I loved seeing the lights of the city at night. Also loved seeing the city from the Statue of Liberty.

We strolled the Skyline on a Sunday, although there's a lot of people it's not over crowded where you are jam packed. You can walk as long or short as you wish.

Took the Staten Island Ferry during the day and got the full Manhattan Skyline view from the Ferry. Tried to do the evening ride before we left, but ran out of time. I would definitely recommend both a day and night view from the ferry, and it costs nothing.

I like the skyline. It's like 5,000 buildings going up in the sky. It will be too polluted and crowded soon. But it's 5-Starrs

Went to the top of Rockefeller Center. The journey was poorly managed, overpriced, and endlessly uncomfortable. We won't be back.

Stunning views of a lovely city. Brooklyn bridge and Central Park a must too - only did these kind of 'attractions' my third time in NYC as all the other times was too busy with Times Square et al!
