One of two amenity fireplaces at Rose Hill (Core Group NYC) One of two amenity fireplaces at Rose Hill (Core Group NYC)
New York City's forecast for the first weekend of February 2023 has been described as "dangerously cold," with temperatures predicted to fall into single digits on Friday night and feel even colder because of the wind chill. Because of this, residents are advised to limit their time outside and stay safe where heating is concerned (e.g., use caution with space heaters).

When going out cannot be avoided, New Yorkers are advised to dress in layers and cover every part of their bodies. But some lucky residents have a chance to enjoy a change of scenery without even putting on their coats. The fireplaces in these buildings' amenity spaces offer a lovely sense of ambiance without residents having to keep a constant eye on them. Moreover, the fireplaces are at the center of lounges with libraries, game tables, or big-screen TVs, to name but a few amusements.

450-Washington-Street-01 Residents' lounge (Colin Miller)
Amidst 450 Washington Street's conversion from rental to sales units, the apartments and amenities underwent an extensive overhaul to bring them up to Related condo caliber. These amenities included a spacious lounge with a fireplace, comfortable furniture, and private dining room with adjacent catering pantry.

515-West-18th-Street-01 Lounge (Related)
Between its High Line-adjacent address, secret garden, and roof deck with skyline views, there is much to recommend about Lantern House's outdoor offerings. But between the pool, sauna and spa, and library with fireplace, it's clear that equal attention was given to the indoor amenities.

555-West-22nd-Street-01 The Cortland (Core Group NYC)
Construction equipment is being cleared away at The Cortland, the Robert A.M. Stern-Olson Kundig-designed building with an abundance of fireplaces: Select primary suites have marble fireplaces; the lobby is anchored by an Olson Kundig-designed kinetic wheel-operated fireplace; and the centerpiece of an upper-level event lounge is a bronze metal fireplace.

215-West-28th-Street-01 Library lounge (Douglas Elliman)
For some, this weekend is the time to curl up under a blanket with a good book. There is no better place for that than Maverick Chelsea's lounge - it features floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and comfortable furniture around the fireplace.

30-East-29th-Street-01 Library lounge (Core Group NYC)
At Rose Hill, Rockefeller Group's first residential building, the amenity suite includes fireplaces at both ends: Just off the double-height lobby, a fireplace is the centerpiece of the jewel-box Blue Room lounge. Thirty-seven stories up, the Library Lounge features a fireplace, billiards table, and 360-degree skyline views.

15-East-30th-Street-01 Lounge entrance (Nicole Franzen)
At Madison House, the hotel-caliber amenities designed by Gachot Studios start several stories above grade so as to make the most of sweeping views of Manhattan. These include a club lounge with double-height ceilings, a fireplace, and a wood-paneled wet bar.

53-West-53rd-Street-01 Library (Evan Joseph)
At the Jean Nouvel-designed 53 W 53, social amenities offer the atmosphere of a private club. They include a library lounge with a fireplace, contemporary art, and beautiful shelves and furnishings.

1059-Third-Avenue-01 The Brandy Room (Brown Harris Stevens)
On the full 24th floor of The Leyton, the Brandy Room is distinguished by its outdoor terrace and 270-degree views of the Manhattan skylines. But with game tables and stylish furniture surrounding an eye-catching fireplace, the indoor Living Room is not to be overlooked.

543-West-122nd-Street-01 Salon (Brown Harris Stevens)
Up the street from Vandewater, Claremont Hall has dethroned it as the tallest building in Morningside Heights. However, Vandewater's 24,000 square feet of amenities have not yet been overshadowed in the area. They include a salon with white oak paneling, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a fireplace.

11-Hoyt-Street-01 Lounge (The Corcoran Group)
At the top of the Studio Gang-designed 11 Hoyt, the 32nd-story Sky Club offers a range of leisure amenities overlooking panoramic views of Manhattan and Brooklyn. The piece de resistance is the Sky Lounge with double-height ceilings, a fireplace and wet bar.

138-Willoughby-Street-01 Park Lounge (Serhant LLC)
The condos of Brooklyn Point are an elevator ride away from a McNally Jackson output, and the Center for Fiction is a short walk away. At Brooklyn Point, there's no better place to enjoy one's new book is the Park Lounge with triple-height ceilings, a glass fireplace, an installation of hanging globes, and access to the ninth-floor terrace.

58-Saint-Marks-Place-01 Club Room (Caukus Consulting LLC)
At Saint Marks Place, a rapidly selling new condo at the nexus of four popular Brooklyn neighborhoods, the amenities are divided into four distinct areas. At the center of The Club (the most socially oriented amenities) is a club room with fireplace and wet bar.
