"This is my pick for the best photo opp vantage point of the city skyline plus the Brooklyn Bridge, and it's also right near my favourite ice cream shop Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory which is in a cool building that was originally a lighthouse."
PIER 11, SOUTH STREET
That iconic Manhattan skyline looks good from any angle, but especially from the water.
Only a little bit pricier than the subway but 10,000 times more enjoyable, free up your camera storage space as you'll be getting ultra snap happy shooting the likes of the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges, the World Trade Centre...I mean, shall I go on?!
You get it, this is all about the views, and a cheap way to experience NYC from the water.
