Enticing Terraces


Abode2 basks in the summer sun as we round up some of the most luxurious rooftop terraces New York has to offer ahead of the upcoming Memorial Day holiday

Considered by many in the US to be the unofficial start of summer, Memorial Day weekend also often coincides with many New Yorkers' first trip to the Hamptons, Fire Island, Nantucket, and other beach towns. New Yorkers opting to stay put for the holiday still look forward to enjoying the long weekend with a cookout or relaxing by the pool, which can be tough to replicate in the city. Nowadays, we're seeing more and more New York City new development buildings with rooftop terraces offering everything you need to entertain friends and family and enjoy the long holiday weekend at home, from outdoor kitchens with pizza ovens to infinity pools surrounded by gorgeous landscapes and views. These spaces have everything New Yorkers need to enjoy the long weekend.

With plenty of culinary amenities for hosting friends and family as well as ample space to relax and socialize, Maverick's rooftop terrace makes for the perfect Memorial Day weekend staycation.
