StreetEasy's Most Wanted: Rooms with a view… of the Empire State Building

By Joseph Lazauskas  | March 15, 2012 - 1:58PM

Everyone loves a nice view, and New Yorkers apparently especially like that view to include the Empire State Building. This week's Most Wanted—the ten apartments StreetEasy browsers saved more frequently than any others—includes three listings that boast views of the famous skyscraper.

Sure you can see the Empire State Building from this $699k one-bed co-op  on East 16th Street (which also made our Open House Scorecard on Monday), but the better view is of the lovely St. George's Church and Seminary, which can be seen from both the living room and bedroom. And if you want to experience the city, rather than just gazing at it, Stuyvesant Park is right outside your door.

The view isn’t actually the most enticing aspect of the $2.195m six-room penthouse, on West 15th Street, pictured at left. The real draw may be the private roof deck and the beach house room with a full bath. The listing also notes that the unit is “pindrop quiet” — though with pets allowed, you never know when a not-so-pindrop-quiet puppy is going to break the silence.

This $475k one-bedroom condo on East 14th Street offers views from the Freedom Tower to the Empire State Building. The listing also mentions a “beautiful new planted roof deck” — which is good because at 510 square feet, this apartment could leave you looking for some fresh air.
