The summer solstice fell on June 21, 2022 this year, making it the official start to summer and bringing more daylight to New York. Some mark the occasion with spiritual rituals or a yoga practice (this year marks the 20th anniversary of Solstice in Times Square), while others mark the day with an outdoor meal or drink. Either way, it is literally a brighter day as the longest day of the year.
New Yorkers all over the city will enjoy more daylight today, but these apartments and townhouses allow their owners to make the most of it. Skylights fill the interiors with natural light, and outdoor space allows for seamless indoor/outdoor entertaining. Among them is Emmy Award-winning comedian/actress/writer Amy Schumer’s Upper West Side apartment, which features a solarium-like living room, wraparound terraces, and a private rooftop garden.

“I walked in and looked at the views and sunlight and couldn’t have made an offer fast enough” — Amy Schumer on her Upper West Side apartment
