The best of New York City webcams!!

Like what I did for London, it's time to present you the best of the NYC webcams - located in the heart of the city that never sleeps, and you can make out by yourself why the city got this moniker. So, let's start the tour!

1) The fifth avenue webcam:

This is a view looking up north Fifth Avenue from the southeast corner of 45th Street. A new picture is available every 5 minutes (it does not update automatically yet).

2) Three webcams located at the top of Worldwide Plaza at 8th avenue and at Weehawken, NJ:

Looking southwest and southeast from the Worldwide plaza: At the second link, notice the Times Tower and the Empire State Building.

The next one is located at Weehawken, NJ. You can get a nice view of the Manhattan skyline and the Hudson river.

3) West New York, NJ cam:

Located at the corner of 65th and Park Av., it refreshes every few minutes.

4) The Rockefeller Center cam:

Live images from the heart of the center.

5) The Little Italy Cam:

This camera is brought to you by Il Cortile Restaurant and Buona Notte Restaurant, two of the most famous Italian bistros in the heart of New York's Little Italy. Located on a rooftop at the famous Mulberry street.

6) Webcam panoramas from the top of the ESB!

Real time panoramas from the top of the tallest and most famous skyscraper of NY, the Empire State Building! You can zoom on the images too!

7) Ground Zero webcam:

Four webcams overlooking the WTC site and its progress in building the new WTC and the Freedom Tower.

8) The Colombus Circle cam:

Located in one of the most busy intersection in Manhattan - the converge of 8th avenue, the Broadway, and the Central Park South - you can make out why New Yorkers get tricked by this circular square!

9) The Midtown cams:

Three cams on one page - the first one at the intersection of 8th avenue and 34th street, where the new Penn Station will be relocated. The second one features a north view of Midtown from the ESB and the last looks south from the same building:

The best and the last ones! :

10) The Times Square webcams:

Known as "the crossroads of the world", Times square is always packed with people and traffic. Here you can find sixteen webcams (!!), positioned on differents spots of the square. The last four cams are located inside the Hawaiian Tropical Zone bar, but the most outstanding of them (and the best webcam in the world) is Cam 1, which is a live 24/7 streaming cam with sound, so you can also hear the bustle and hustle of the metropolis. This cam changes view automatically every few seconds, so you can spot various famous landmarks as the MTV studios, Times Square One, the TKTS booth and the Marriott Marquis Hotel. So, what you're waiting for? Go on and get a glimpse of the NY from the comfort of your couch!!
