I've come to realize my favorite place to experience New York City is from just about any rooftop. Not only is there usually a lack of human congestion, there's always a pretty killer view. In my opinion it's the best place to escape from reality, especially if you're constantly on the move as most New Yorkers are. I'll admit I'm guilty of forgetting to appreciate living in this beautiful city sometimes, so when I get a chance to take in the whole city skyline at once, it truly reminds me how great I have it and how happy I am here.
New York, I guess you're pretty cool.
