“There's no view like it!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

I took one of the Happy Hour river cruises to see both the NY and NJ skyline at night. It also provided a beautiful view of the Statue of Liberty in all of her glory. It was great to see the city from a different vantage point. I’ve seen it from the top of the Empire State Building, but seeing it from the river, was magnificent. In addition to seeing the shorelines, the cruise had food and drinks for purchase and there was music to dance the night away! It was a fun experience.

“Beautiful at night”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We took a 4th of July Cruise from the East River to the Hudson. The skyline was great during the day, but so pretty at night. The new Freedom Tower isn't finished yet, but is already very eye catching.

“The best view of Manhattan and only five stories up”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

On the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Five floor up...just above the tree tops of Central Park with nothing between you and a 360 degree view of the skyline of Manhattan. The museum was packed but the Roof Garden was almost emty. Maybe most people don't know about it or don't take the time but it worht half an hour on top of the Met to enjoy the skyline of Manhattan..

“I can view it over & over again!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

And I do. Living in one of the boroughs, I have to often take the ferry across to Manhattan, this Sunday was a beautiful sun filled day,we took the ferry where outside seating gives you an amazing view, the Harbor to me is always breathtaking, the building that replaces the towers completes the setting, making it a view that brings tears to your eyes. The ferry ride from Staten Island to Manhattan is the best view you'll get... that day many many tourists were on the ferry, snapping pics..and as inspired as I was, to see the NY skyline bounce back from that terrible day...
