1. New York City
The Big Apple has not only has one of the most amazing skylines in the U.S., but also in the entire world. There are 204 buildings — a number that will continue to grow thanks to the ongoing construction of a few notable luxury residential buildings — in NYC that stand taller than 500 feet, including the iconic Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building. The addition of the sky-high Freedom Tower downtown puts this skyline even further over the top. Best of all, you can experience the incredible views from essentially any angle, whether its from the shores of Brooklyn or across the Hudson River in New Jersey. Better still, the top of Rockerfeller Center offers an amazing view from above one of the greatest cities in the world.
