Like all New Yorkers, this glass and steel tower is obsessed with two things: location and views. In the case of this 463-suite property, one leads to the other. Situated right on the Hudson in downtown Manhattan, the urban oasis offers incredible views of the river (and the Statue of Liberty) from the seasonal rooftop Loopy Doopy bar. Even inside the building, there’s plenty of eye candy; the 15-story lobby atrium showcases masterpieces from boldfaced names in contemporary art, and those who’ve eaten in Atrio restaurant in the center of the lobby say the pizzas are works of art themselves.
Just below TriBeCa and above Battery Park, the Conrad is walking distance to some of Manhattan’s most important sights, from the National 9/11 Memorial, to Wall Street, the National Stock Exchange, and the South Street Seaport.
