I always suggest visiting Hoboken by using the PATH Train and then walking north along The Hudson. The Manhattan Skyline Views are absoluteley unbeatable

It's my desktop image ever since!... Take of the boat tours, and PLEASE do it at sun down... you'll get iconic images you won't forget. Specific boat trips will take you right up to Statue of Liberty for great pics.

What can you say really other than it is a must. Go high to see it either from the top of the rock and the Rockefeller centre or from the Empire State Building, but even better take the Path railway from the World trade centre to Hoboken across the river and go to any restaurant along there with a window...

There are many ways to see the NY Skyline. Take the Staten Island Ferry, a NY Waterway Ferry, a Circle Line Tour, a helicopter. Rent car, go to NJ and drive along the NJ Turnpike. For prolonged views, take the PATH train one stop from the World Trade Center to Exchange Place, and immediately behind the station there is a... More

If you get the right day then there is no finer city view and perhaps even view per sé than of the newly shaped Manhattan skyline with the advent of the Freedom Tower completion - though the poignancy of the change never fails to prompt contemplation of and about the individuals and families who suffered as a cionsequence of 9/11....

I took a helicopter ride, and the view of the Manhattans skyline was even more spectacular than I had imagined. The view from the "other" side of the Brooklyn Bridge is awesome too.

Especially cool at night with lights from all the major landmark buildings, Empire State, Chrysler, One World Trade, etc., elevated transit is not only a great way to see this amazing city, but it's also quite economical. For less than 3 bucks, you can ride specific elevated subway lines offering various great city views.My favorite is the N or W... More

Best view of the amazing Manhattan Skyline in my opinion is via the water either on the free Staten Island Ferry or one of the ferries to Stature Of Liberty or river boat cruise. Some excellent views on the Skyline can be seen!!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
