In a city as crowded as New York, space certainly comes at a premium and so, too, does private outdoor space. Outdoor space is a highly sought after amenity in the city, and private space is even more desirable.
With the spring season here, it will soon be time to get outside and enjoy the warm weather and longer nights. Private outdoor space offers residents a way to "escape" from the city while taking it all in at the same time. Terraces and balconies are a place to relax, enjoy views, entertain, and dine.
Here are some of the most luxurious, lust-worthy apartments currently on the market in New York City with outdoor spaces that are giving us some serious spring fever!

The building features an exterior facade of rustic brick with the addition of classic terra cotta reinterpreted in a modern fashion. A sculpted interior courtyard provides an architectural surprise on the interior of the building while creating a light-filled atrium.
