Six NYC Event Venues with Scenic Views

Panoramic views of New York City’s Central Park, Hudson River, and Rockefeller Center can impress even jaded event attendees before the first morning panel starts or the first glass of wine is served at the evening reception.

In the course of covering events around town, PRNewser discovered some venues with stellar views. For our readers who may be planning agency or client events we compiled a list of six such event spaces, all of which are likely to inspire venue envy.

Most of these also have outdoor areas, with either a terrace, garden, or rooftop patio. They’re all over the Manhattan map, including a few that are centrally located in Midtown-based media companies. Others are in more remote locations, though that can make the views more open.

In the comments section, let us know if there are other spots with notable views that you’ve found while hosting or attending events in New York or in other U.S. cities.
