It’s no secret that New Yorkers long for private outdoor space. Especially during the pandemic. But this luxury isn’t just reserved for garden apartments and townhouses. Renters can have their own piece of NYC outdoor space in the form of a balcony. Spend the summer outside in the fresh air, without leaving the comfort of home! Here are 5 great NYC apartments with balconies available to rent right now.
Our first NYC apartment with a balcony is this lovely Long Island City 1-bedroom. It’s set in a full-service building with a doorman, a gym, and more. The unit is airy and bright, with oversized windows and an open floor plan. A peninsula in the kitchen serves as a great breakfast bar and food prep station. The balcony off the living room is pretty spacious. And there’s also a shared rooftop deck with an outdoor kitchen! Listed by Thomas Kalajian of Corcoran.
Not many NYC apartments with balconies have this unique feature: double access. This private outdoor space is accessible via both the bedroom and the living room! It’s also southern facing for maximum sunlight (your houseplants will love it). Inside the unit you’ll find two more features New Yorkers covet. A washer/dryer is set right next to an alcove that would make a perfect home office. The bathroom and kitchen (with dishwasher!) are meticulously updated as well.

Gorgeous kitchen alert! We’re talking granite countertops, tons of storage space, and high-end appliances. There’s a washer/dryer hidden behind that custom cabinetry, too. And both bedrooms are king-sized! But there’s more to love about this NYC apartment with a balcony. If you crave even more outdoor space, Prospect Park is just a few blocks away.

In the Heights! This luxe 2BR has floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the Hudson River. And the balcony has plenty of space to enjoy morning coffee or evening cocktails. Inside, a breakfast bar in the open-concept kitchen creates more opportunities for seating. There’s in-unit laundry and central air, too. Plus, the building has amenities galore, including a gym and a gorgeous roof deck. Listed by Raymond Werdane of Bohemia Realty Group.

The last of our NYC apartments with balconies is certainly not least. In fact, it’s the biggest, with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Dark hardwood floors and oversized windows provide a chic, updated feel. Add sleek, monochromatic bathrooms and we’re talking serious luxury. In addition to the unit’s private balcony, the building also offers a common roof deck. There’s a laundry room and gym too. Listed by Yair Tavivian of Douglas Elliman.
