Reader Photo Of The Day: The Beacon Hotel IS The Place To Be

by ARIELLE KRIEGER · July 20, 2010

Regardless of what our mothers may have told us, the early bird doesn't always catch the worm. Apparently the rooftop of The Beacon Hotel was the place to be on Sunday and we just weren't fashionably late enough!

Much thanks to our reader, Austin Hill, for teaching us our lesson of the week. If an event calls for 4pm, there's no use in showing up for another three hours!
