It’s rooftop season and there’s only a few months to take advantage of the gorgeous (albeit recently stifling) weather.

That said, every restaurant and bar pulls out their patio furniture the moment the sun comes out, so deciding on a place to check out can be difficult. Certain places return each year, while others may only appear for a limited time. How many times are you overwhelmed by all the possibilites that you end up going to your staple places instead of trying something new? For us, it’s way too often!

The team here at SecretNYC decided it might be easier to pick new places if we had a running list of all of them…so we made a map! The map below covers LIC, Astoria, Manhattan, and various Brooklyn neighborhoods.Whether you’re looking to put down a few drinks in the sun, or enjoy the evening breeze over delicious food, we hope our map helps you as much as it’s helped us.

Here are our picks of some of the best rooftops and outdoor spaces to enjoy this summer!

Map Key: Restaurants are orange. Bars are yellow.
