The Ultimate Outdoor Amenity
The best way to enjoy urban evenings after a long day or week at work? It’s got to be on a rooftop—like the one at EVGB’s luxury East Village apartments. This 19,000-square-foot landscaped roof deck provides multiple options for indulging in soul-soothing sojourns in the sun—seconds away from your apartment. Here are some ways to enjoy the high life.
Lapping It Up
When you can’t make it out to the beaches of Long Island or Maine, remember EVGB has an indoor saltwater lap pool—transporting you to the joys of coastal swimming, without the sand in your shoes and the seaweed in your hair. After swimming a few dozen serene lengths, refresh under one of the rooftop’s outdoor showers, then dry off on the sun chaises.
Getting Your Grill On
Nothing beats a good barbecue—and EVGB’s open-air grill kitchen is the ideal spot to host a cookout on high. Sizzle meat and vegetables bought from nearby East Village shops and markets—such as New Yorkers Food Market and East Village Meat Market—before serving up to your guests in the pergola-covered alfresco dining area. The combination of soft, shaded seating and inspiring NYC vistas will ensure any BBQ here is a hit.
A Whole Different Ball Game
How’s your bocce game? There’s ample chance to hone it on the roof deck’s open-air court. Once you’ve mastered this unashamedly languorous sport, which is related to French pétanque, challenge a fellow EVGB resident to a match. And once you’ve beaten them at bocce, the roof deck has a putting green for the next round. This summer could get competitive.
Gardens in the Sky
When you need to get away from it all, disappear into the roof deck’s tiered seating area. Ensconced in shrubbery, it’s an ideal hideaway where you can finally polish off that novel you’ve been reading for months or dive into that podcast that’s been recommended to you. The Serenity Gardens is another rooftop spot to be at one with your thoughts, and, as dusk sets in, you can retreat to the lounge area, fitted with fire pits that will keep you warm till the wee small hours in the late summer.
Views We Can Vouch For
Whatever you get up to on the roof deck this summer, you can guarantee you’ll be surrounded by superb views. From EVGB’s crowning glory, you have the luxury of gazing out over the East Village and the skyscrapers of Manhattan beyond—and over to Williamsburg and Brooklyn. How many rentals can boast that?
