Central Park

Central Park has some breathtaking views of skyscrapers poking through the trees. My favorite viewpoints in Central Park are from Sheep Meadow, Wollman Rink, and the Bow Bridge.

Tudor City Bridge

The Tudor City Bridge always offers a good view but especially so during Manhattanhenge, which is when the sun aligns perfectly with east-to-west streets during sunset.

Roosevelt Island

The adventure starts with a tram ride over the East River (Tap-to-Pay and MetroCards accepted). The ride is great but the best views are from the island.

The MET Rooftop

The MET's location means you get to look over the lush canopy of Central Park and beyond, towards Billionaires' Row and Midtown.
