At the end of a long day, we used a walk on the Brooklyn Bridge as an opportunity to check two items off of our New York "to do list".
NYC skyline at night is outstanding.
You have seen innumerable pictures in magazines and movies,...More
There's nothing that quite compares to the New York skyline. You'll find some of the oldest and most iconic buildings in the world. The Empire State Building is a beacon in blue. The Chrysler Building shimmers in the winter sunshine. It'll not disappoint you whether...More
Easy to reach and yet gives another feeling when you watch the skyline from beyond the river. I would recommend because you can see from the other side where you've been walking all around. The towers seem so small from this distance.
This view is great in any season.The time of day can give you different lighting.Sunsets are great! The water taxi is a great way to see it, the circle line or the good old staten island ferry will all get you great views.
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 a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the
affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.

Growing up in NYC as we both did we have always taken pubic transit( subway/bus) or walked .Your best bet is to do as the"natives" do: walk or use public transportation. I've never taken a tour bus anyplace I've been to , always go "native" & take public transport or walk. ..I/we park in a parking lot& get directions from the attendant.We walk or take public transit & stopin to paces as we choose to. ...Afterr doing all we wantedwe return to the parking lot & drive off to our hotel or planned sleeping location . Other methods are too
restrictive .We prefer going into shops & restaurants to make our visit to every city more"GENUINE" & complete. If you are on a tour bus you cannot buy a hot dog; soft pretzel, roasted chestnuts or a taco from a street vendor &miss out on the real city experience[ wherever you are]. You might try one bus tour &if time allows, do a public transit/walk tour on another day ( "best of everything")

Top of the rocks gives best view however we have visited in May and a skyscraper under construction close to top of the rocks limited the view. Two years ago we have been at Empire State Building and liked it a lot. Also from the inside. On the terrace you have a spectacular view 360 degrees
Empire state building is tradition, romance, ...
Top of the rocks is modern also spectacular if the biuilding under construction would not have limited our view
