Hudson Terrace Rooftop is a beautiful BI-LEVEL nightclub with Hudson River views!
With two floors of stylish and trendy decor it is one of the most frequented nightclubs in NYC.
Looking for a little Miami on the Hudson? This rooftop lounge comes complete with off-white leather couches, pink drinks, a remixed eighties soundtrack, and views of cruise ships parked in the harbor. Perched in the no man’s land between midtown and the West Side Highway, the wood-paneled space is a nice spot to watch a sunset, with floor-to-ceiling windows facing Jersey and a bird’s-eye view of the Intrepid. But once the sun goes down, be prepared for a heavy dose of South Beach—think men who leave hair-gel marks on the upholstery and women with exposed back tattoos.
To complete the experience, order some tuna tartar and a pitcher of mojitos and stake out a table facing the water. And if it (gasp!) happens to rain, you can head to the more demure salon area on the floor below or wait for the muscled bartenders to erect a tent and keep you dry.

Kellyand Ashanti. During the 2000s, Ja Rule was signed to Murder Inc. Records, which was formerly known as The Inc. Records and was led by Irv Gotti. Due to his hits with his collaborators, Ja Rule has earned four Grammy nominations, and has earned six top-ten albums, two of which Rule 3:36 (2000) and Pain Is Love (2001), topped the US Billboard 200.

In September 2013, it was confirmed that Ja Rule and Irv Gotti have relaunched Murder Inc Records.
In 2014, Ja Rule had released a memoir titled Unruly: The Highs and Lows of Becoming a Man, in which he reflected on his past struggles with a difficult adolescence in New York City and everything that followed, from breakout success and destructive rivalries to fatherhood and a two-year prison sentence.
