If you cross into Brooklyn or go to Jersey city across the hudson river the spectacular sky line is a must to see, by day one vista by night twinkling lights. If you decide boat trip on river you can also see the panoramic view....More

See it by tour bus if you can! At least once! Each time it says something different to your senses...cloudy, rainy, clear and sunny, one view is worth a thousand words!

We saw the Manhattan skyline while we were in Dumbo, Brooklyn. It really has the best view of the skyline. Looking at all of the buildings from the outside rather than walking amongst them gives you a whole new take on the city. Sit on...More

The view of this city is always moving an magical. In every season, it never fails to impress. If one is lucky, one can see the view from several places.

Many New Yorkers, I included, feel that the over-sized new buildings on 57th Street (so called Billionaire's Row) have destroyed the skyline. It's true that they are crassly showy, but they can't hide the elegance of the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building and the...More

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors
imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like
the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop
hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is
