Features

Technically speaking, the penthouse is the apartment on a building’s highest floor, which naturally provides the best views. More often than not, it also provides the highest ceilings, most luxurious finishes and appliances, and greatest likelihood of having private outdoor space in the building. These highly coveted units confer great prestige, which often leads to higher price points, but luxury buyers do not seem to object.

As the days get longer and warmer, New York’s parks, rooftop bars, and outdoor restaurants are likely to get more crowded. At a time when New York's Covid alert level is rising from low to medium, this may make some skittish about spending time outside even on the most beautiful day (like today). We take a look at penthouses with private terraces to enjoy the longer, warmer days in peace.
