If you’ve ever walked over the Williamsburg Bridge, you’ve probably noticed some people hanging out on rooftops and thought, “I’d like to do that as well.” But if you don’t have a friend who owns a penthouse in Williamsburg, go get a drink at Bia. It’s a Vietnamese restaurant in a little building to the side of the bridge, and, while you’re not actually allowed to eat up there, you can grab a drink at the bar and bring it up.
