The New York skyline never gets old no matter how many times you see it. With new towers routinely added to the mix and innumerable vantage points to take it all in, the skyline always seems fresh even if certain new towers fail to rise to the occasion.

As a source of optimism far and wide, New Yorkers have further embraced this man-made wonder in their backyard. Dozens of new rooftop bars/restaurants, observation decks, and scenic points have opened up in recent years providing visitors and locals with breathtaking vistas.
