“Seen from both sides”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Because we stayed at the excellent La Quinta Inn & Suites Secaucus, in Secaucus, New Jersey, we saw the skyline from the Jersey side across the Hudson River on our bus ride into the City. We also walked across the Brooklyn Bridge beginning on the Brooklyn side so we saw Manhattan from the East River Side. There is such a variety of building sizes and styles that it is a treat for the eyes. The views from the bus were short in duration, but my pictures let me revisit the skyline whenever I wish. Views from the Brooklyn Bridge were somewhat interrupted by the bridge support structures, but they were still impressive. Well worth the walk.

“It is amazing!”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Find a roof top or get a hotel room with a view. Nothing beats watching a NYC sunset and the magic of all the twinkling lights as they appear on the skyline when darkness falls.

I did this at sunset while walking across the Brooklyn Bridge. Very beautiful. I would try a sunrise view next time.
