Cannot be described, you have to see it for yourself. Best view from water taxi at round about sunset.

You've seen it in the movies but to see it from every possible angle is even more stunning. Never gets boring, day or night

The Manhattan Skyline is a really good site for you to see when you go to Manhattan. Manhattan is the first place that you plan to go when you go to New York (Not Brooklyn, Queens, or Flushing) Manhattan has one of the most beautiful skylines in the world. Bring a camera to take picture (but not at night because you can't see the skyline). The best places to see the Manhattan is Top of the Rock or one top of the Empire State Building.

The view from a distance of the NYC skyline is like no other-the lights twinkle in the darkness while the full moon stood between the city and the sky. It is romantic and sensual; the sight illuminates all the senses; the night was warm and made walking a pleasure to take in the scenery of this beautiful, vibrant city.

Do bring a camera. Nighttime is my favorite because there are so many colorful signs, lights on the fountains and statuary and buildings. A tripod would help, too. I love watching people from out-of-town - some who have never seen such tall buildings. I'm always amazed myself! The thing I dislike about wandering in NYC is seeing garbage strewn here and there along the sidewalks and gutters, and the people who would rather bump into you than walk an inch out of the way. But all in all, NYC is an experience because the skyline is like no other.
