Lower Manhattan in New York City

The City That Never Sleeps. Manhattan
Ahhh, New York City. Well, Manhattan specifically, one of New York's five boroughs. This aerial view is of lower Manhattan, what New Yorkers consider the heart of the city. That's New Jersey sparkling across the Hudson River in the distance. And that's the Brooklyn Bridge pictured at the bottom, linking the island of Manhattan to the borough of Brooklyn.
Anytime is the right time to take in the nighttime views of New York City from high above, but the cityscape in January might be especially beguiling. For one thing, you won't have to fight crowds to stand at the windows to view the dazzling lights. May we recommend the observation decks of the Empire State Building, Top of the Rock, and the One World Trade Center Observatory? Happy gazing.
