Loved the views from the top of the Rockafellar Building and from the Staten Island Ferry. Super fast lift up the tower and cheapest trip in town on the ferry!!

I'm from Chicago, so I didn't think I needed to see the New York skyline. I was wrong. We took an evening tour and viewed the skyline from the Brooklyn side of the river. The buildings and the statute of liberty in the twinkling evening lights was amazing.

There are several ways to see the manhattan skyline,by helicopter by water by coach or from the top of the rock.All give you spectacular views especially at night,we were told by our tour guide that friday night is best as all the offices are being cleaned for the weekend so a lot more buildings are lit up the view from Brooklyn bridge is to die for but in the end its down to you.I hope this review has been helpful to you if so check out my others and have a wonderful trip

I'm not into going up tall buildings so I observed the skyline from various ground/water level vantage points. My favourite by far was from the Circle Line cruise during the day although it was pretty wonderful from the top of a hop on hop off bus as night settled and the lights came on. Definitely a must see as odten as possible at different times of day and night to get the feel of it all.

It was an unusual experience. Quietime in the city and a great use of the disused railway line giving you time and space away from the hectic lifestyle of the city
