What can I say this is my former hometown and though 15 years, I never have had enough of this beautiful city. The best skyline view would be from the Promanade looking over the lower Manhattan. Breathtaking!

Whenever you're on Brooklyn Bridge, Jersey, Queens, TOTR, and you look at NY from afar, you have the feeling you were just dropped into a movie scene. Amazing experience!

Walk down to Chelsea Market and have lunch or start there and walk back to MidTown. The walk is easy, the air is clean and the buildings are cool along the way.

We enjoyed the Hornblower tour of the harbor and skyline and were disappointed we didn't have time to use the Ferry as a taxi. The staff allows you on-off privileges, so if you have all day and want to enjoy the lower part of Manhattan,...More

In my opinion this is the best view of the Manhattan skyline. Go on your weather app and find out when the sunset is. Head down to the Staten Island ferry for a free ferry ride. When you get off the ferry turn around and...More

We went in April. It was cold but lovely and sunny. I can imagine any part would be good in early October. We hired bikes and explored all over. Wish we were going again.
