Very nice experience ... The only thing is that I think tourists should be more respectful of the activity, it is not a show, it is not to take videos and photos all the time, we are in a spiritual activity of a religion that is not so yours deserves that rest too, it was really the only thing that bothered me a bit, even though the people who led the Mass were very cordial with the subject.

Disgusting impressions of visitingThe New York Nightlife, 324 West 47t

The New York Nightlife, 324 West 47th Street (between 8-9 Avenue). Waiting for the manager for half an hour !!! She gathered a huge line. Then said that we did not have time on the tour. I wanted to catch a taxi on my own for my payment. Asked for an address and called the guide. Complete incompetence, carelessness and indifference of the manager! Stressed nelanie! We went by taxi and received a lot of impressions from visiting the church!
