Frequently Asked Questions


When should I arrive for my rooftop cabin?

Reservations are strongly recommended, so make yours in advance. We ask that guests arrive to The Rooftop at least a few minutes in advance of the time they made their online reservation for. Note, the escalators also take a minute or so from ground floor to rooftop.

To access The Greens use the escalator located on the south side of Pier 17 (opposite Brooklyn Bridge side)

Guests who require special accommodations (ADA) may enter by using the elevators located on the ground floor near the Box Office (West Entrance).


How long may I use a rooftop cabin?

Cabins are reserved in 90-minute increments. If you wish to extend your reservation, you may do so based on availability only. Please inquire with the host when you first check-in.

How many guests can a cabin seat?

Each cabin can seat 2 to 10 guests between banquette seating and chairs.

Note, one reservation secures one full cabin. You will only dine with the guests in your own reservation party.

How big is each cabin?

Each cabin is about 12 ft. x 10 ft., and can occupy maximum of 10 guests.

Are the cabins heated?

While cabins offer heat, The Greens is an outdoor dining concept so please dress accordingly and bring your winter coat.


Guests are able to reschedule or cancel before 72 hours of their made reservation time. Do this within your Tock account.

Once within 72 hours of your reservation all sales are final and non-refundable.

For possible inclement weather, see below “WEATHER” section.


The Rooftop is also home to a row of multiple community cabins on the west side of Pier 17 overlooking the Lower Manhattan skyline. These community cabins—complete with seating, floor-to-ceiling views and a spacious floorplan for small individual groups (up to 8)—will be available for public access only during rooftop hours of operation, on a first-come-first-served basis. Community cabins cannot be reserved in advance, and are only redeemable in person.

Encouraged for community use at 60-minute intervals, these cabins offer visitors a place to meet free-of-charge for enjoyment on The Rooftop, and should they choose to bring food and non-alcoholic beverages from home.

No food & beverage will be available for purchase onsite.
