Watch The Trees Change This Season At These Top Residential Locations

Fall’s ambience has officially set upon New York signaled by the crisp breeze, cozy scarves and the breathtaking views of the trees changing into a gorgeous array of colors. For many New Yorkers, going upstate for leaf-peeping is an obvious choice, but the city itself can offer some of the best views this season. With residential buildings that offer notable outdoor spaces, from rooftops to terraces, residents don’t have to go very far to take in the unique views of the city’s stunning changing treetops.

1. Circa Central Park

Circa Central Park, a condominium in Upper Manhattan, brought renowned architecture firm FXFOWLE on board to design the curved façade. The design offers exquisite floor-to-ceiling panoramic views of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline—allowing potential buyers to become one with nature. Situated right on the north end, the development will portray a biophilic design with a series of balconies that overlook the entire greenery of the park, experiencing the magic of change each season. This unique circular construction offers the “wow factor” to future residents allowing them to see the whole expanse of the park in one view, with a different light and shape of the sun each time they look. (Photo credit: Seventh Art)

2. Parkside Brooklyn

Parkside Brooklyn, a luxury rental property in Prospect Park South, overlooks Brooklyn’s largest public park, Prospect Park. The second phase of the residential project, which is being developed by Clipper Equity and The Chetrit Group, recently launched and features a landscaped rooftop deck that offers residents prime views of the 585-acre adjacent park, just in time for foliage season. Select units at Parkside also feature views of the park and its changing landscape. (Photo credit: Hudi Greenberger)

Waverly Brooklyn, a seven-story condominium in Clinton Hill/Fort Greene is in close proximity to some of Brooklyn’s most-cherished green spaces including Fort Greene Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and Prospect Park, and just a few blocks away is the new eight-acre Pacific Park (currently in construction). Waverly’s residents can take in the fall scenery on the furnished rooftop garden with classic Manhattan views. (Photo credit: Millarc)

7 DeKalb Avenue, a 23-story tower in Downtown Brooklyn, is less than a ten minute walk from Fort Greene Park. The park’s notable ginkgo, sugar maple and black pine trees are visible from the building’s 18th-floor terrace, which offers residents the perfect refuge for scoping out the changing foliage this season.
