Another in my series of NYC winter rooftop experiences:
It’s been cold here. I personally witnessed ice floes on the Hudson. I’d even say it’s been cold enough for an Eskimo! And now New Yorkers (and anyone visiting our frigid city) can reserve one of four igloo-shaped, temperature controlled, clear plastic bubble tents, furnished with sofas, rugs and a TV, at the sprawling rooftop bar known as 230 Fifth.
The minimum drink/food order required to reserve the 12-person party bubble is $500, so with a full house (tent?), including a respectable tip, each guest would need to contribute just $50 for up to five hours of rooftop bubble time.
The “FIFTHgloos,” as 230 Fifth is calling them, will be available until March 31.
By the way, 230 Fifth will be featured in my upcoming book, “Roof Explorer’s Guide: 101 New York City Rooftops.” The book is due out as soon as it warms up a bit around here…
