Manhattan isn’t lacking for views of holiday decorations from the busy streets, whether it’s the fashion-centric windows on Fifth Avenue, the Rockefeller Christmas Tree, and the many markets that pop up around the city. However, some lucky residents have a bird’s eye view of some of the borough’s most iconic decorations. Here are seven luxury residences with the best holiday-focused views in the city to help you get into the holiday spirit.

Residents at The Bryant have a front-row seat to the Winter Village and ice-skating rink in Bryant Park, one of the best places to do holiday shopping in the city. With a tree lighting on Thursday, December 5, holiday shops and free ice-skating, The Bryant, and the Winter Village, are truly in the center of the city.
The Bryant, the first residential building in New York City designed by the award-winning British architect, David Chipperfield, is one of the most exciting urban residential architectural accomplishments in recent history. Wrapped inside and out in signature terrazzo stone, residences at The Bryant are a study in exacting architecture with custom-designed millwork, floor-to-ceiling windows which open to Juliet balconies, and continuously high ceilings throughout. Situated on verdant Bryant Park, at the city’s geographic center, and high above the new boutique Park Terrace Hotel, every residence in The Bryant dominates a corner of the tower and owns panoramic skyline or park views. There is no more convenient address in Manhattan: The Bryant is steps from Fifth Avenue shopping, the vibrant Theater, and West Side Gallery Districts, Midtown Business District, and minutes from Downtown’s thriving restaurant and culture scene.

The views from 111 West 57th Street are unparalleled, with views over the entirety of Central Park; with a location directly centered on the Southside of Central Park, residents are perfectly positioned to watch the New Years Eve fireworks, as well as watch the miniature skaters on Wohlman rink in the southeast corner.
111 West 57th Street represents a commitment to the quality of craft, history, and philosophy behind New York City’s classic skyscrapers. The graceful tower, designed by SHoP Architects with interiors by Studio Sofield, will rise to a soaring 1,428 feet when completed. The historic Steinway Hall, originally built in 1925 by Warren & Wetmore, is currently being reimagined and integrated with the modern new tower as remarkable residences and amenities. A façade of terra cotta, glass, and bronze filigree will bring back the materiality and details of historic New York towers while taking advantage of the latest technology to create new standards of excellence in engineering and fabrication.

Located on Broadway and 61st Street, at the nexus of Columbus Circle, Lincoln Square, and the Upper West Side, Manhattan’s most iconic destinations are right outside your door. Holiday shoppers only have to walk a few blocks to the Columbus Circle holiday market in the Park, or to take in the beautiful “Holiday Under the Stars,” which is set to music in the entrance gallery of the Shops.

This exceptional limestone tower is the tallest residential building at Hudson Yards—and thus will offer sweeping panoramic views of the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline.
