Manhattan Skyline, New York City

4.7
Recognizable from countless photographs and movies, Manhattan Skyline conveys the grandeur of New York City. Try to see it from many different vantage points, such as the observation decks of some of the city's landmark buildings. For a slightly different perspective of New York, try viewing the famous skyline from Queens, Brooklyn, or New Jersey. Helicopter tours and sightseeing cruises on the city's rivers allow you to spend more time enjoying the skyline, bridges, and parks and less time waiting in long lines.

  • The Manhattan skyline offers an impressive, unique display of skyscrapers. On June 20 and 21, 2018 I enjoyed walking through part of Manhattan admiring the beauty of its structures. On June 21 I got an even better view of the Manhattan skyline while riding the Staten Island Ferry, then later walking across the Brooklyn Bridge. Unique buildings like the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building make the New York skyline recognizable to those familiar with such structures. The diversity of the skyscrapers and lower buildings makes for a great view. Seek to look at the skyline from different parts of New York City to get different views. Seeing the Manhattan skyline is one of the memorable aspects of a visit to New York City. And it costs nothing.
  • I am shocked to see this beautiful landmark of the City that never sleeps, listed wrongly as "real estate agent" - thums down to whoever did this weird classification! Be that as it may, this is one place where I used to walk up from my office in Waters Street, just to enjoy the beautiful scenery and get away from the crowd.
