    On a quest for the next big thing in the food industry, sisters Danielle and Laura Kosann have begun the journey with The New Potato. Profiling chefs, restauranteurs, and celebrities alike with cuisine questionnaires, the world of dining has reached a whole new level of delish.
    We like to think the rooftop is this city's answer to a sprawling lawn in the 'burbs. Where suburbanites spend warm evenings in their backyards, we prefer to head up above the fray. Sometimes, we even manage to get a grill up there. And, while your neighbors' roof (accessible only by a rickety ladder and furnished with rusty folding chairs) will do in a pinch, NYC has a number of lovely rooftop establishments where you can while away a hot summer night.

    So, we've rounded up the best picks you need to visit while the weather is still nice (we're halfway through summer after all). We found an outdoor pool in Brooklyn, Manhattan spots with killer views, and the perfect place to spend a whole Sunday Funday. Ahead, 10 rooftops too good to miss.
