"The marvelous Manhattan skyline" Statue of Liberty - Ellis Island Tip by Tijavi

One of the most strategic vantage points for viewing the famous Manhattan skyline is Liberty Island. Having a pair binoculars would come handy - or if you have none of that, a good DSLR lens, which also allows you to take pictures of Manhattan's famous skyline.

It's a bonus when you're lucky with the weather - the skyline looks stunning against clear blue skies. If you have a bit flexibility with your schedule, it would be best to check the weather forecast to maximize photo opportunities.
