I was recently asked to name the most memorable or awe inspiring sight that captivated me in the last year and I immediately thought of traveling across the Queensboro Bridge and taking in the NYC skyline. My goodness what a sight! Forget the last year, this is one of the most amazing feelings that I have had in my entire... More

It is not so often when you can just walk about in NYC withought having to worry about getting hit by a car or a taxi. In Skyline you can just walk and relax while viewing the amazing city of New York.

get your camera ready and get ready to be intimidated and in awe at the same time. The skyline is one of those things that photos and movies simply can do justice. You have to see it for yourself with you own eyes and just be taken back by its beauty and massiveness. A must do!

One of the best skyline view in the world. Can't get bored by this habour view. The Manhattan skyline should be the logo/ landmark of Manhattan. It looks even better at night. I miss this city so much.

What a great time we had! It was breezy and cold even though it was 80 during the day. They handed out red hooded floor length robes for everyone on the rooftop to wear. Plenty of seats unlike some rooftop bars. Drinks reasonbly priced. No cover charge to go up. Saw World Trade bdlg. and Empire State all lit up.... More

the cruise vessel and guide are nothing very fancy but the scenery is totally worth seeing! You can also see Liberty Statue very close so there's no need necessary to visit it separately (unless you want to go up to the crown).

The flowers were wonderful, but the architecture challenging and for the future. It was all wonderful. Bring lunch and sit on the various spaces available.
