Town Houses, Town Homes
Many New York parents want their children to grow up in a “real home” instead of in a cramped apartment. They want four or more bedrooms, several levels, stairways, fireplaces, numerous bathrooms, and real backyards.
Townhouses are the best way to make this dream a reality without leaving Manhattan. Even the most expensive condos in the city can’t offer growing children a backyard with a tire swing, or banisters to slide down. However, even relatively affordable townhouses offer these important childhood “amenities.”
Single people and couples can benefit from living on more than one level as well. Townhouse dwellers agree that there is something psychologically healthy about going downstairs to your kitchen for breakfast, or, after an evening reading by the fireside, climbing upstairs to bed.
