One of the best places to appreciate Manhattan's amazing skyline is from the water of the East or Hudson Rivers.
Eastern Star Cruises offer luxurious cruises on a private yacht - so you can enjoy the view in style.
The fully carpeted interior with mahogany and brass fittings offers the setting of a previous era, with a fully stocked bar and an award-winning chef onboard.
But if yacht hire is beyond your means then the public ferry to Staten Island also provides great views of Manhattan from the water.
Pier 61 is one of the Chelsea Piers, constructed at the beginning of the 20th Century.
The New York Times called the piers 'the most remarkable urban design achievement of their day' and they were originally used as a port for the great transatlantic passenger liners of the day.
As aeroplanes took over from liners, the piers became a cargo terminal, and then as cargo ships got bigger, the piers became impractical for this use. In the 1990s they were redeveloped and given a new lease of life, now housing leisure facilities including a golf club, a health club and bowling alley.
A chartered yacht is a stylish way to see Manhattan's impressive skyline.
