Top 10 New York City Condo Buildings with Porte a Cocheres

There is something intangible about a driveway that adds glamour to a New York City apartment building. Perhaps it’s the fact that residents and guests don’t have to hurdle puddles in their party dresses. Perhaps it’s because the hoi polloi, and the paparazzi, can be often kept at bay, at least psychologically, from penetrating too deeply onto the driveway’s sidewalk. Whatever it is, there is a mystique and elegance that is tangible.
