We gave you a peek at the rooms at the Gansevoort Park Avenue on Friday and now, to help you get through your Monday morning, we bring you some more photos of the hotel's three-level rooftop pool and lounge scene.

The showpiece is of course that 40-ft heated indoor-outdoor glass-enclosed, swimming pool—which will be available to guests only during the day, with public access after 6:30 p.m.

But the rest of Plunge is worth checking out here too—there are six separate event spaces, which will be used for a mix of public bar space and private parties.

Sliding doors can be opened onto narrow balconies overlooking Park Avenue and 29th Street, but if you're scared of heights, you may want to down a strong cocktail before stepping on out—because peekaboo windows on the floor let you look right down onto the traffic zooming around down on the streets.

There are plenty of other seating options inside, though, including lounge chairs with handy hooks on the back for hanging your purse or jacket.

This space will be ready for the hotel's opening next week, however the ground-floor restaurant Asellina won't follow until October. Until then, guests and barflies can order shareable plates at Plunge. The menu by The One Group will include a lobster roll, Kobe pigs in a blanket and a P.B. & J. Ice Cream Sandwich.

Separate express elevators will be available to take patrons up to Plunge--leaving guest elevators free and avoiding general delays.

Overall, the three-level rooftop area looks primed and ready for nightcrawlers.
