The View From A Hot Brooklyn Rooftop

On Saturday, Kish and I paid a brief visit to Russell, who is sharing space with multiple roommates in Brooklyn on the top floor of an aging apartment building.

His apartment includes access to the roof by steel ladder up a narrow passageway.  On a hot day, the rooftop affords better access to the cooling breeze, but you also feel the heat pulsing from the black tar roof.  And there is no railing, which is a bit disconcerting when you need to walk to the edge of the roof to get the view of the lower Manhattan skyline that appears in the far distance in the photo above.
