Central Park View.


Does anybody know of a hotel terrace or bar etc that overlooks central park that allows people to go up and see central park from up high. I really want to take some decent pictures on my next trip. Ive taken some from one of the helicopter tours but they're not brill. Failing that does anyone know of a reasonably priced hotel that overlooks the park.

I got some really good photos of Central Park from the top of the rockefeller centre. It was a beautiful clear sunny day in October this year, you could see for miles. I think it is much better the ESB.

I agree the best view of central park is from Top of the Rock but dont agree that the view is better than the ESB particularly at night (you cant see the park from the ESB tho)

Depending when you're going to be there (as it's closed Winter) there is also the roof garden at the Met.

Definetly TOTR.

I think one big thing TOTR has over ESB at night is the view of the ESB lit up at night. It always reminds me of the scene from King Kong where he is swinging around the top of the ESB.

Go to the Time Warner Building located at Columbus Circle (West 60th Street and Central Park West).

You can get lovely views at a range from 2 to 5 stories up, from their luxury shopping mall, to their restaurants and bars. Not high enough to see the enitre park, but a lovely view.
