While we were snooping around the Jonathan Adler-designed model apartment in the Jumeirah Essex House (f/k/a Essex House) hotel/condo on Central Park South, we were invited to the under-renovation rooftop of the 40+ story building. In what had to be some sort of insurance policy violation, we accepted. While we were tempted to climb the metal step ladder up to the platform that holds the famed red Essex House sign, we felt the views from just beneath the historic signage were picturesque enough. Plus, we had our bladders to think of. So here, for no other reason than just being a nice little pick-me-up for a dreary Monday afternoon, is a bit of classic Central Park viewporn.
