Lady Liberty as seen from the Staten Island Ferry. The view is amazing and the price is right.
My first trip to Manhattan was love at first sight. I don't want to move there, but I want to go back and visit -- often. There is so much to see and do!
Tourist tip: Go visit the Empire State building after dark. The view is fantastic and the lines aren't.
Best bargain: $7 Metrocard that lets you ride all over the city via subway and bus from the first time you use it until 3am the next morning. If you're staying longer, the rates only get better. Maps are free at the information desks and the New Yorkers we met were friendly and helpful when we needed directions.
