These are a just few of my favorite places to get stunning NYC views from all around the Big Apple.
What makes the Edge different from other NYC viewpoints is that it’s the highest outdoor sky deck in the Western Hemisphere.
It’s located squarely between the Empire State Building and Central Park, and the 70th floor offers an excellent perspective on both.
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 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.
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.
