We saw the best views of the NYC skyline on the ferry to the Statue of Liberty and back. You can see the city real well from the Top of the Rock and the Empire State Building. Wish we would've been in one of those...More

The City speaks for itself if you don't like fast-moving space and lots of walking then this place is not for you!

Coming in from LaGuardia you get so may great views of the skyline. Have your camera ready to start snapping photographs of the iconic scenes! Or you can stop in Brooklyn to get a great view from the landing near the Bridge!

On a beautiful day we took the new NYC ferry from Wall Street to Long Island City. We thoroughly enjoyed the Manhattan skyline on tour.

Obviously the skyline is wonderful, but it's even more woerful depending one where/when you see it. I watched it from the Staten Island Ferry at dusk and from the top of the Empire State building at night, and I would absolutely recommend both of those.

Stayed in Jersey and took the ferry to New York City. Definitely worth the extra effort. The New York skyline from the Jersey side is breath-taking.

You cannot get away from them because NYC is famous for the Skylines. Although it is not as tall but the Emirestate Building is the most recognized. The best place to see and to appreciate more is from the Brooklyn Bridge (day and night view).

Amazing views of NYC from the ferry to-from Brooklyn. No need to pay extra for an amazing view. I recommend crossing the bridge which is beautiful and go to the par I where to refresh at some cafetería and take the ferry back to NYC.

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.
