In this Williamsburg rental, a giant terrace takes center stage

It's a truism about Brooklyn apartments that the best feature is often their prime views of Manhattan. And this luxury Williamsburg two-bedroom asking $6,995/month takes skyline-centric design to a whole other level, with a 750-square-foot wraparound terrace that's almost as big as the actual apartment:

For better or worse, the building is located right in the heart of Williamsburg, on 9th and Bedford (meaning expect to play dodge-the-crowds if you step out to grab something at the deli pretty much any hour of the day). For your $7,000/month rent, you can also expect perks like a garage, doorman, gym, and "Taschen art library" on-site.

The views from inside aren't shabby either, with wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room and kitchen area. The master bedroom also opens right out onto the terrace:

What do you think—worth it for the brag-worthy views (and the guarantee that if you live here, your friends will make your place their go-to hangout, meaning you never have to leave)? Or is it just too expensive, given that the primary amenity—the outdoor spac—-won't exactly be appealing once winter really sets in?
