10. The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The rooftop of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which is equipped with a bar and cafe, is always a fantastic location to enjoy views of New York City. Not only does it overlook Central Park, it also provides a terrific view of the skyline, combining elements of city infrastructure and nature.

While the Met allows you to choose what you pay for admission tickets, the suggested price is $25. Also expect to pay for a few drinks to fully enjoy the experience.
