Manhattan Residences With Museum-Quality Views

Share this Post!

Many Manhattan buildings incorporate art into their architecture, whether it be in their lobbies and public amenity spaces or in creating world-class art hanging and viewing options inside homes. But one thing not all buildings can offer in the art world is direct views of the stunning museums in Manhattan.

New York City has some of the top museums in the world, most of which are massive budgets, starchitect-designed buildings that are art in themselves. Therefore, views of these creations are art in themselves, not to mention if you have a view of these museums, you are also in close proximity to viewing their collections on a daily basis.
