Just looking at the Manhattan Skyline makes me proud to be a Newyorker. The size of the building never fail to impress.

Nice park with amazing views of the NYC skyline. Views are unobstructed and you can see the Verrazano Narrows to the George Washington Bridge and everything in between.

Hoboken Waterfront Walkway

Reviewed By Tim121home - Southampton, United Kingdom

It’s a refreshing change from the hustle bustle of Manhattan to the relative calm of Hoboken and the views of the skyline are amazing. Visit in the evening for the illuminated view of Manhattan. Take the PATH train or very speedy ferry service.

I’m not a huge fan of art galleries but I can imagine if this is your thing you will love it. Lots of great displays, sculptures, portraits, landscapes and modern art. Maps available to help navigate this museum with ease. Spent an hour here but you could spend much much longer. Audio guides are available.

NY Waterway Ferry

Reviewed By Arissa P

The Port Imperial ferry service is excellent. The boats are on time and fast, it's super convenient, and the free shuttles on the other side of the river make up for the expensive ticket prices. I HIGHLY recommend taking this ferry instead of the bus. Keep in mind parking is not free, I often uber to the ferry, but it's still totally worth it!

Empty Sky - 9/11 Memorial

Reviewed By Corrado T

This is a place that commands silence and reflection, beautifully executed with a view on the WTC and Manhattan. I’ve been to many war memorials in Europe and this monument tragically reminds me about all of them, although the victims here were not soldiers, just ordinary people like you and me.

Visit the official website of Central Park to learn more about Park happenings and activities and to learn how you to help Central Park!

The park is big, with beautiful walkways, scenic views of the city, and lots if green space. There are also lots of things to do, like the zoo, ponds, and wildlife watching (mostly birds). We got food at the little place by the sailboat pond, and it was mediocre. All in all a good park, but I think I need to revisit when the weather is warmer to get the full experience.

We were so worried of visibility during this late winter spell, especially considering the hefty entrance fee.

Fortunately it was clear enough to have adequate vistas of iconic Manhattan and especially the amazing Empire State Building. Chrysler building views were partially obscured though.

Did not have to wait too long, I think less than 30 minutes to the top. Best views from 3rd floor of viewing deck.

A bit disorganized with the purchasing of the photos but I think worth the package price for the memories.

We saw the musical " Beautiful " and it was great ! The actress who played Carole King, sounded just like her! The staging was great and the music played by Orchestra was great! I've seen productions in London and NYC Theatre is the BEST!
