This is one view that has been made immortal through TV shows and movies and one that I had to see for myself. And this view presented itself to me when I took the Statue Cruises boat from Battery Park in downtown Manhattan to the Statue of Liberty. There was a nip in the air and dark clouds were menacing above me, but in spite of the tough elements, I have to say that this is one skyline that I will remember and cherish for a long time.
The tall building that you see is the new World Trade Center 101 and to its right is downtown Manhattan, the New York Stock Exchange and most of the Wall street. Mid town, the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center and other prominent buildings are in the background, but are not prominent in this picture. This is one view that you have to see for yourself on your next trip to New York City.
