the Manhattan skyline is intriguing, regardless of the time of day. Lit up at night is even more special.

Stunning views of Manhatten. What a great place to stay and with the PATH train just 8 mins to the WTC and 911 memorial why would you stay in noisy Manhattan?

Love the Jersey City Waterfront at Harborside/Exchange Place. No better view than downtown NYC and the Statue of Liberty. The Hyatt is beautiful and you can find parking fairly reasonable.

Drive downtown towards Grand St, Pacific St, turn left onto Johnson. Best time to go is early AM or early evening. Check out the 9/11 Memorial, the view of Miss Liberty, the view of Ellis Island. Enjoy the photo opps !
