NYC is tall! If you drive into the city you can see the skyline from many miles away. Top right picture you see the Empire State Building as seen from Williamsburg Brooklyn.
Center right picture you see some of the pier at South Street Seaport and the skyline of Battery Park in the distance.
Bottom right picture you see part of the Brooklyn Bridge. The bridges surrounding the city are just awesome. A walk across the Brooklyn Bridge is not just great exercise but you'll get breathtaking views of the city.
