In the summer months, it sometimes feels a little lackluster to be living in a city of skyscrapers, but a perk of having so many tall buildings around is that many of them offer unparalleled views from their rooftops. Nothing beats an event on a rooftop or terrace when the weather is nice in New York City. Whether for a corporate event or a purely social function, what could be better than having stunning views of the Manahttan skyline as part of the backdrop of your event?
