We saw the Skyline from Brooklyn at night, the view is amazing. I read there are various points where you can see the Manhattan Skyline, I personally enjoyed this point very much.

It´s simply one of the most if not the most famous skylines in the world so you might just as well get a good look at it. I prefer it during the night when you can see al the lights

The NYC skyline from any angle is very impressive, no matter how you look at it you are unlikely to see such a famous skyline or density anywhere else, very impressive indeed!

Having seen the Skyline from the One World Trade Center and from ground level, knowing it's history this is an experience for life. It makes you want to come back and in the mean time - listen to Frank Sinatra. Great view!

We had the chance this past weekend to spend the weekend in NYC but since we stayed in New Jersey, we took the Lincoln Tunnel across and had the most incredible views of the Manhattan skyline. I'm my opinion, this is the best spot to take pictures from, right on the over pass after exiting the tunnel. A must do... More

There is nothing more perfect then watching the sunrise or sunset as it envelopes NYC in an glow of delight and wonder. There are so many views, from so many perspectives, you cannot get it wrong. Make sure you take your camera!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
