Some would say there are no better views, than NYC views. The skyline is one of the most iconic in the world, with all of those famous skyscrapers crowded into one tiny island.

Without a doubt, New York City is packed with countless places to take awesome photos on street level in downtown Manhattan, each offering different perspectives of the city that never sleeps.

The Best NYC Views

These are a just few of my favorite places to get stunning NYC views from all around the Big Apple.

The Edge, Hudson Yards

What makes the Edge different from other NYC viewpoints is that it’s the highest outdoor sky deck in the Western Hemisphere.

Top of the Rock

It’s located squarely between the Empire State Building and Central Park, and the 70th floor offers an excellent perspective on both.

Empire State Building

Despite being completely touristy, it’s an incredible place to watch the sunset or escape from the chaotic streets below. Plus, it’s kind of the most unmissable thing you can do in NYC.

One World Observatory

One World Observatory is located at the top of the One World Trade Center, which is now not only the tallest building in NYC (sorry Empire State Building), but the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere.

Roosevelt Island Tram

The Roosevelt tramway is one of my favorite (cheap) views in the city, and it might be just because not many people know about it.
