Winter’s relentless grip will give way, we promise. Come summer, even those of us deeply ensconced within a concrete jungle will kick it in under the shade of glorious greenery. You need a little of that right now, don’t you? Step in, sit down, and take in the warm air of these rooftop oases.

And we’re done. Do not disturb us, we’re staying here until the warm weather returns for real.
