Roofs in New York City are a special thing… The city is immense and no matter where you go, you’re surrounded by tall buildings. When you’re at the top, you feel like the smallest person yet you feel like the whole world belongs to you. After walking up the stairs of an East Village building (and feeling quite out of breath), you reach the place where you can spend some time with yourself and take in the city as a whole. You watch the sun go down that reflects from the glass windows across the street. On those days where you feel a little down, the roof seems just slightly magical.
