“Nothing Close Like it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2014 NEW

I Consider my Self "Well Traveled" have Been To Every State including Alaska ( on a Cruise) and Hawaii, ( Maui On Our 30th Anniversary) And I Must Say The NYC skyline is the most impressive that I have ever Seen, Always "breath taking". Been To NYC Hundreds of Times and We Are always In "Awe", if it's Summer or Winter the Landscape Is Always Special! The Empire State Building is my Favorite, Can't Get Enough of It, but The Chrysler Building always has Been Very Special Also, No Matter where u Are in Manhattan u will Be Amazed, I know, I've Lived here in The Area my Whole Life, the Skyline is like Nothing you ever Seen In This Country. Take Lots Of Pictures. It truly is Beautiful.

Definitely go on a boat tour of the harbour to get a feel of the size of the city. Well worth the kodak moments. The city lights up at night and a treat to sail under all the famous bridges.

“Nothing Else Like It”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2014 NEW

The Manhattan Skyline can be viewed from several places in the vicinity of NYC and New Jersey, and no matter where you stop for a few minutes, the view is incredible, especially at night.

You can of course gain a great view from the Statue of Liberty, but there are lookout points along the waterways in NY and NJ. Of course, a river cruise or chopper ride, as mentioned here in other reviews, will give you first-hand viewing, but just driving down the Palisades Interstate from the north offers a great view just before crossing the bridge into the city.

No matter where you are in the vicinity of NYC, plan to stop a few minutes and appreciate the view of the Manhattan Skyline, particularly at night. You won't regret it.
