World's Most Amazing Views

Manhattan Skyline

Why It’s Amazing: Vintage skyscrapers like the Chrysler, Flatiron, and Woolworth are gawk-worthy, but nothing beats the iconic Empire State Building, which still holds the number-one spot on the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) list of favorite architecture.

Secret Viewing Spot: The year-round rooftop deck at Alma, in Brooklyn’s emerging Columbia Street Waterfront District, is an ideal place to study the lower Manhattan skyline over a margarita.

When to Go: The best weather’s in spring and fall.
