We got a great view of the Manhattan skyline from Liberty island. I’m sure there’s other nice places to see the skyline, especially at night, but we enjoyed this view very much.

Some say it's an architectural mish-mash and it is that, but it's also exciting and amazing from just about any vantage point.

It is so great view to see. I definitely strong recommend, and next time, I want to search the chance to see it in the night.

Excellent - worth doing on a City Pass. There will be long lines but it is worth the visit. Plan two hours and go on a sunny day.

Our transatlantic cruise ended in the early morning hours in NYC. It was a magnificent site to see the Ststue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline...a perfect welcome back to the USA.

The best place to view the skyline in NY would be from Brooklyn bridge or the Brooklyn promenade. Be sure to see this both during the day and at night.

My friend and I took our daughters to NYC for the weekend and seeing the skyline is always the best. Several ways to see it. So different from upstate NY. We ha a great trip.

You can really only see the skyline from the river. I managed to catch some great views of WTC and the financial district from the Staten Island Ferry one clear day. Ideal as it is a free service. A quick trip further up east of...More

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.
