My Trip To The City That Never Sleeps

By Billy Harper

I was lucky enough to have the chance to visit New York City a few times last summer. I just happen to have a friend who works for an airline and, on occasion, that meant I could take advantage of a few free flights to New York. As a true friend I felt it was my duty to accept such a kind offer, and sometimes we would go for a single day and other times we would stay the weekend.

We would have a lot of fun shopping since there were so many more stores there than what I would ever seen in my own town. We even began going to random restaurants and daring each other to try the most disgusting thing on the menu. After that, we would always go out and take advantage of the New York nightlife. There are so many bars and clubs that it was a new experience every night.

We were out one night and saw a huge line on the outside of this hotel. We asked one of the patrons what the line was for and they informed us it was for a rooftop bar. This sounded way cool, so we jumped in line.

Once we got in the club, we walked out to the balcony and just stood in amazement. To the north was a gorgeous view of the empire state building. I couldn't believe that we were actually here. This was the best night of my life.

There are a lot of New York City bars that you could visit on a trip to the city, but this rooftop bar was an experience unlike any other. Between the classic, fun atmosphere and the beautiful skyline, I knew this was going to be a completely unique experience.

After that experience, we decided to check out a few more rooftop bars, and none of them held a candle to the first one that we visited. I really wish I would have taken more pictures. I think that they have a photo gallery on their website, but that won't really do it justice.

Putting a bar on top of a building right in the heart of New York City was an incredible idea. The entire place was really nice. The place was clearly a hotspot, and everyone was dressed really nice. And then there were all the ladies that were completely gorgeous!

I'll never forget that trip to New York. It was only a shame that my friend wound up losing his free flight privileges, because that means I'll have to start saving my money if I want to make it back to that incredible rooftop bar. - 31805
