When you live in a town with over 8 million residents and just 300 square miles of land, there's only one way to go: Up. And what better way to be. For there''s something about defying the limits of our otherwise earth-bound selves that turns us loose as the neighboring birds. Whether it's the change in atmospheric pressure, the invincibility we feel on the fringes of the world's most recognizable skyline, or the memory job of a middle school 3 a.m. "rooftop rendezvous," partying where we're not supposed to is great, just great.
With Manhattan itself home to nearly 2,000 bar and restaurant establishments-- where exactly should one climb to indulge mightily with the Gods? If the options may seem endless it's because they are, but endless to whom is a different story. Listed below is Joonbug's Summer 5 most Accessible Rooftop Bars for summer 2011:
Hello again Joonbuggers!
Ok before we go any further, I have a confession to make, fashion week knocked me out. This past week the only thing I've been dancing with is the flu bug. In fact, the only reason I left the house at all was solely so I could bring you this weeks news!
Oh and something else, I may as well get all these out the way - I promised to interview someone special in New York this week. Well I did, but I didn't interview the person I had set out to, so I have got someone else who's a bit special instead - not that you would know the difference, since you didn't know who my original guest was ;-). But anyway, I'll keep that one for a column in the near future, when he gets out of bed, or has finished at the nail salon or whatever else he does when he's ignoring my calls!
