When 2020 began, many were excited about the possibility of a new “Roaring 20s” taking hold once the COVID-19 storm passes. The historic era only lasted from 1920 to 1929 but has had tremendous staying power in terms of social movements, fashion, technology, and architecture (this was when Art Deco design came to prominence in the United States).

It remains to be seen what similarities and differences the unfolding decade will offer, but already in 2020 the New York's prospects have grown brighter as the city has already vaccinated more than 3 million individuals, the newly-passed COVID-19 relief bill gives $6.1 billion in aid directly to the city, and on the economic front, Google just announced they will bring an additional 3,000 jobs to their Hudson Square campus, new indices show the city has expanded its lead as the financial capital of the world and the place that is most attractive to ultra-high-net-worth (UHNW) individuals.

New York City is also set to gain a new mayor in 2021 (praise be). For the primary and mayoral elections, voters have a selection of several seemingly-competent candidates to choose from through a new rank-choice voting system. Promising new initiatives such as the outdoor dining and open streets programs and new pushes to shore up our ailing mass transportation systems also point to rosier days ahead.

With boom-times forecasted, we bring you homes that would seem well-designed for spending the 2020s in style. Scroll below to see our compilation of new-to-market quintessentially New York listings possessing incredible character and charm.
