Upper East Side, New York City, New York
New York’s bridges are some of the city’s most scenic assets, from the soaring elegance of the Brooklyn Bridge to the humbler -- but still impressive -- Queensboro Bridge in Midtown East. The latter was made even more famous after it made cameos in 2002’s “Spider-Man” and 2012’s “The Dark Knight Rises.” The bridge is on full display from many spots at Midtown East’s humble Bentley Hotel. A good amount of its sharp rooms have great views of the bridge, the East River, and the Queens skyline across the water (yes, Queens has its own skyline -- one that’s growing by the month). Sunrises over the river can be a particularly atmospheric sight, so opt for a room like a Junior Suite.
