The New York City skyline remains eternally captivating, an ever-evolving spectacle with new skyscrapers continually adding to the mix. The skyline retains its perpetual allure, even if some new towers fail to rise to the occasion.

As a wellspring of optimism for residents and visitors alike, New Yorkers have further embraced this man-made wonder, opening dozens of new rooftop bars/restaurants, observation decks, and scenic points to provide breathtaking new angles to take it all in. The luckiest of New Yorkers can enjoy an inspiring view from their own balcony, roof deck, or living room window.

In recent years, an eye-catching cluster of super-slim supertall towers has risen along the southern edge of Central Park. Reactions to these developments range from excitement to criticism, depending on one's perspective. The existing bunch will be joined by at least eight others in the coming decade, once again giving the Midtown skyline a new silhouette.

Upper East Side and Upper West Side residents rightfully fear the encroachment of these neck-craning edifices. One such tower underway is 50 West 66th Street, a chamfered 69-story mixed-use condo tower that will be dressed in textured limestone, bronze, and glass. To soar to a height of 775 feet, the development is set to become the Upper West Side's tallest building. Its controversially ingenious concealed mechanical void elevates the upper floors, providing those units with exceptional park views. The tower is now more than halfway up and sales have quietly started on its 127 residences.

The tower is already leaving its mark on the skyline, and is prominent from Sheep Meadow and Tavern on the Green. It will be apparent from the finish line of the New York City Marathon taking place early next month, as well as in coverage of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade as marchers and balloons make their way down Central Park West a few weeks later.

The striking contrast between some of the world's tallest buildings and the sprawling 848 acres of green space in Central Park remains a captivating marvel. For over a century, properties with views of this breathtaking panorama have commanded some of the highest property prices globally. The listings below provide their owners with such benefits, but as with almost everything worthwhile in New York, such prime real estate comes at a pretty penny.
