Top 10 Spectacular Sunset Views From New York's Condo Towers

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, nigh-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 would soon rank 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 - 50 West, 50 West Street

Condo in Financial District

The sleek skyscraper plays a part in the graceful skyline concerto of Lower Manhattan, where a mass of towers gradually ascends from the waterfront toward the crescendo at One World Trade Center. As such, the smooth, 64-story shaft readily overtops its peers in Battery Park City to the south and west. Curved, double-height panorama windows gaze at the broad expanse of the New York Harbor. The Statue of Liberty and the Jersey City skyline bookend the Liberty State Park and the urban quilt of North Jersey, which spreads toward the setting sun.

#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 - 35 Hudson Yards, 500 West 33rd Street

Condo in Midtown West

The elegant, 71-story glass pillar ranks as the city’s tallest apartment tower outside of Midtown proper, yet its peers to the south, and north rise nearly as tall, and the office tower at 30 Hudson Yards to the east looms taller yet. However, the river-facing facade, which remains entirely unobstructed, grants every west-facing unit sublime sunset vistas across the Hudson River and distant Garden State hinterlands.


#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 - Vandewater, 543 West 122nd Street

Condo in Morningside Heights

The ribbed facade of the 33-story edifice looks upon a sophisticated urban setting, where collegiate eclecticisms of Columbia University mingle with Neo-Gothic dormers and finials of the Union Theological Seminary and the Riverside Church. The soaring church and the Neoclassical rotunda of Grant’s Tomb in Riverside Park frame the verdant Palisades on the opposite side of the Hudson River, where the sun comes to repose after its daily journey above one of the world’s greatest cities.
