This 14th-floor roof deck is surprisingly fun (especially considering the best neighborhood watering hole is probably the bar in Macy's), with cheap beer, and an unpretentious after-work crowd. Plus, the Empire State Building practically stands next to this laid-back party.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
