Yeah I've had a meeting in that building overlooking Central Park. It's a great view.

I can only speak to places I've been, so I apologize for the lack of i-banking offices.

The nicest views I've seen are probably either Morningstar's office in 4WTC, or any of the several firms that call Brookfield Place home.Β  Some of the offices there look out on WTC on one side and the marina and JC on the other.

Believe it or not, a lot of places have pretty bad views.Β  Bloomberg and MSCI immediately spring to mind.Β  The spaces are great, but given where they are located you're basically just staring across the building across the street.Β  Nasdaq is somewhat similar.Β  Great space, and they try to have great views, but it's times square, and all the disgusting stuff that involves.Β  Their 10th floor event space with a big balcony on top of their giant screen on 43rd & Broadway is cool to visit though.Β  The CFANY (NYSSA) event space is both mediocre and has pretty meh views in the mid 40s as well, but it's not really an office.

I'm also close enough to Goldman that I'll guess that it has pretty mediocre views too.Β  You're either staring across the west side highway at the Verizon building and 1 WTC, south at AmEx tower, or trying to angle over the rest of battery park city into jersey if you're on a high enough floor.

The only difference between Asset Management and Investment Research is assets. I generally see somebody I know on TV on Bloomberg/CNBC etc. once or twice a week. This sounds cool, until I remind myself that I see somebody I know on ESPN five days a week.

Is Brookfield Place nice? It seems like it would be just ok, but I've never been there.

I used to work at 57th / Madison and a lot of us from the building would eat at the Trump Cafe (I got 15% off). I was talking to some guys who were on a higher floor than me that claimed they had the 'best view in the city.' I asked what they were talking about and apparently a modeling agency across the street would do topless photo shoots on the patio. They said they had binoculars in the office and everything rofl.

Someone said KKR, but it's their old office. Their new office is sick AF, but their old one had a better view. In terms of current ones, Apollo is fucking awesome. Lazard (and Lazard MM NYC) probably the best.

If you're in Chicago, you can probably get a better apartment view than any office.
