Historic Rise of Neighborhood Rooftop Bars & Gardens

Rooftop bars and gardens are a summer favorite, especially here in Flatiron and NoMad (there are nearly a dozen)! Local spots sporting great skyline views include 230 FIFTHThe Glass Ceiling, and SERRA by Birreria, among others.

This month, the Flatiron NoMad Partnership recalls the history behind the neighborhood launch of the outdoor venues that were once known as “castles in the air.”
