We went to Liberty Park to get a good view of Manhattan from New Jersey. First, we went in the beginning of December and the wind chill was crazy cold. However, the view was to die for. Although it was an overcast day when we went, you could see from the Empire State Building all the way to Lady Liberty.... More

Best views of downtown New York and the Statute of Liberty. The walkway from the old train/ferry station towards the Statue of Liberty is one of the world's most beautiful walks/runs.

Makes more sense after visiting Ellis & Liberty islands, but is not being exploited as its recovered after hurricane Sandy.

I like this place because has a spectacular view of NYC also if you are planning to go to the statue of liberty this is the fastest way to go because lines are shorter than the other choices,you can go there easily from any place in new jersey using the light rail but you have to walk about 1 mile...

If you like the vistas of the NYC skyline, this is the place for you. It is great for walking and for those with a historical bent, visit the renovated train station.

My wife and I got into New York on a drive and went to the park for sunrise. Watching the sunrise over the Statue of Liberty and the city on your first day there is quite a start to a trip. Try it out!!
