Photographing New York: The Best Rooftop Bars for Photography

 

Best Rooftop Bars for Photography, New York

(This guide is part of The New York Photographer’s Travel Book, which is available as a free digital download.)

The landscape of rooftop bars in New York is massive and ever changing, so it is hard for me to keep up. However, they do provide some epic skyline views of the city in an enjoyable atmosphere, so I suggest you do your own research besides what I am able to tell you about here. Some favorites of mine are Top of the Strand at the Strand Hotel, Refinery Hotel Rooftop, La Birreria atop Eataly, Ink48 at the Kimpton Hotel, The Top of the Standard, Jimmy at the James Hotel, the St. Cloud at the Knickerbocker hotel, Rare View at Fashion 26, and The Ides at the Wythe Hotel.
