New York City has always been a place where only tourists look up – until now. This new guidebook reveals the largely unexplored world on top of the city’s iconic skyline. Featuring new rooftops not explored in Adatto’s previous guidebook, 111 Rooftops in New York That You Must Not Miss (Emons Publishing/Distributed by ACC; $19.90 paperback with flaps) invites readers to experience a wide range of rooftops throughout the city’s five boroughs, from bars and restaurants, to gardens and farms, to libraries and art spaces. New York has a rooftop for anyone of any age, and any interest.

  • The roof gallery at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in Battery Park City features artist Andy Goldsworthy’s moving Garden of Stones, his only work on permanent exhibit in the city.
  • Riverbank State Park in Harlem is the largest rooftop in the hemisphere at 28 acres, with an Olympic-size pool, a covered skating rink, and spectacular views of the Hudson River – all on top of a sewage treatment plant.
  • The Meatpacking District’s Brass Monkey is a relaxed neighborhood bar with a High Line view. 

Preorder the book for more details on these roofs, and 108 more rooftops you simply must see to believe!
