  • Address: New York City, New York, USA
The skyline of New York City has starred in hundreds of movies, making it one of the most iconic man-made landscapes in the world. And while the former World Trade Center once stood as the defining image of this electric city, today’s landscape has shifted slightly—though it remains just as memorable. 

Travelers who wander the Big Apple’s crowded streets will find themselves at the foot of dozens of architectural landmarks—from the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building to the sky-high spire of One World Trade Center. It’s easy to marvel from the pavement, but visitors who want to experience the skyline in all its wonder need explore beyond the sidewalks.

Travelers looking to go all out can fly high above the city in one of the popular and grand helicopter tours. But there are still plenty of options for those on a budget. A trip to the top of the Empire State Building or Top of the Rock in Rockefeller Center provide visitors with a look at the skyline from inside the towering concrete jungle. 

For a peripheral view, walks across the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges offer travelers uninterrupted views of the impressive Financial District, while a ride on the Staten Island Ferry showcases the Big Apple in all its wild glory—and even gets of close to the famous Statue of Liberty. More intrepid travelers can head over to the shores of Hoboken, New Jersey. The expansive green space along the river is a perfect spot for an afternoon picnic with a breathtaking view of Manhattan’s West Side.
