Perched on top of one of the world's finest museums is one of the city's finest vantage points—from both a sight and cultural perspective. During the warm months, vistors can sip a beverage while taking in spectacular views of Central park, with the city's tony skyline beyond. Vying for the vista's wow factor are the the annual seasonal exhibits, including 2012's "Cloud City" by Tomas Saraceno, a splendid, perception-changing installation.
