The Basics

Whether you’re interested in learning about photography or uncovering the role of image-making in the 21st century, the ICP Museum is the place to visit. The museum is located on the Bowery, just blocks from several must-see downtown attractions—so stop by while exploring independently, or after a guided walking tour of Lower Manhattan. Because weekends and evenings tend to be busy, most travelers opt to pay admission online in advance to avoid ticket lines.

To sum it up
Plan out ahead of time so you can enjoy as many attractions as possible. Empire State building was the easiest. Have to Start at M&M. Need to start early if u want to hop on and off cause bus only comes by once per hour. Top view is the best, might need a light jacket. Wonderful experience, very informative and friendly staff.
