New Yorkers sure know how to get creative when it comes to small spaces. Those small spaces are usually inside, though, and not on the roof of unassuming apartment buildings.

Gothamist recently reminded us of this charming 350 square-foot cabin atop a Greenwich Street building, which was covered in the New York Times (and we wrote about here).

So how does it work? "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 [up to the roof]," writes the Times.

Gothamist also recently wrote about an East Village penthouse for sale that comes with a rooftop cottage.
