As the days get longer and the temperatures rise, New Yorkers of all stripes find themselves wanting to spend more time outside, whether entertaining friends or simply enjoying the weather with a cup of coffee or glass of wine. While the city is rich in parks and public outdoor space, this can unfortunately prove too attractive to tourists and street performers at a time when residents would prefer to relax in peace.

Some think that private balconies are a luxury reserved for the penthouse suite (and those rich enough to afford it!), but they would be advised to think again. We've found listings all over New York that come in under $1 million and come with private balconies or terraces.
