This summer has proven to be excessively warm, and as temperatures continue to rise across the nation, travelers everywhere are in need of a cool respite. The James New York
is known as one of the coolest hotels in New York
, but did you know that the property also boasts one of the best hotel rooftop pool decks in the city?
While becoming more and more common, a chic rooftop pool is still considered to be a rare summer amenity in New York City. However, on any given Sunday, you’re sure to find a cool crowd of hotel guests, business travelers, and even locals, basking in the sun atop the James New York.
With a concrete “halo” roof that frames the pool deck, the urban space features teak decking, an outdoor shower, plush outdoor chaise lounges, and a panoramic view of the city skyline. As the sun sets, the relaxing pool area transforms into a neighborhood hotspot.
Reminiscent of a classic 1970s pub, JIMMY’s is a popular year-round destination that spills onto the rooftop pool deck during the warmer months. With an inviting social scene, the leather-trimmed solid wood bar top is the perfect place to enjoy a refreshing signature cocktail.
