Yes, Brooklyn and, to a lesser extent, Queens, is seeing a glut of new rental buildings, leading to a softening in the market. But renters aren't the only ones gaining access to a new crop of options—buyers are, too. There are multi-tower complexes and intimate boutique buildings making their debut, and regardless of building size, amenities abound in these new offerings. More often than not, they include drool-worthy outdoor spaces (seven acre landscaped terrace or al fresco dining facilities, anyone?) and a ton of wellness options like pools and gyms. And of course, something only buildings in these outer boroughs can offer: gorgeous views of the Manhattan skyline.
