Do a sunset cruise to take in the beautiful skyline at night. Dinner in Brooklyn then walk back to Manhattan across the Brooklyn Bridge....fantastic!

We just went around staring and some of the buildings are unbelievably beautiful. Sailed out of the Brooklyn cruise terminal on a beautiful fall evening and it was almost a religious experience!!! Dislike - watch the pavement - easy to fall due to inattention and state of repair not exactly how it should be.

My friends and I walked through the High Line Park on the first weekend since the completion of the extension which meant lots of crowds! But that was the only real downside. It's a lovely walk through; we saw some of NYC's historic buildings along the way. We went during the day, it was a hot one at that (who... More

We took a night cruise and the lights were spectacular. Seeing the Statue of Liberty in lights brought tears to my eyes

I absolutely loved the Manhattan Skyline. My daughter and I took a night bus tour that took us to Brooklyn and the view of Manhattan was unbelievable. It was a double decker open bus and we sat up top, it was very cold but worth every shiver. I love New York City and hope to return.
