Is there anything better than drinking on a rooftop in NYC? Well, listening to Phil Collins literally anywhere, but that's it. So, like Spiderman, you should make your way from the East River to the Hudson by stopping only on rooftops. Although, unless you produce your own super-strong web-like compound in a laboratory, you might have to get a cab.
Stop #1: Crow's Nest
500 E 30th St; Murray Hill; 212.683.3333
Start off at the Crow's Nest. Sure, it's the roof of a boat, but whatever -- the undervalued gem sits atop the Water Club on the East River, and they've got seafood, booze, and excellent views.
