Typically at this time of year, most New Yorkers would be more than happy to hunker down in their homes against the cold weather. However, this year finds us coming into winter after months of staying in and when typical activities have been cancelled or postponed to keep the coronavirus pandemic at bay. The city has come up with some creative options for beating the winter blues, but The New York Times points out that these offerings are neither equally distributed nor within some residents' budgets.

At a time like this, private outdoor space is especially welcome. Rather than have to join the crowds and navigate social distancing, fortunate residents can step onto the balcony for a breath of fresh air and a respite from the office/schoolroom/gym that their apartment might have suddenly become over the past few months.

As of this writing, there is more promising news of the vaccine front seemingly every day, and the days are getting steadily longer. But bear in mind that by the time outdoor temperatures start to thaw, there's a chance the market will have started to as well. Below, see a selection of Manhattan listings that allow buyers to get both a good deal and a private balcony.
