I had dinner with some former co-workers from my old job yesterday. We stopped over at a friend's rooftop apartment in the West Village for drinks before heading out to dinner and this was the view from the top.
This view faces northeast towards midtown. The street on the left is West 10th and the one on the top is Hudson Street. In the top left corner, you can see the Empire State Building, which is located on 34th Street and Lexington Avenue.
So have you ever had a rooftop party?
