“Stunning”
Review of Manhattan Skyline

Ranked #1 of 1,153 things to do in New York City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We walked a lot around NYC and used the subway which was brilliant, speaking to local New Yorkers all of which were very friendly...the skyline is super and can be enjoyed from the ferry across to Stain Island or from the Brooklyn Bridge

A must see event for any visitor to the city. This was the second time I sailed down the Hudson on the Circle Line and it was as special as the first time.

Possibly the most quintessential thing you could possibly do in New York City whether it's your first time or tenth time. This city is truly amazing. It's real, diverse, authentic, beautiful, very smelly, fast-paced, high-energy, never sleeping, confusing to navigate, and exciting in every aspect. There's so much to do and see and stepping back and taking in one of the most famous views in the entire world is one of the greatest experiences that makes you feel small and makes everything else feel significant.

This is a moment. Quite possibly one of the most memorable moments you'll have. And it's a site worth seeing in every aspect. We spent the afternoon crossing the Brooklyn Bridge into Dumbo and sat back, endured the cold and soaked in the view. It's amazing to look at a city and to think of all of the lives and stories that are happening simultaneously at any given moment.

There are tons of ways to see the skyline. If you have money, you can get a helicopter. If you're on a budget like me, take an afternoon and cross the Brooklyn Bridge into Dumbo and soak in one of the most amazing views in the world.

The best way for us to get this shot was taking the Staten Island Ferry. It makes for a great view of the skyline, Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

A visit to New York City; Manhattan; The Big Apple; Morning, Noon or Night, Whatever Season, always presents the magic that draws you to her. Uptown, downtown, midtown. east side, west side, this city, this island provides plenty to see, visit, explore for a day, week or lifetime. The Hustle, Bustle, Crowds, Smells all make for a very unique experience for the newcomer first time visitor or the seasoned "New Yorker". So grand a town they named her twice. The history is here, the shows, the traffic, the subways, the stores, sports, Churches, museums, parks, skyscrapers. Come see what you can discover around the next corner.
