Jersey City's Liberty State Park is directly across the Hudson River from Downtown Manhattan. From this park you can access the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and Liberty Science Center. The park also has great views of Midtown Manhattan, including the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building, as well as southern Jersey City, home of New Jersey's tallest building, 30 Hudson Street, also known as Goldman Sachs Tower.
I've visited this location before, on April 16, 2004, with my old camera. These photos can be found on the daily page.

Tip of Exchange Place Tower: 490 ft. ranks it 4th in Jersey City,
but it's still taller than every building in NJ outside of the city.
