Always fun to get swept along in the sidewalk surge and see the sights. We did some ancestry research at the main library which is beautiful. They offer a genealogy section that is helpful. The rest of the time was for "out of towner" gawking, noshing and catching a broadway show.

As a visitor from a country that has very little high rise buildings, the Manhattan skyline is amazing, one has to see it to get the real feeling of it. Good for photos. It was a nice experience. Enjoyed myself very much.

Always nice to have a place to walk and to enjoy the scenery. There were a lot of people, but that is par for the course.

When you are in NY, don't miss a chance to see Manhattan Skyline, especially at night time when all the lights on. Thousands of pictures you see before would not describe the real feeling when you were there in person. It is a must

It's just another must see in manhattan, whether you choose to capture it from the Brooklyn bridge park or from the Statue of Liberty, the ESB/Rockfeller top of the rock, a sightseeing cruise going around the Hudson and easy rivers, you can't miss it. Great pictures to be taken

We viewed the Manhattan skyline from the top of the rock observation deck. You get a good view of Central Park and a wonderful view of everything else. It's great to see something you only saw in the movies now in person.

Take the night hop-on-hop-off bus and see the view from Manhattan Bridge. The photos cannot do it justice. You have to see the Manhattan Skyline for yourself!

From the Staten Island Ferry (free Public transportation) which leaves Manhattan at the Southern tip, right next to Battery Park, you'll have a real Close-up of the skyline. Its from this angle you realise Manhatten is an island, With Hudson to the left (west) and East River on the other side. You miss some of the height of some of... More

I rate the skyline 5 stars, but whatever you do, you can’t really miss it. In my opinion, one of the best ways to see the city is by going to the Brooklyn Heights Promenade (it’s free). You can also go to the Top of the Rock Observation Deck.
