A three-bedroom, two-bath condo at 301 West 53rd Street (yours for $1.78 million) gives you access to the building’s impressive suite of outdoor amenities, including a space that can be used for al fresco fitness classes and a private dog park so Fido can get his own exercise without ever leaving home.

Summer may be winding down but that doesn't mean you shouldn’t be squeezing every last bit of warm weather fun you can from the season. For that, you need a building that takes its outdoor amenities seriously. The following all fit the bill.

The 4,950-square-foot, fifth-floor terrace at 388 Bridge Street in downtown Brooklyn offers a barbecue grilling deck, a separate children’s play area, and a summer movie series, complete with fresh popped popcorn machine, of course. A four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath duplex is on the market for $2.995 million.

For those with a green thumb, a two-bedroom, one-bath rental at 10 City Point in downtown Brooklyn (priced at $4,324/month) gains your entry to an 18th-floor green terrace with a planted lawn and a resident gardening area that can be used for growing veggies and herbs.

At 1 North 4th Place in Williamsburg, residents can take advantage of movie screenings on its sun deck, not to mention an outdoor barbecue area and an outdoor pool, too.  A three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath there ($7,700/month) comes with southern exposure, city views, and its own washer and dryer.

For truly creative outdoor amenities, it seems a move to Brooklyn is a must. To wit, a rent-stabilized, no-fee two bedroom, two-bath home at 7 DeKalb (listed at $5,057/month) includes a 6,000-square-foot public terrace with planting and vegetable gardens, lawn space, and bar counter.
