Perched on the 26th floor, this five bedroom, seven and a half bathroom condo at 2 River Terrace (on the market for $12 million) boasts panoramic water views from the midtown skyline to the Statue of Liberty.


The 4th of July is just over a week away, so where are you planning to watch the fireworks? You could hustle for a spot along the East River (Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks kick off at 9:20 pm from five barges along New York City’s East River, from the South Street Seaport to the Midtown Tunnel) or stake out some territory in Lower Manhattan (Jersey City’s Freedom & Fireworks Festival culminates in a pyrotechnic display at around 9:30 pm just across the river in Liberty State Park). Or, you can enjoy this year’s light show (and those for years to come) the Brick Underground way, by scoring yourself one of these apartments, all of which come with fab views of all the action.

With views of New York Harbor, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, this four-bedroom, five-bath condo at 10 Little West Street (on the market for $14.495 million) is the perfect place to catch the Jersey City fireworks display.


This full-floor, three-bedroom, two-bath penthouse loft at 190 West Street in Greenpoint (listed at $4.25 million) has exposed brick walls, original factory beam ceilings, heated hardwood floors and an East River-facing living room with oversized windows—all the better for taking in the sparklers.


A 2,400-square-foot duplex condo at 58 Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg (yours for $3.799 million) has a 28-foot wide great room overlooking the East River and the Manhattan skyline beyond.


Thanks to its semi-circular living room with 15 windows, this three-bedroom, three-bath condo at 330 East 38th Street (priced at $2.359 million) offers an unparalleled view of the July 4th festivities.


This 3,000-plus-square-foot three bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath condo at 345 East 46th Street (for rent at $28,950/month) has a wall of 11-foot floor-to-ceiling windows, not to mention two floor-to-ceiling bay windows in the living and dining rooms, from which you’ll score totally unobstructed views of the East River.
