Corner residences are among the most popular types of apartments in the country. Since the exterior layout of these apartments is usually L-shaped, one of the biggest advantages of living there is the views that they offer. Moreover, such layout makes a living space well-ventilated. Corner units are constructed in one of the sides of a building structure so they usually cover more area than other types of apartments in a building. Needless to say that they are usually the first to sell in a new construction project, but every so often a rare corner listing comes available that buyers can pounce on.
Take a look at five move-in-ready corner residences that are currently on the market in New York.
