Spent the day in Brooklyn with my nephew, he ended our full day at the bar at the top of the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn! Wow, what a view!

If you want to catch a perfect view of the Manhattan skyline, take the 7 train, get off Vernon/ Jackson stop (first after Grand Central), and walk to the river. You will be stunned by the skyline views! You may want to come here twice -- at day and at night. It is quite different.

Just cross the Brooklyn bridge around sunset and enjoy the view. It's beautiful. There are a few places where you can see it. On the north side of the Brooklyn bridge to see the bridge as well or just in front of the skyline, on the south part. And don't forget to take the train back over the Manhattan bridge.

The trip encircling Manhattan with a tour guide gave a very interesting perspective on the area. It was a bit cold and windy so I'd do it a bit earlier in the year but well worth it!

This is one of the most spectacular Skylines in the world and you have to see it from one of the many sea going vessels on offer all over the coast line

Just like in the movies. Stunning on a sunny day and at night. Really enjoyed the view. Our bedroom offered us a great view.

Leaving New York on the Queen Mary 2 at the beginning of October, we were late departing and had the bonus luck of seeing Manhattan lit up against a clear black sky - pure magic. Photographs didn't come out but what did it matter as the memory will stay with me forever. It was amazing.
