A Room With A View

04.03.22

New York City is a place that stands alone and needs no introduction. Every street and corner is engrained with history and culture that dates back generations, and holds meaning and memories to people from all over the world. Much like how individual people have locations and monuments that provoke emotion and memory, the city has a few of its own. The number of iconic landmarks in and around New York City speaks for itself, and better explains why getting to see and experience these spots is so sought after. Places like The Statue of Liberty, Central Park, and Empire State Building are all coveted places that some people only hope to see in real life.

But, what if you could wake up to these views in the comfort of your own home? Abode2 round-ups our pick of luxury Manhattan residential buildings that offer breath-taking views of the most beloved New York City landmarks
