We discovered on my last night in New York City that our apartment building had an accessible roof with amazing views. We stayed on the lower tip of Manhattan in the Financial District which was really nice because it was so much quieter than the rest of the city. It also provided these incredible night time views.
We saw the Statue of Liberty and Liberty Island.
From the other side of the roof we saw Ground Zero and the construction of the new World Trade Center.
And finally, we saw a gorgeous glimpse of the Manhattan skyline.
