In a city where it seems that just about every free square inch is devoted to new development, all possibilities of new green space run the risk of being swallowed up by new construction. Developers and designers seek to make up for this by including roof decks and indoor/outdoor entertaining space in their new buildings, but pleasant weather has a way of attracting the entire building at a time when more private relaxation might be preferable.

However, would-be buyers don't necessarily need to surrender to the suburbs for a bit of peace and quiet. The following listings throughout New York have private gardens perfect for morning coffee, an evening nightcap, and entertaining on the buyers' own terms in between.
