The Eugene's roof deck (Max Touhey) The Eugene's roof deck (Max Touhey)
We are approaching the peak of grilling season and outdoor , but New York apartment-dwellers need not feel left out nor angle for an invitation to a suburban home. Certain public parks have designated barbecue areas, but a growing number of rental buildings have made outdoor terraces with barbecue grills part of their amenity packages.

Roof decks and outdoor terraces have always enjoyed some of the most impressive views in the building, but have experienced new appreciation after the social distancing requirements and safety regulations introduced with the coronavirus pandemic. The demand for outdoor space in residential buildings has only grown. New buildings with roof decks are underway, and we take a look at Manhattan's best rooftop terraces on the market.
