Amenity fireplaces have become more common in NYC new developments Amenity fireplaces have become more common in NYC new developments
After more than 700 days, New York’s “snow drought” has come to an end with a 1.7-inch snowfall. It turned to rain as the afternoon went on, but more snow is possible for Friday. Whether or not this comes to pass, city residents are facing low temperatures in the teens and highs hovering around the freezing point with a thaw not expected until early next week.

While the severe weather alert that came with Tuesday’s snowfall has been lifted, icy patches on sidewalks and icy winds nevertheless make going out an unpleasant experience on days like these. But some lucky residents can 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 the constant eye on them that they would a fireplace in their own home. Moreover, the fireplaces are often at the center of common spaces with libraries, game tables, or big-screen TVs, to name but a few amusements.
