Central Park, from Apartment 37 at 500 Park Avenue.

6 Homes with Incredible Park Views

Location, elevation, vegetation: These amazing properties deliver all three.

In New York City, an apartment with a park view is a keeper. And such a view becomes even more desirable when the leaves change each fall into their full Technicolor glory. Here are six stellar properties with extraordinary views of Central Park, Hudson River Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and beyond.

Penthouse Panorama

Located in the heart of Harlem (just two minutes from Marcus Samuelsson’s Red Rooster restaurant), this modern penthouse apartment at 2002 Fifth Avenue has three bedrooms and two baths. A floating staircase leads to a private rooftop terrace, which overlooks historic Mount Morris Park (also known as Marcus Garvey Park), one of the oldest public squares in Manhattan.

A Home on the Hudson

This two-bedroom, two-bath loft apartment at 377 West 11th Street in the West Village boasts 15-foot ceilings and double-height windows in the living area that face Hudson River Park (the second-largest park in Manhattan). On the second floor, the master bedroom and its separate seating area offer even more vantages of the park and river.

A Plethora of Parks

Battery Park City is one-third parkland, and this apartment at 212 Warren Street makes the most of that attribute: From its 12th-floor vantage point, the two-bedroom, two-bath residence overlooks the intricately landscaped Teardrop Park. Part of the newly built River & Warren complex, this condominium is also just around the corner from Rockefeller Park and the Hudson River waterfront.

The View from the 37th Floor

This luxury five-bedroom, five-bath apartment at 500 Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan comprises the entire 37th floor (for a total of 4,653 square feet), and provides sweeping park view from each sides—including a breathtaking bird’s-eye of Central Park—with even more viewpoints from the corner dining room, large eat-in kitchen, and master suite.

New Heights in Brooklyn

Nestled in Brooklyn Heights, this three-bedroom, three-bath corner unit at 90 Furman Street features a modern design with dramatic views. The dining area and kitchen (with custom walnut cabinetry and marble countertops) face Brooklyn Bridge Park, while the double-height living area and its wall of windows fronts the river and the Manhattan skyline.

Central Park Point of View

The spacious four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath condo at 15 West 63rd Street on the Upper West Side features views from the building’s northern, eastern, and southern sides. Both the corner living area and master suite offer unparalleled panoramas of Central Park, plus a sweeping view of the bucolic Sheep Meadow.
