Sunsets at The Parkview
Manhattan boasts some world-beating sunsets. The combination of iconic cityscapes and languid summer evenings is the stuff dreams are made of. Even more so, when you’re gifted with somewhere special to watch it unfold. Residents of The Parkview—a 19-story luxury rental apartment building, steps away from Madison Avenue and the historic Carnegie Hill neighborhood—have just the alfresco on-site destination to drink in an NYC sundown.
While the city is more subdued than usual—and the usual rooftop restaurants and bars remain closed—what a joy it is to have your own spacious roof deck, festooned with pretty planters. After a hard day working from home (or harder still, doing the childcare), the roof deck’s comfortable wooden benches are ideal for reclining with a chilled beer or wine. Put a podcast or playlist on your headphones and watch the majestic skyline gradually change color.
The roof deck also features stylish picnic benches. On the weekend, why not whip up a few tasty salads and pasta dishes—in your contemporary kitchen with granite countertops—and pack them up in a basket? You don’t have far to go: your park in the sky awaits, with vistas of the East River, Upper East Side, and Central Park stretching out before you. And as a predinner aperitif, why not mix up a tequila sunset cocktail? Certainly fitting for the occasion.
We’ve already mentioned children—and if you do have little ones, they, too, are accommodated by The Parkview’s roof deck. If they aren’t yet worn out from playing in the nearby Central Park during the day, they can continue their escapades on the roof deck’s playground. How many kids can say they have their own outdoor recreation ground, 19 stories up?
The roof deck is there for you any time of day: a spot for early-morning yoga while the sun rises over the river, the right place for some fresh air while you’re on a long conference call or taking a half-hour lunch break with a view. Or maybe you’re doing a bit of bird or plane watching with the kids. You could even take a sketchbook up there one afternoon and recreate the dazzling summer views on paper.
Even as Manhattan begins to get back to normal—and the cornucopia of museums, shops, and bars surrounding The Parkview start to reopen—residents know that whenever they need it, their rooftop oasis is waiting for them.
