Walk the line and then visit the Chelsea market. That would complete the Chelsea experience and fill a great morning/ afternoon

There is nothing like the NYC skyline. If you can go into Queens to look over at it, it is stunning. Do not miss it if you are visiting.

We took one of those buggy rides. A little pricey, but nice. It gives you an idea of spots to spend more time. Get one of those maps!

The skyline we remember from so many movies. We saw it from different sides, like from the One World Observatory, from Manhattan bridge and from Brooklyn.

Its always nice to look at the NYC skyline. It looks so serene from afar...... We've recently been taking the time as New Yorkers to visit all of the landmarks we've neglected and taken for granted.

No matter where you view this, the skyline is magnificent, especially at night just as the sun sets and all the buildings come alive as they start to light up, beautiful.

To be honest I saw better views but the New York Manhattan Skyline is world renown and thus a must see. There are various sites from which you can see it and all will look different.

We went in April. It was cold but lovely and sunny. I can imagine any part would be good in early October. We hired bikes and explored all over. Wish we were going again.
