How high are you right now?

If you’re reading this in New York, there’s a good chance you’re pretty high. NYC has more skyscrapers than any city in the world (other than Hong Kong.) Wow. With 240 skyscrapers, it’s easy to get high in New York. It’s a lot harder to stay high. Most people only work in high-rise buildings. But thanks to the many condo towers scheduled to be constructed in the next few years, there will soon be even more opportunities to get high and stay high all day long in New York.

Are you curious about the best places to go in the city to get really high? Then check out this list below of the 10 highest buildings in New York. For some of these, you may have to know a guy to get high. Others have observatories.
