The Roof at Viceroy Central Park has two great uses. First off, it’s perfect for when you need to impress a couple of tourists with a very nice view of Central Park. It’s also a great spot for when you want to get a drink after work, can somehow charge that drink to your company, and would like to sit outside. There’s a relatively casual patio with some couches and a couple of tables, and if you get cold, you can go drink in the little indoor area that feels kind of like an old yacht.
