The View from Jersey City
You can't see Manhattan from Manhattan. Choice views are possible from Brooklyn Heights and Long Island City, but possibly the best possible way to view our city is across the river in Jesey City.
What a great day we have planned!
A ferry ride across the Hudson to Jersey to see the most awesome views of downtown Manhattan skyline! Stroll along with boardwalk by the water, feel the salt air breeze.
Sketch the 911 Firefighter Statue and the 911 Memorial Statue. Or turn your back to face inland to draw Jersey City’s Brownstones.
