One of my favorite locations to shoot year round is the Palisades Cliffs. The Hiking trails along the top and the boat basins along the bottom are filled with beautiful photo ops. One path that I follow multiple times a year begins at the Woman’s Federation Monument, a small Castle which allows access to its roof, and follows North along the cliffs. There are multiple locations that look absolutely stunning.
Parking is available at this location.
You’ll walk over the Palisades Interstate Parkway and down a path. The Woman’s Federation Memorial is a short walk along the path. Left side of the fork. This area can be muddy, so make sure you’re wearing good hiking boots.
Should you prefer to avoid hiking, Henry Hudson Drive provides some beautiful views at their picnic areas and boat basins. The Alpine Boat basin features views of the cliffs and the City and the Englewood Boat Basin features a stunning view of the George Washington Bridge.

They want a $200 non-profit permit to photograph. http://www.njpalisades.org/permitPhoto.html
I know NJ has ridiculous laws, etc, but that is unbelievable.
