Sunset at the STK rooftop in New York

I skipped a few nights here while Dorothy and I were in New York and northern Jersey. Last night we had dinner with friends in Manhattan. I was relaxing with a cocktail watching a beautiful sunset at the STK rooftop in New York. The view was looking west over the Hudson River towards Hoboken.

The rooftop lounge had comfortable seating with nice ambiance and a great view. It didn’t hurt that the weather was beautiful.

The restaurant is in a former meatpacking district that has become trendy, expensive, and crowded.
