No matter the time of the year - the skyline always takes my breath away. We were able to enjoy it from the rooftop bar at the Empire and on a harbor dinner cruise. March is still cold - dress warm!

Best viewed in my opinion from the River Cafe and at night. Magical. You really realise actually how many buildings there are!

The Manhattan Skyline is wonderful to see especially from the river. We went during the day time and also we went at the evening to see the buildings all lit up.

Wonderful to view from "Top of the Rock" Rockefeller Centre building. Takes a while to get to the top but absolutely worth the effort.

Beautiful. Make plans for a ferry ride at dusk to truly see the city at its magical most. This city never sleeps and it is reflective in the most majestic skyline.

Whether you choose to commit the view to memory, or to take lots of photos, the view of Manhattan skyline isn't one you'll ever forget. You'll also find lots of places from which you can take in the view during the day and at night. I particularly like the views from Brooklyn Bridge and from just outside the River Cafe... More

I've been to New York several times now and I always get excited when I see that incredible skyline. When you first see it, it's so amazing and then it has a feel of not being real, an illusion. You can't believe you are actually going to this place. An emotional time for me was our first visit after 9/11.... More

Coming from the UK the Manhattan Skyline is beautiful. We particularly thought it was breath taking from our top floor hotel balcony and from inside Central Park. We also viewed it during the day and at night from Top of the rock and Empire State building which was also beautiful.
