Awesome Experience

We had the exciting experience of seeing the New York skyline from the 34th floor of the Mandarin Hotel. It was awesome.

Iconic NYC with the Empire State Building. the beautiful Chrysler Building, and now the stunning World Trade Tower. I get so excited when I fly into NYC and catch my first glimpse of the city. There is only one New Your City.

Having lived in NYC for half of my life, I never tire of admiring the New York Skyline. It is beautiful from down below as well as high up. I work on the 40th Floor of a building near Central Park and have a hard time keeping my eyes away from the window.

Unique, powerful, inspiring, dramatic- find the right vantage point: in the air, on the water, above the town, across a river and you can enjoy the most visible and perhaps one of the less seen feature of Manhattan

This is one of those things that you need to see in your lifetime - yeah it is just a bunch of tall building but the sight of them all together really inspires awe and wonder. If you can take a quality photo, you will have a keepsake or a least a quality wallpaper. If you are coming from NJ,... More

From a ferry across the bay of the Hudson River and the East River, you can get a beautiful view of the skyline of New York. Day and evening, the view is just great. The city has a charm that makes it impossible not to return.

So many shapes, sizes, and textures. So many stories and so many storeys:) The very best way to appreciate it is from a boat. Circle Line, Staten Island Ferry, and others afford great views.

Make certain to look at the magnificent Manhattan Skyline as you travel towards the island over many of the NYC bridges.

I was born and raised in NYC. There's not another city in the US that comes close what NYC offers. The city is alive 24 hours a day. If NYC doesn't have it, you don't need it.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
