Rundown of The Best New Duplex Listings in NYC Rundown of The Best New Duplex Listings in NYC
New York City apartment living can be nearly perfect: Elevators, doormen, delivery services, having someone else deal with the lawn and the garbage – even having everything you need on one floor. But sometimes it's great to be able to head upstairs to bed – or downstairs to breakfast (or vice versa). That's where a duplex apartment comes in.

In much of the United States, the term "duplex" refers to two separate apartments in the same structure. But in New York City, it means a single unit with two floors connected by one staircase. Extra space and privacy are always appreciated in a city where both are at a premium, and that is especially the case at a time when couples and families have been trying to work and live in the same apartment for months. Even those living solo can find it stressful to step out of bed and right into work, and a typical duplex floor plan allows buyers to have the living room on one level and bedroom(s) on another.

These on-the-market duplexes might just double the fun of apartment life while giving you the privacy you need while working/learning from home. The layouts offer a townhouse-like atmosphere in a multi-family building, and some come with such coveted features as airy ceilings and private outdoor space.
