A picnic in Central Park is nice, but a picnic on a rooftop in NYC can't be beat. The views are breathtaking, but I haven't been able to find a place to bring my own wine & food to enjoy a sunset since getting to know some friends with a open rooftop Brooklyn apartment.
Where can I bring my own food and drinks to enjoy a comfortable setting and good view of New York City or Brooklyn?
Hmmm, that's a good question! I don't know of any rooftops where you can BYOB, but I will tell you that Tartine, one of my favorite restaurants in town is BYOB. Also, the Roof Garden Café and Martini Bar at the Metropolitan Museum of Art has some of the best views in town and the drinks, while not cheap, aren't too bad.
