Reviewed By worldtravelier - New Jersey

Built in 1925 this theater has been restored. Fantastic! Large open space. Terrific ambience. As you walk in the main entrance take your time and look around. Take in your surroundings and imagine yourself back in time. How it must have been an excitement to be entertained in such luxury.

This place was huge! We spent 6 hours shopping and probably saw a quarter of what was in the center. There's some brilliant outlets offering great deals that makes it well worth a trip. Many people (us included) brought a suitcase and started filling it to save us carting our many many shopping bags around. The centre is spacious with a large food court and lots of variety.

Heliflights Helicopter Tour around New York City.

Reviewed By Rdolci - Lausanne, Switzerland

We took the night tour. Because the helicopter is doing a circle from Linden towards Liberty Statue, Hudson river, Central Park, East river and back, the people (me) seating on the rear left (behind the pilot) do not see anything of Manhattan, while the others on right side and front seem to enjoy sone view.

Liberty Hall Museum

Welcome to Liberty Hall Museum at Kean University, home of New Jersey's first elected governor and signer of the Constitution, William Livingston. Built in 1772, on the eve of the American Revolution, Liberty Hall has been a silent witness to more than 200 years of American history. Over the last two centuries, the originally designed 14-room Georgian Style home has grown into a 50-room Victorian-style mansion. The site houses extensive collections of antique furniture, ceramics, textiles, toys and tools owned by seven generations of the Livingston and Kean families. Ancestors of the Livingston/Kean families have included Governors, U.S. Congressmen and Senators, entrepreneurs, and pioneering women with vision and strength. The stories of their lives, passed down from generation to generation, tell how this family met the challenges of a changing nation. Visit Liberty Hall Museum and discover the living past. Liberty Hall Museum has it's own parking lot and it's free.

Reviewed By Carole S - Westfield, New Jersey, United States

This museum/house contains the belongings of the Livingston/Kean family going back to Revolutionary times. Exhibitions on special themes are rotated periodically. High tea is available on certain afternoons. The house has a large farm whose products are used in the nearby Ursino's restaurant. Both are on the Kean University campus across the street from the main area.

We reserved the main diningroom for my husband's 65th birthday and retirement. Great food and music as well as a gracious host and servers. They helped with balloons as well as drinks and food and served the birthday cake. They also provided gluten free dishes for some of our guests who needed that

Casts and production values are topnotch. I've seen The Bodyguard, The Producers, and Mary Poppins here and I was floored by how good the shows were. Hit shows get good crowds so book early. Parking is easy, and the theater is close to the train station.

To the Struggle Against World Terrorism

Reviewed By Footsloggers - Ottawa, Canada

This is a very beautiful Memorial to commemorate the 9/11 tragedy. It was presented to the people of America from the people of Russia. I had previously seen very little about the sculpture other than a few photographs, nothing in the media or glossy brochures.

As a sculpture it is easy to make an interpretation, it is a single enormous, poignant teardrop hanging between two very tall pillars. Its simplicity is its beauty. Paving stones throughout the extremely small park are engraved with messages, family names, memorials and names, this is a beautiful place.

Sadly this Memorial has been sited in the back of beyond. It has been plonked right next to the cruise ship terminal, overshadowed by warehouses and on a bleak promontory jutting into the Hudson River. It's not an easy place to get to without a car, GPS doesn't recognise the address and only those determined to find it actually get to see it.

But if you do make the effort you'll see the reward for yourselves. Please go and see it.
