Hidden-away homes on New York City rooftops

March 13, 2010

Often charming yet sometimes hideous, these high-up houses built above the tree line on top of tenements, walkups, and lofts make up a secret city of their own.

I’ve always gotten a kick out of this pink box of a home overlooking Eighth Avenue in Chelsea, with its sliding doors and table and chairs.

This cute two-story number is on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn. I’m sure the view is fab, but even better, it sits on top of the old Ex-Lax factory building, now a residence. 

Perched precariously on a Delancey Street tenement is this McMansion-esque three-story house. No, it’s not exactly hidden. But it is quite a sight. Who? Why?
