Solar Eclipse Viewing Parties in NYC

Don’t look directly at the sun!  You may have heard that once or twice this week.  To put it more bluntly: don’t get a sunburn on your retinas.

The solar eclipse takes place Monday, August 21.  New  York is not in the path of totality, but we will still experience a significant astronomical event between 1 and 4pm.  Several New York City venues will be hosting solar eclipse parties or offering eclipse specials.

In our continuous efforts to “connect the fun to the fun people”, here are some places to experience the solar eclipse in NYC:

If you have the special eclipse glasses, you may want to check out the eclipse on a rooftop bar.  See our MurphGuide Directory of the top rooftop bars in NYC.
