Central Park East

View from Wollman Rink of Central Park East NYC skyline

New York City’s Central Park provides some amazing views of the city that surrounds it.

This view from Victorian Gardens Amusement Park (the summer operation of the famous Wollman ice skating rink) captures the iconic and luxurious Pierre Hotel on the right, the General Motors Building in the middle (one of the few structures in Manhattan to occupy a full city block), and behind it, the 1396-foot residential tower called 432 Park Avenue.

At the time of its completion in 2014, 432 Park is the tallest residential tower in the Western Hemisphere and the third tallest building in the United States. It is the second tallest building in New York City, behind One World Trade Center, and ahead of the Empire State Building. It also boasts a $95 million penthouse!

  1. That link showed the view from the master bath. incredible!
    but seriously … $95 million?
    Think of the good we could do with that money.
    Oh forget it! I’ll just not think about it and enjoy this incredible image, Stacy!

    1. I know, can you believe it??? Despite the spectacular view, I’m not sure I would want to live that high up. I can imagine the building swaying ever so slightly in a strong storm and that just gives me the willies!! Glad you enjoyed the photo, though 🙂 Thanks, Laurie.

  2. Such a spectacular shot Stacy and how fantastic how you have lined up the pencil of the new building against the GE. Reminds me of something out of a Cole Porter song – down in the depths on the 90th floor!

  3. It’s been years since I’ve been back and you make everything look so clean. Like a Hollywood version of NYC. Makes me almost want to go back to visit!
