New York Narrative 4: Up On the Roof

One fun new feature on this trip to NYC was Jessie's rooftop terrace. It only opened last year so we haven't been able to experience it before.

It's so nice cause she's right in the middle of everything so the views are fantastic. There are also tables and benches and pots of herbs that the building residents are allowed to pick from.

It was a little bit of paradise in the concrete jungle and we enjoyed it every day. We even had a couple of our meals up there. Here are some of the views from above.

That's 34th street, where you may see a big parade on Thanksgiving Day.

Tessa met some of the older girls who live in the building and made quick friends. They played hide and seek while we grownups enjoyed some cocktails. I couldn't help thinking...what would it be like to be a KID in Manhattan? And here I thought WE were 'city folk'. Ha!
