The Bryant at 16 West 40th Street (Corcoran) The Bryant at 16 West 40th Street (Corcoran)
“O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?”

Despite the horrific demise of the sweet, naive young lovers, who can forget the romance of the world's most famous balcony scene? The National Association of Realtors just reported that the most searched for home feature in New York City is… a balcony!

On this Valentine’s Day, we present a roundup of amazing New York City Juliet balconies. While not always large enough for a whole love scene to play out, they do make a beautiful setting to proclaim your love and sneak in a kiss. And maybe don't follow Romeo and Juliet's example, but rather end your balcony scene with a nice dinner - all the homes are well-situated in sought-after neighborhoods with countless restaurants and eateries.
The Bryant The Bryant designed by David Chipperfield may be NYC's best new example of integrated Juliet balconies

Juliet would definitely approve of this south-facing balcony with a cool geometric design. It's easy to imagine her wearing a similar design to match as she scanned the local rooftops with her lover on her mind. And if Romeo doesn't warm her up, a built-in electric fireplace in the living room will do the job nicely. See floor plan and full details here.
