Gotham City always seems so gloomy and, if you are a movie fanatic, you are aware that Gotham and NYC are one and the same. However, despite the gloomy ambiance Gotham always seems to portray, NYC is actually quite vibrant, with amazing sceneries and views. Our JFK limo service, having been in operation in the city for years now, has come up with a list of some of the most scenic views in the city for your enjoyment this holiday season.

For all your transportation needs, consider contracting the services of our limo service in Long Island for a luxurious ride to any one of these majestic locations. Driving during the holidays can be quite hectic, but with our professionally trained and experienced chauffeurs all you have to do is sit back, relax, enjoy the deluxe amenities of our vehicles, and look forward to getting to your next scenic location.

Belvedere Castle

Belvedere Castle is one of Central Park’s best-kept secrets. This beautiful, Victorian-style castle was designed in 1865 by Calvert Vaux who was one of Central Park’s architects. The castle doesn’t seem to have a specific purpose, or perhaps its original purpose has been lost in time; it is quite an expansive park after all. Nonetheless, climb up to any one of its two balconies and view the park like never before. From here you will get to see popular Central Park spots like the Delacorte Theater and the Great Lawn. While you’re here, head over to the Henry Luce Nature Observatory and peer into microscopes and telescopes for a closer look at the wondrous works of mother nature. You could also borrow a pair of binoculars here and go bird watching.

Gantry Plaza State Park

Located in Long Island City, this 12-acre expanse of lawns, courts, and playgrounds are made even more alluring by the fact that the park is located right by the East River with a background of city’s majestic skyscrapers. Head over to Gantry Plaza State Park and enjoy a little friendly competition with your friends at the playgrounds. At sunset, witness the majestic merger of orange, yellow, and pink lights blending against a silhouette of buildings.

Staten Island Ferry

The Staten Island Ferry is not scenic on its own but on the ferry, you will get to take in some of New York’s most iconic sites for absolutely free. Whether you are heading over to Richmond for business or you just want to see the Statue of Liberty up-close, take the ferry and go up to the deck for breathtaking views from the Hudson River including amazing views of Lower Manhattan, Ellis Island, Liberty Island, and Governors Island.

Empire State Building

This list would be incomplete without mentioning one of the New York’s most prominent observation decks. Join New Yorkers and tourists at the Empire State Observation Deck and enjoy views of NYC that have left people awestruck since the building’s completion in the 1930s.
