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. Put Manhattan Skyline on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our New York City trip planner .

  • It's amazing how they transformed a tragedy in attraction. Turned over and built a better and more modern Tower, with all the technology and wonderful views. Only the tower is worth the visit.

  • Walk there is priceless. An example of a proper urban space planning. It is possible to see the life of Manhattan from within. Be sure to check out the Chelsea market
  • I love the NY skyline no matter what time of the year. The city by the Hudson River is so dynamic! I have many photos of the skyline taken during different times of the day with the varying light.
  • City by Hudson River is so dynamically beautiful !!!
  • This is the centre of the universe. NYC is a buzz 24/7. You haven't lived until you spend good quality time in the city. We had 12 days and it simply wasn't long enough. Brilliant restaurants where the service is second to none. Wait staff know their stuff - from the hidden ingredients in meals to wines or beers. Luv NYC
  • Nice place to walk in NY
