There are many places in the US where someone could live in a cabin with front yard and a view for miles, but that place is not in New York City.
Or maybe it is.
An aerial photograph by George Steinmetz reveals just a such a cabin on the roof of an apartment building in New York's West Village neighborhood, complete with a front porch and a yard. See the video below for more on the cabin.
The photos were featured in Gothamist on Tuesday and the New York Times previously reported that the rooftop is owned by David Puchkoff and Eileen Stukane. When the Times visited the rooftop abode, it reported that "the porch is basically a glorified bulkhead over a hole punched in the ceiling of the family’s loft to make way for a nautical stairway that rises to a landing with a galley-like kitchenette, with two paned windows and a door that opens to the roof..."
Mr Steinmetz has taken several other aerial photos of New York. See them below.
