This two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath apartment has its own private penthouse roof cabana. The cabana features a full kitchen and is professionally landscaped with irrigation.

When you’re forced to spend your time inside, this Chelsea apartment features a full wall of casement windows, including in the master suite, and wire brushed solid oak floors.
