Aside from about a billion reasons why I love New York City, there’s much to be said about Summers in the city as well.  Shifting from the sweltering Miami heat to much more breathable air along with rooftop views of beautiful highrise architecture, sunlight peaking through the tallest buildings, and endless people hurriedly wandering the streets of NYC, truly feels like you’re in the center of the world (if even for a moment).  On the opposite side of the spectrum, basking in the rooftop glory in the city is quite a change of speed in comparison to New York Fashion Week’s bloody cold weather.

During my NYC experience with Marriott Hotels, I discovered a gem atop the Courtyard Marriott New York Manhattan/Herald Square.  The Scandinavian-chic d├ęcor of Monarch is one of the intricate details of the rooftop lounge, encompassing an indoor lounge with a seductive allure, Vintage bricks, glass doors, teak and grey custom Terrazzo tiles, and accents of true Manhattan elegance.  Let’s just say with 5,000 square feet on the 18th floor and a photographic view of iconic Empire State Building, all possible thoughts of doubt or stress go completely out the window (if there were any).
