The best way to capture full view of Manhattan is to look at it from the opposite side of the city. At this attraction, you will get an amazing panorama view of the NYC skyline. Believe or not, the night view is way more magnificent than during the day! Definitely check it out when you are on your way to NYC, or on your way back from NYC. from my home, take the Light Rail from Richard Street, get off at Exchange Place, walk towards the PATH station direction, you won't miss it!

After a long day of travel, if you have time, make sure you stop by this day spa. This is by far the most luxury, newest, and beautiful day spa in Jersey City and NYC.

If you are visiting NYC from my place, WTC is the first stop you will arrive by public transportation. WTC is located at downtown Manhattan, where has most of the important subway trains connected to it. I recommend you start your NYC sightseeing from WTC, then to midtown and uptown. If you have time, take an extra day to start from WTC and go even lower in Manhattan to Wall Street, then extend your visit to Brooklyn from there. Brooklyn Bridge and Dumbo are hot spots for nice pictures and very easy to go from WTC

Wall Street is very famous as we all know because it is the world's most important stock market is located at. As a former New Yorker myself, I've only been there couple times because it really doesn't have a lot to offer. However, if you have extra time, I do recommend to do a quick stop and absorb the atmosphere there, and don't forget to take a picture with the "Charging Bull"

after you walked the Brooklyn Bridge, come to this park to take a rest, if you are doing it towards sunset, you should definitely consider to lingering around a bit later to see the night view of Manhattan, it is spectacular! Please keep in mind, during summer time, the sky becomes completely dark around 9pm.
