As we look towards warmer weather we can’t help but get excited for the New York City patio season. We’ve listed some of our favorite dining places in the past but this time we are looking at it from a whole new angle, a higher one! New York’s Hotel Pennsylvania is looking at the best places to grab a bite or drink above the bustling streets.
In a city as big as New York there are endless dining and drinking establishment options but there’s something to be said about a rooftop patio. The atmosphere is unlike anything else when you’re floating above the crowded streets and amongst the twinkling lights of the skyline with only the night sky or warm sun above you.
Here are our favorite elevated patios in the city:
