Where to Find the Best Views of NYC?

The city skyline of New York City is always evolving and expanding, so it’s no wonder tourists flock to see the spectacular architecture and panoramic views on offer. While hailing a cab, taking a tour on an open-top bus, or walking the streets of the big apple is good, nothing beats experiencing the iconic city from higher up. 

When you come to stay at The Marmara Park Avenue, why not visit New York’s greatest observation spots and soak up the magic of NYC? Let’s take a look at some of our favorite recommendations. 

Empire State Building 

Once known as the tallest building in the world, the Empire State Building has long been an iconic signature of New York. With a 360-degree perspective that overlooks the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, and the Hudson River, it’s famous for a very good reason. 

Enjoy the views day and night, or opt for the morning sunrise to start your day on the right foot. If you’re a night owl, perhaps the setting sun and the bright lights of New York City in the evening will give you the wow factor. If that wasn’t enough, the building itself has daily light shows in honor of different holidays, with 16 million lights creating an unforgettable experience. 

Brooklyn Bridge 

The Brooklyn Bridge is visible from the Empire State Building, but why not visit the bridge too? While being a functional commuting route from Brooklyn to lower Manhattan, the Brooklyn Bridge has made a name for itself with its impressive architecture and magnificent views

As it’s used for commuters, it’s best to go in the early morning or later on in the evening to avoid crowds. On either side of the bridge, you will find beautiful parks to experience both the rural and urban landscape that New York has to offer. 

Belvedere Castle

If you’ve had your fill of modern architecture and are in search of something more historical, head to Central Park, where you will find the exquisite gothic structure of Belvedere Castle. 

Designed in 1865, the castle overlooks the beauty of the park which now has scenic views of the Great Lawn, Delacorte Theater, Turtle Pond, and the Ramble. You can even borrow binoculars to truly observe the nature of New York

Edge Observation Deck

Not for the faint-hearted, New York’s Edge Observation Deck is the highest outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere. The new deck is located in Hudson Yards, reaching 65-feet high, and offering jaw-dropping views of New York

For those brave enough, a transparent glass floor allows you to look down 100 stories on the city below, encased by angular glass walls. The best part? You can sip on champagne from the bar and restaurant to celebrate these incredible views.
