If you really want to appreciate the harbor then grab a boat tour and really appreciate the city while finding out some amazing information about the city and the waterfront and also getting a great view of the statue of Liberty.

It was freezing cold on the ferry but to get a full appreciation of how big Manhattenis you have to see it from the Harbor. Look out for the beautifully restored carousel sitting on the water's edge in a glass case.

You need to take a boat tour to imagine all the millions of people who came to this city and country arriving in this harbour.
As they sailed in there was the Statue of liberty welcoming the masses.
Let your imagination loose.

Whether you simply walk along the river’s edge, charter a sail boat, ride the circle line or the free Staten Island Ferry…get out there and see the harbor. It is generally bustling with all sorts of traffic (big and small, commercial and private) and is an impressive site that all should see. I would also suggest turning your imagination on and time backwards, imagine what it must have been like for those on their way to the new world, crossing the harbor to get to Ellis Island.

Seeing NYC from the harbor gives a nice different view than being in the city, this gives a full perspective how big the city is. Going around Manhattan by boat is highly recommended.
