Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A pretty harbor no matter what angle you view it from. Not sure what the most iconic view is but from the water seems to be the best.

New York Harbour stretches for quite a distance along the Hudson River.
There are berths close to 97th Street and there are further places for boats to moor as you head South.

When I visited there was a large cruise ship moored next to the former aircraft carrier - Intrepid.

There are places for the ferries to moor as they zip across the rivers or around Manhattan.

There are some amazing views of New Jersey, Manhattan and Brooklyn depending on where you are on the island so go ahead and explore.

Our ship docked in Brooklyn right on the harbor, so from our balcony we could admire the Statue of Liberty and the skylines of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Jersey City. Long been an important part of the commerce of the region, also a transport hub. Now holds lots of natural beauty.

As you look at the backdrop it feels familiar because of so many movies that use this spot. Cold and crisp but well worth braving the temperature

The NY Harbour has one of the most fantastic views I have ever seen it is a must see, especially from Battery Park or the top of the WTC.

We took a cruise and had the opportunity to sail down New York Harbor. So many sights. From the Staten Island Ferry Terminal, Statue of Liberty, Verrazano Bridge, etc. Looking at these sights never gets old. I ❤ NY!

I strongly recommend a boat tour of the harbor. It will be a totally different way to see the city and region, to get a sense of the geography. There are also some lovely walks along the harbor, The waterfront has always been an important part of the city.
