Just like on the TV! Brilliant, its a strange feeling, it takes a while to realise you're there! The buildings are fab.

The Manhattan skyline is always a wonderful sight to see. I have seen it from the water, The Empire State Building, and Rockefeller Center. It is always an amazing experience and wonderful sight to see.

It is worth the rather long wait to see this. I enjoyed the Art-Deco on the way up, but not the long winding queues, just when you felt you were there another one opened up.

We walked across the Brooklyn bridge at night and the views were wonderful, as were the views from Ellis Island during the day.

We loved the ride to the top of the Rockefeller Centre and the attraction is very well executed. There's also plenty to see and do at ground level if any friends/family don't like heights!
