Go on smartdestinations.com for an Explorer Pass as this attractions is included. Amazing sights of the whole of Manhatten and Staten Island at night. Bring decent camera/phone-my iphone worked better than my camera in the dark. This was March-so wrap up warm, as it's a cold 2 hours!

We do this without plan as we're suppose to do something else but late for it so we chose this instead as it's free because we bought the New York Pass... It was worth it as we manage to see Manhattan from before the sunset until the lights were up on the buildings.. It will pass Liberty as well so... More

Purchased tickets at 10am for the river cruise at the evening. Got told to be there for 6:15 to have enough time to board for the 7pm departure, arrived at 6:05 and even though we had our vouchers ready we was told to wait in line to exchange them for boarding passes. We waited in line for 1hr to be... More

The view here is excellent, but I was surprised to find the food good, the service attentive and the prices comparatively reasonable. I had a special of the day: crab cake sandwich. It was more than I expected and delicious. Each person in our group was ha pay with the choices, even the kids liked the food. I was impressed.

We had eaten here on our previous 2 visits to NYC & previously had enjoyed the food & the view. This time only the view lived up to expectations. It was after 6pm, the restaurant was practically empty but the service was poor - either no attention or asking us if everything was ok every 2 seconds ( I exagerate)... More

The waitesr have difficulty with english and know nothing about service. There were four of us for dinner, we all had different main courses and everyone agreed their meals were one of the worst they had had... More

We sat down, the glasses were filthy. The drop leaf part of the table (that converts square into round) kept dropping into my lap. The butter was rancid and I was told it was all they had. The apple salad was decent. They don't care, they don't have to. Go, if you must, for the view. Don't go for the... More

This restaurant is beautifully located on the East River and it has the most beautiful night view of the bridges... it certainly is worth its price. The menu is a bit limited but the service was delightful. The waiters are so nice!!

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
