One United Nations Park via The Corcoran Group One United Nations Park via The Corcoran Group
Many well-heeled New York residents left the city during the coronavirus pandemic, and some are questioning whether they want to return or not. Between many office workers continuing to do their jobs remotely and the upcoming school year's hybrid model of in-person and online learning, some city apartments are feeling smaller than before, with the result that the lines between working and relaxing look blurrier.

However, those seeking a clearer divide between home and work do not necessarily need to decamp to the suburbs. Modern developers are starting to incorporate "bonus rooms" into their apartments that can easily be transformed into home offices. Meanwhile, duplex apartments offer the potential for clear boundaries between living and working space. Private outdoor space in many of the following also offers a chance for a safe break in the fresh air.
