Forget the new season of Orange is the New Black and July Fourth weekend. This is the summer moment you've all been waiting for. Introducing, our official 2015 guide to the raddest rooftops in New York City.
We won't call this list definitive, because rooftops are, after all, all about spontaneity. And, with three summer months to get your toes wet (literally and figuratively), there's just enough time to dabble in all of the different vibes this city's sky-high spots have to offer. Spend the rest of June drinking fancy cocktails and dancing the night away by a moonlit pool. In July, consider an elevated brunch, where the Benedicts and Bloodys only rival the views. By August, we'll all be ready to cut the frills, grab a seat, and chow down on tacos on a terrace in the clouds.
Allow these 10 spots to satisfy your deep-diving, fun-loving, hard-partying summer cravings. Cheers to raising the bar — on the roof.
