  • "One of the numerous attributes of the R Lounge is that you can, Manhattan in hand, take all those sights in from a perch that seems to float above Broadway and Seventh Avenue...This is one of those views, and places, that remind you why you love living in New York - or, if you don't live here, helps make a case for why you should consider it."
