With NYC’s rooftop season here, on behalf of the Times Square Alliance, I wanted to share the news of recently opened and reopened rooftop spots to cool off and enjoy a birds-eye view of the Crossroads of the World, which is already welcoming back New Yorkers and visitors to the neighborhood this summer.
- NEW: Located at 226 West 52nd Street, the new M Social Hotel Times Square recently opened this season and features their signature restaurant Beast & Butterflies, a secluded oasis perched above Times Square with a wraparound terrace and is open from 4 to 11 pm daily.

As one of the most Instagrammed destinations in the world, Times Square includes 19,551 hotel rooms which make up 16% of the City’s hotel rooms, which is over three times as many as the next highest concentrated area around Grand Central. On average, the Alliance is now seeing 180,000 daily pedestrians in Times Square, welcoming more New Yorkers and visitors back to the Crossroads of the World.
