With views like this, how can guests close their eyes long enough to get any sleep?

The upper floors of the new hotel in Brooklyn Bridge Park have jaw-dropping vistas — of the World Trade Center and the Lower Manhattan skyline, the Brooklyn Bridge, the DUMBO Clock Tower and the red neon sign that says “Watchtower” on the former headquarters of the Jehovah’s Witnesses.

You can drink in these staggering views even if you’re not staying at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge — if you stop by for a drink at its recently opened rooftop bar.

The new hotel at 60 Furman St. is part of Pierhouse, a combination condo-hotel complex. 

The condo development has generated legal controversy about whether it partly blocks the protected view plane between the Brooklyn Heights Promenade and the Brooklyn Bridge.  

The 1 Rooftop, as the bar is called, is a selfie-snappers’ paradise.
