NY Good Questions: What Should I Do To My Balcony?

Dear AT,

This the second summer in my apartment, and I need help!

I've been struggling over what to do with my little balcony.

It's long and narrow, 20ft long by 30" deep.

I am absolutely stumped, but need to do something...

I'd love to incorporate plants and a nice place for us to sit, but don't want to take away from the great 180 degree Manhattan views.

Any inspiration or resources would be so helpful.

Thanks! Amanda
