“No Better Skyline in the United States”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

To really enjoy the skyline you need to see it from across the river, preferably at night. Though the best view ever is if you are lucky enough to sit in seat F (right side window) of a plane landing at La Guardia when they have the approach up the Hudson. It's simply stunning!

“Good pancakes, bad omelett”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Just no salt in the veggie omelett so it tasted nothing, pancakes good. Typical Amercan diner in a 70s interior style, staff friendly.

“unique and awesome”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Every time i see it I like it. Its wonderful and unique. It kind of defines New York for me. Even with such tall buildings, the street seems well lit, i guess due to light reflection from the glass builsings

“Cool to see, best at a distance”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Definitely worth seeing, especially at sunrise/sunset. Best seen from Brooklyn Bridge Park, but best view is from a distance (i.e. from a plane landing at laguardia)
