A new batch of images for Time Equities’ 50 West Street proves that sometimes birds really do get the best view.

The aerial shots, which were released in tandem with the first round of closings at the 191-unit condo building, showcase its panoramic views of Lower Manhattan. The Helmut Jahn-designed tower rises 64 stories above the Financial District, with the Hudson and East rivers, New York Harbor and the Statue of Liberty seen beyond its glassy façade.

Last month, the developer released fresh images for the building’s two model units — possibly to help unload the building’s remaining units.

Despite the thrilling views, sales at 50 West have been relatively sluggish. According to Streeteasy, 89 of the building’s units are currently in contract, though representatives for the developer claim that close to 70 percent of the building is sold. Three penthouses priced between $20 million and $24.5 million remain up for grabs, as the city’s luxury market continues to grapple with the oversupply of pricey product.
