Rooftop Refuge

Having roof access or a terrace, by New York City standards, is big time.  If you can snag a property with this kind of airspace, you've made it.  Place some lovely yet durable outdoor furniture, pot some plants & trees, and you've got your very own Central Park atop your apartment building!  Heavenly!

See that hedged skylihgt? And the steps leading up the the vegetable garden? Awesome.

There are a few dozen choice rooftop/terrace bars and restaurants in New York, which get swarmed all summerlong, but to have one's own outdoor roof space??  That's the tops!
