“To be done on a clear day or at night”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

When I went it was a sunny day giving the skyline a brilliant back drop for picture taking, and the same can be said for the night photos that i got as well.

“What a sight, what a view!!!”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Turly one of the worlds leading skylines when it comes to giving a city the face it deserves. The skyline of New York city is not just the most famous skyline we can think of but also shows beauty in time and age of architecture and design.

Look at the skyline from the Staten Island ferry or walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to see how great it can be. It tops the list of Skylines, closely followed by Shanghai, Hong Kong or Chicago... Jaw dropping gorgeous!!!

“I see it every day from my window”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

This is something you truly never tire of. Even post 9/11 it is spectacular and the new Freedom tower sparkles at night beautifully. go up any tall building to see it and you won't be sorry.

Take the staten island ferry to get a great view of the skyline without spending any money. Also good views from Brooklyn heights on the other side of the bridge.
