The Metropolitan Museum of Art is not only the largest in New York - it’s one of the biggest in America. Referred to as the “Met” by most, this massive building is over a century old. Architect Richard Morris Hunt collaborated with Calvert Vaux and Jacob Wrey Mould to build the Met in 1874. The building houses more than two million art pieces and features permanent collections from around the world. The Met also has a massive film archive.

This was my first time using this service and it worked seamlessly. I had no problems at all dropping my bag off at NYC Racquet Sports and it was just as easy picking it up. This location is a couple blocks from Penn Station, so it was perfect for exploring Manhattan for several hours before catching the train to Newark Airport for a late night flight. Will definitely use this service on future trips!
Really excellent service, right around the corner from A/C/E trains at Penn Station in New York. Popular and busy restaurant, too — but no one kept me waiting to drop off or pick up a bag.
This place is awesome, it’s near Macy’s and other souvenir shops, nearby food outlets too and near the Penn station in New York. This is the best place to leave your luggage for last minute shopping before you head to the airport via Penn station. Plus the Employees are very courteous and kind
