The Hudson River-scoping rooftop above the Ink 48 Hotel has a wraparound terrace and a glassy reflective pool, offering excellent warm-weather ambience for sipping cocktails and taking in the sunset. There may be a doorman-guarded entrance and a collection of beautiful patrons, but anyone can still feel comfortable snagging a spot on the couches and ordering a round or two.
