What can you say, it's one of the main reasons why you want to see New York. We saw it flying in, later on the Night Tour by bus, 'we got the money shot', I think from Brooklyn; later we got the views from One World and then from the boat trip. All Great views of an Iconic skyline.

Always a beauty is all I can say about Manhattan skyline - the most recognizable in the world. From every angle - New Jersey, Queens or Brooklyn, although my favorite is by the Brooklyn Bridge park where you get the best view of downtown, Statue of Liberty, Governor's Island and, of course. the bridge itself. The Promenade on top and... More

No matter how many times you see the New York skyline, it is always unique. Whether it is the way they light the Empire State Building at night, or the way the sun light is diffused ion winter days, or slate gray skyscrapers against steel gray clouds, the skyline is an ever changing gem of a view. Whether you approach... More

Best skyline on the East coast. Taking a cruise from Chelsea pier is the best view. Also try the view from Brioklyn pier, Queensborough bridge, and South Street Seaport. I never get tired of seeing it.

What a great city for skyscrapers! Missing the twin towers after 9-11, but a lot of other wonderful towers. Take in the view from the Empire State Building or from across the river in Brooklyn or Jersey City

One of the most spectacular man made sights in existence. I can't believe Trip Advisor even has this as a possible review.

The Manhattan skyline is so impressive that you must see it from every angle, every possible perspective, from tall buildings, from buses, from other sides such as from the Brooklyn Promenade or the New Jersey side near Weehawken. See it all from every perspective.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
