Most buildings in New York City loudly advertise the amenities they offer potential residents, all the better to win their attention. Whether its a garden, an exercise room, a pool, or rooftop access, it's usually there in the listing.

One featured broker was Mirador Real Estate's Racquel Popovic, who shared 15 Cliff Street's "Wine Down Wednesdays," a weekly event for residents to unwind by sipping wine and eating chocolate from a bar cart in the lobby. Other buildings listed by Mirador Real Estate were highlighted in the article, including 60 West 23rd Street, which offers "roof deck barbecues and Sunday brunches."
