The view is spectacular from here. There are a few ways to get to Hunts Point. The best way to find out depending on your mode of travel is to ask your smart phone, I you happen to have an iPhone ask Siri. (it's the best)

Okay, the Brooklyn Bridge Park is great and the Roosevelt Island Tramway is unique but neither provide the kind of view of Manhattan that comes at the end of a 4 minute ferry ride to Hunter's Point South Park in Long Island city. The Park itself was finished in August of 2013 and makes no apology for it's worship of Midtown Manhattan. The spectacular view comes complete with the Empire State building, the Chrysler building and the United nations building. The park juts out into the East River for an uninterrupted view. Benches and grassy areas await all facing the iconic buildings.

How to get there from Manhattan Island; On the east end of 34th street is a ferry terminal. You can download an app for your iPhone to purchase tickets which you can show as you enter the ferry from your phone. $4 each way and 4 minute ride to the park. The ferry continues down the coast so be sure to get the ferry heading back up the coast for the return journey to Manhattan. The ferrys start shortly after 6:30am and run throughout the day every 10 minutes. The drop off point is Hunter's Point state Park so when you walk off the ferry you are there. Of course you can get to the park without using the ferry if you are already in Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island city, etc. Great for a sunrise view of Manhattan as the rising sun reflects in the buildings.

In summary there is no better view of Manhattan Island, and for 30 minutes or more of your time it's great value for money.
