A Yard in the Sky: New York Times on the Terrace as a Must-Have New Condo Amenity

From the beginning of the last NYC condominium boom up to today, Manhattan condos have been locked in a strange and occasionally silly sort of arms race.New York City Luxury Condos Upper East Side with Terace It's not one that puts anybody's lives at risk, thankfully -- this sort of arms race pertains mainly to amenities, and which condominium can have the biggest and best extras to go along with those condos for sale.

Which brings us to 20 Pine, which is unique among condo listings in the Financial District not just for being an especially artful renovated luxury condo, but for having a luxury that many New Yorkers will wish they had on snowy mornings to come -- private subway access.
