Take the Manhattan Cruise you get to see it all. Take the longer cruise, leaves around 12, well worth the 30 dollars, compared to some expensive site seeing, it is value for money

Can't miss it. It doesn't matter how tired you are of walking Manhattan in New York City. You can feel you are part of a postcard.

Given the scale of the place, you could be forgiven for forgetring that Manhattan is an island. But take the Staten Island Ferry and look back, or a helicopter ride and the view is wow!!

You see this famous skyline in all movies centered in NYC and, let's be honest, it is a place where you must at least take one picture. It's a cool experience to have while in NYC

That first glimpse driving into town from the airport is always exciting. It is my favorite moment, returning. Wherever I have been I am always so excited to be home.

There's nothing in the world like it; it unique and free. You can go solo, with friends or family and you'll enjoy it. Plus you'll take amazing shoots.

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.
