    Gallow Green is closed for the winter.

    Avoid the mixed drinks, food, and tap water (comes out of soda gun) at 230 5th.

      I would just avoid 230 fifth all together.....

      Birreria is not so much of a rooftop bar, but more of a sprawling restaurant with no view to speak of.

      Consider the rooftop at Ink48 for nice views

        The top of the Strand is great....in the summer....I am not brave enough to go when its cold

          Does the strand not have heaters or covered in the winter? I heard The refinery is really nice. Very open here...Just want to make this a day/night of fun and different..Just my sister and I...then off to concert afterwards..
