“Nothing like it in the world. Period.”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

I never get tired of the airplane approach to La Guardia......the New York skyline---breathtaking! I do wish some of the mega-builders would lay off the city, though. Don't need a Frank Gehry vanity piece, thank you very much!

“Ride the Staten Island Ferry for free”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

It was a fun ride and we saw the skyline, the Statue of Liberty, and did it all in just over an hour, AND it was FREE.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Always amazing especially as the sun goes down at night! View from the Top of the Rock is my favorite but really any view of the skyline is usually impressive!

“NY view but NJ perspective”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

I grew up seeing the skyline from the NJ side and it's still amazing. At night on the ferry, the lights are magical. Dinner and touring cruises are a great way to get acquainted and see some sites like the Statue of Liberty. For an out of the the way secret view, go to Blvd East in Weehawken. The park is a great stroll and the views are fabulous. Wall south past the park and see the site of the Burr-Hamilton duel.
