5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

You've seen it in films and on the TV but it still takes your breath away when you see it in person.

“One of the best amazing skylines in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

One of my friends said from the rockies - it's like the mountains but man made! Even when you leave manhattan you already notice the difference in construction. Other places have a downtown with sky scrapers but manhattan tops it on both the horizontal and vertical!!!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Iconic view that was gorgeous. Waited a long time to visit New York and the wait was worth it. I enjoyed the feel of the city, the people, the vibe. Driving in yellow cabs and sweltering in the underground.
Best way to see it is from Brooklyn.
