Are you looking for an apartment to rent in New York City with room to work from home? You might want to focus your search on buildings with work-from-home amenities. The advantage here is you don’t have to pay for a bigger apartment to get space for a home office.

And you get the best of both worlds: You don’t have to leave the building to work but you do get to work outside of your personal space. 

You’re likely to find these in new luxury buildings, which have a variety of work-from-home amenities like conference rooms, work pods where you can socially distance, and co-working spaces with perks like coffee bars, iMacs, and work stations. 

And since these apartments are in amenity-laden buildings, you will get other perks like fitness centers, media rooms, landscaped roof decks, and storage.

So if you’re looking for an apartment in a building that fits your work-from-home needs, check out these five rentals in Bushwick, Long Island City, Downtown Brooklyn, Hell’s Kitchen, and Two Bridges.
