Top 10 NYC Condo Towers with Best Sunset Views

New York sunsets illuminate a stunning bouquet of natural and man-made wonders - myriad rivers, bays, and harbors, the leafy canopy of Central Park, the peaks and valleys of the soaring skyline, and the rolling ridges of the Appalachian Mountains in the distance. CityRealty presents ten condo towers with a perfect setting for setting-sun serenity.

#1 - Central Park Tower, 225 West 57th Street

Condo in Midtown West

The future tallest apartment building in the western hemisphere commands absolute prominence at the northwest corner of the Midtown skyline. The 98-story supertall looks upon an exhilarating sunset-bound panorama, which stretches for dozens of miles past the Hudson River, toward the Appalachian Mountains nearly fifty miles away.


#2 - One Manhattan Square, 252 South Street

Condo in Lower East Side

The 72-story slab soars high above the low-slung Lower East Side, offering sweeping panoramas of Downtown, Midtown, and everything in between, from nearly all west-facing apartments. The upper floors boast awe-inspiring, near-unobstructed views across the island to the Hudson River, where the sun sets beyond the distant New Jersey horizon.

#3 - Fifteen Hudson Yards, 15 Hudson Yards

Condo in Midtown West

The 70-story, sensuously-curved skyscraper, which marks the southwest vanguard of the supertall cluster at Hudson Yards, stands virtually unobstructed at its south and west exposures. Residents on nearly every floor may trace the setting sun’s path as it descends past the World Trade Center, dips across the Harbor, and finally sets in the orange yonder to the west.

#4 - Brooklyn Point, 1 City Point

Condo in Downtown Brooklyn

The 57-story slab, which ranks as the borough’s tallest building, readily overtops Downtown Brooklyn’s rapidly-rising condo crop. The upper floors gaze upon a postcard-worthy sunset showcase, with the svelte silhouette of the Statue of Liberty, the shimmering surface of the Harbor, the spires and stacks of Downtown Manhattan, and the storied spans of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges, among other delights.

#5 - Skyline Tower, 23-15 44th Drive

Condo in Long Island City

The 67-story tower, which marks the western edge of Long Island City’s burgeoning skyscraper district at Court Square, will soon reign as both the tallest high-rise in Queens, and the city’s tallest residential building outside of Manhattan. Lowrise zoning in the Hunters Point district to the west guarantees unobstructed, breathtaking panoramas of Midtown and the Queensboro Bridge from nearly every floor for years to come.

#6 - The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton New York Battery Park, 10 Little West Street

Condo in Battery Park City

The 38-story tower at the southern tip of Battery Park City overlooks the park, the promenade, and the wide expanse of the New York Harbor. Floor-to-ceiling windows look upon the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, and the New Jersey highlands basking in the sunset light.

#7 - One Madison, 23 East 22nd Street

Condo in Flatiron/Union Square

Rising at the southern fringe of the Midtown skyscraper massif, One Madison heralds the steep transition from the mid-rise plateau of Gramercy to the rapidly-growing skyline around Madison Square Park. Though taller neighbors already eclipse the slim, 50-story high-rise, much of its sunset-facing west facade remains entirely unobstructed. The 180-degree view, which spreads all the way from Downtown to Midtown, centers upon the Flatiron Building in the foreground, which mingles with its ornate, pre-war peers. Further west, a string of architectural marvels along the High Line faces the blue waters of the Hudson River.

#8 - 56 Leonard Street

Condo in Tribeca

Herzog & de Meuron’s elegant 60-story tower soars high above the roof decks and water towers of Tribeca. Views from the staggered upper floors penetrate deep into New Jersey, yet even lower-floor apartments enjoy unobstructed sunset views.

#9 - 100 Eleventh Avenue

Condo in Chelsea

Jean Nouvel’s dazzling “Vision Machine” lives up to its name at the twilight hour, when the day’s last sunrays burst inside through a spectacular glass tapestry of 1,647 custom-sized, gently-angled rectangular apertures. The curved corner of the 22-story masterpiece looks straight upon the Hudson River, where the setting sun filters through the tall golf net at the Chelsea Piers, and reflects off the flowing curves of Frank Gehry’s IAC Building across the street.

#10 - 520 Park Avenue

Condo in Park/Fifth Ave. to 79th St.

Sunset views validate the record-setting price tags for the penthouses atop 520 Park Avenue. Robert A.M. Stern’s limestone tower looks upon the soaring Billionaires’ Row supertalls, the green canopy of Central Park, and the romantic, Art Deco skyline at Central Park West.
