A Winter Day Indoors at 98 Front

Even during the depths of winter, when the sun only occasionally makes a brief, weak appearance before disappearing again, Brooklyn has its charms. There are warming drinks in candlelit bars, exciting performances in clubs and theaters, and snowy strolls down picturesque streets. But when the temperature drops below a certain point, even the most idyllic scenes are not enough to draw some people from the warmth of their comforters, much less from their Dumbo condos. When you live at 98 Front, the new condos in Brooklyn NY for sale, you don’t have to leave home to have a full day. The building’s extravagant amenities mean that you can work, exercise, relax, and play — all without facing the frigid winter air.

There’s one amenity you’ll enjoy whenever you’re coming or going: the lobby. When entering the building, residents of 98 Front are met with a welcome contrast to the bustling energy of the snowy streets. Ultra-high ceilings, warm millwork, and walls that bend to create subtle visual interest combine in a design that leaves a deep impression of calm. Beyond the lobby, a reflective pool glimmers, framed by towering windows — a meditative place to watch the snow descend softly on the water’s surface.

Summer beach days may be out of reach, but in the Dumbo condos at 98 Front, the healing properties of saltwater are not. The fitness center has all of the airy studio space and state-of-the-art workout equipment you need to get your heart rate up, but it also includes a saltwater pool, spa, and steam room. The benefits of a saltwater swim are well documented, from soothing dull, dry winter skin to supporting the immune system. Skip the freezing commute to the gym and stop fantasizing about a summer ocean plunge — everything you need is right here.

After a workout, swim, or perhaps a warming session in the steam room, head to the residents’ lounge for a cup of something hot. The sun-drenched lounge is an inviting space with oversized windows, comfy couches, and plenty of tables — it may even rival the atmosphere of your favorite coffee shop. Should your caffeinated beverage have you feeling industrious, the residents’ lounge also functions as a workspace. Whether you’re snowed in and unable to get to the office, or you just want to spend some time chipping away at a personal project, the residents’ lounge provides a comfortable, useful space where you can focus or relax.

Winter can be especially hard on the little ones (and their parents), since cold weather often prevents children from going outside to burn off all their extra energy. Finding ways to keep children entertained for an entire day indoors can be tricky. Luckily for the kids at 98 Front, a bright, airy, and whimsical playroom awaits, full of toys and activities that encourage imaginative, interactive play. Kids can “cook” their favorite meal in the toy kitchen, do a little crafting or coloring at the child-size tables, or join with new friends to create games of their own.

Before you know it, the warm weather will return, and you can take advantage of the outdoor amenities at the Dumbo condominiums, as well. For now, 98 Front has enough to keep you busy, warm, and satisfied until the snow is gone.
