Thread: Top 10 views in New York City

    Default Top 10 views in New York City

    I would like to create a list of top 10 views of New York City apartments, and I would like to have everyone’s input. Please make your recommendations, then at some point we will vote to decide on the final selections. Here are my choices:


    One Central Park at AOL Time Warner Center
    View of Central Park, Southwest view of Hudson River


    The Park Imperial
    Views of Central Park, Hudson River, south view with Empire State Building.








    Trump World Tower
    Southwest view of Chrysler Building and ESB, northeast of Queensborough Bridge.







    Carnegie Hall Tower
    View of Central Park

    Of the ones above I would say that Trump World Tower and AOL would have the best views.

    I didn't think that Carnegie Tower had apartments.

    I imagine that 425 Fifth Ave would have some cool views, though not as high up.

    How about City Lights and Riverview in LIC, and all the DUMBO lofts, especially the Sweeney Building?

    Yeah, Carnegie does not have any apartments, but Metropolitan Tower does and the views there are stunning, especially with the apartments that have rooms at the apex of the angle facing north. ( I have seen pictures and *been in one those of the apartments. Unfortunately for the entire height, Carnegie is right next door. I mean RIGHT next door!)

    Trump Palace has some incredible views to the west, above the 30th floor.

    Almost any apartment along 5th and CPW along the Park just above the treeline.

    Almost any upper level apartment located on the "hump" of Manhattan's eastern bank.

    But one of my dreams would be to design and build a really tall tower in the center of Midtown. The views above the 40th floor, just above the "Midtown Tabletop", would be "da bomb".... in all four directions.

    And so many more..., but its getting late.

    I live in Chitown and doing so for the last (almost) seven years. Used to live on, and moved out of, Manhattan when I was younger. I try to go back as often as I can, which is not much.

    It is my most favorite urban environment in the US.

    Ah! As soon as I get done with some commitments here.

    Oh as for apartment views- the uppermost floors of Cityspire facong south. I have never been to such an apartment, but the views looking over all of the midtown towers would be incredible.

    I do believe that Carnegie Tower does have apartments. *The upper floors are definitely too narrow to be effectively utilized for offices.

    Very specious reasoning indeed!

    Check the building's official leasing website.

    It has no apartments. The elevators for the tower are only on one side, the east side adjacent to Metropolitan, and there is enough depth, ~40 feet on the highest floors, for offices.

    Yeah, but if only the building were as nice as the view...

    That's right.
    The same could be said about 425, 5th.

    How about the residential tower of the MOMA ? I bet some views are very nice...

    You mean Museum Tower, by Cesar Pelli. I suppose the penthouse units do, but I have seen pictures from inside some of the top floor units and the view is blocked in almost all directions. It is right in the middle of the "skyscraper patch", but it does not poke up very high. This is particularly true of the lowest units.
