When visiting NYC, you should really try to get out on to the water for some amazing views of the Lower Manhattan Skyline. This is also where you will find The Statue of Liberty and the Eilis Island Museum. You have several options including taking a Circle Line Cruise that also travels up and down the Hudson and East Rivers or booking a ticket to go out to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. There is also the free option of taking a round trip on the Staten Island Ferry

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.
