If you will be in NYC this summer, there are some interesting bars you can hop to from one hotel rooftop to another. Here are some of the best where you can enjoy a round of drinks, the view, some fresh air, and a good company of friends:

Above 6

The people at Six Columbus has made a great stride in terms of what you can see at Above 6. Before, you will be staring at a drain pipe but right now, you will be able to get a glimpse of the Central Park. This rooftop getaway is inspired by the 60s and gives you that arty and minimalist vibe. Sip some Hummingbird while enjoying the panorama.

When you’re walking around New York City, make sure you walk quickly. If you suddenly stop walking, the face of the person behind you will collide with your back. That same person will not think twice of yelling at you before he or she decides to go on her way in the same manner: fast.

It’s not a rude gesture, really. It’s just their nature. New Yorkers are always moving and they live around the clock. They function on a schedule that any wasted moment can cause them money, even a job.

That’s why everyone seems so angry in New York. They walk, talk, eat, shop, and basically go about their daily routines so fast that they forget to bask in the awesomeness of this great city. The noise around the city is also the result of everyone working round the clock.
