Default Sailing From Manhattan Terminal - Port or Starboard

What is the best side for viewing on a cruise leaving Manhattan? We're thinking of doing a cruise out of New York and want to get the better views as we sail.

There are no aft balconies left and I don't feel like being awake at 4:00 a.m. when we sail back into New York.

Doesn't really matter, in my opinion. Every time we've left out of the Port of Manhattan, we've been on the top deck so we can walk from side to side and get pictures of the city on the port side and the Statue of Liberty on the Starboard side. If you stay on your balcony, you'll miss one or the other.
