“Just Huge!”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

Fantasic skyline. Midtown I think is the best. Going up the Rock (Rockafeller Center) or Empire State Building is one of the best ways to see the skyline. I think the Rock is about $30 to get to the top.

Boat ride to statue of liberty and boat ride to staten island are other options.

“You really know you're in New York - breath taking!”
Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

Visited New York for 10 days after saving for 2 and a half years! This view, be it from a boat or Brooklyn truly takes your breath away. You know you've finally made it, it's there in front of you and you are here in the Big Apple! Emotional, well yes after all those movies/TV shows you've seen, it's great to be living the dream at least for a little bit!

“Free!”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

Do this from the free Staten Island ferry after dark if you can. You get to see the Statue of Liberty (from a bit of a distance) too.

“Like nowhere else in the world”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Manhattan's skyline is like nothing you've seen before or will ever forget. You'll probably have a favorite building (mine is the Chrysler Building) that you'll need to spot on subsequent visits to remind you you're truly in New York City. Impressive from the air, land, sea, and observation decks!
