pass it starts the day you use it, so start with the next morning. Pickup at the Planet Hollywood was convenient and very easy. I was worried how that would work, but it was a seamless operation.
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.

Doing what: New York City Explorer Pass
When we decided to take our first of 5 venues, we picked the city tour. The tour was great - very informative and fun. We used the pass for Rockefeller Centre and then ventured to the Guggenheim and MoMA. At the Museum of Natural History, we learned we were to have redeemed our pass at Ripley's. I went through all of my email correspondence and did not find any information about that. I did find the information in the booklet. When we visited, we were advised of many exhibit closures. When we expressed our displeasure at paying full price for admission with so many closures, they replied that admission was by donation and they would accept half price. We concluded that the price of the pass was the same as if you were paying regular price - and you had to pass through a special ticket counter for each venue, which had less staff and sometimes more customers than the regular lines.
Even though we did not use the MOMA or Circle Line tour vouchers--not enough time--the CityPass was worth it. We did not use it for the Statue of Liberty because we wanted to go onto the statue and a Monument Pass is required. We thus bought the ferry tickets directly from the ferry company that works with the Park Service and got the free Monument Passes from them.
Ive just got back from a short trip to New York with my boyfriend. We had a fabulous trip. We decided to buy New York City Pass to save time queuing and it was worth it. Tip: At the MOMA you have to get an extra ticket for special exhibitions such as the Van Gogh one that we saw, they say these are in short supply. We played dumb and they just handed to VIP ones over. It pays to be blonde!

Doing what: New York CityPass
MoMa was excellent, but we didn't enjoy the harbor cruise and we couldn't be bothered with the other 2 museums. Empire State was great.
