Sitting on a bench, admiring the skyline you think you are on a movie! Perfect place to drink coffee or have a mate. Don´t miss it.

There's nothing like the New York City skyline. The best place to view it is from the Staten Island Ferry as you go across NY harbor. Recommend.

The City speaks for itself if you don't like fast-moving space and lots of walking then this place is not for you!

Coming in from LaGuardia you get so may great views of the skyline. Have your camera ready to start snapping photographs of the iconic scenes! Or you can stop in Brooklyn to get a great view from the landing near the Bridge!

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.
