A secret NYC rooftop pool retreat in Soho, the plunge pool is perfect for basking in the summer sun. It’s The James New Yorks’ sexiest and most coveted feature. Surrounded by inspiring views of the city skyline, the rooftop boasts a concrete “halo” roof that frames the pool deck, teak decking, an outdoor shower and plush outdoor chaise lounges.
