After spending the winter cooped up inside, it sometimes seems as though New Yorkers will do anything to get that extra time outside. Unfortunately, few of us have apartments that offer outdoor space, relegating the majority of NYC residents to public parks. That’s all about the change, though, if the frequency with which everyone is hunting for apartments with outdoor space for under $2,500 here on Naked Apartments is any indication. Take a peek at some of the best options on the market right now and move in just in time to enjoy your new terrace/backyard/balcony during those clutch summertime months.
