If you liked the view of the Chrysler Building in my last post, you will probably like this photo's perspective.
Or how about this photo of the Empire State Building rising above all the buildings on 34th Street?
Or this view across the East River of the United Nations Headquarters Building?
All of those views of the Manhattan skyline were taken from the New York City borough with the best panoramic views of all -- Brooklyn!
To see them all yourself, all you have to do is take a ride on the East River Ferry over from Manhattan to the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn.....
...or visa versa.
The Williamsburg Bridge and the lower Manhattan skyline can also be seen in the distance from this ferry stop vantage point. The tall building under construction in the right of the photo above is the new World Trade Center One.
New York Waterway's East River Ferry provides frequent, reliable service that connects Manhattan with various destinations in Brooklyn, Queens and Governor's Island.
Prices at this time are as low as $4 for a one way ticket to $12 for an all day pass with hop-on hop-off access to all terminals. It's a wonderful way to travel and a unique way to see the city. I hope you hop on board the next time you visit!
