From the famous skyline to the excellent shopping opportunities and world-famous shows, there is plenty of glitz and glamour but there are also quieter, yet equally intriguing, ways to enjoy the city. View the action from a yellow NYC Taxi or hop on board the Staten Island Ferry to take it all in from the water.
