While staying safe at home to help control the spread of COVID-19, you might be running out of things to do. Thankfully, there are many fun ways to keep boredom at bay while you chill in your apartment at The Vitagraph. To help you get started, here’s a look at several awesome ideas.

Break Out the Games

Solo board games are on the rise with many new ones hitting the market all the time. The most popular ones are:

  • Scythe
  • Terraforming Mars
  • Tiny Epic Galaxies
  • Massive Darkness
  • Onirim
  • Mage Knight

In case you’re in need of a little social interaction, however, then online games might work best. If you only have your phone, then give Words with Friends or Clash of Clans a try. With a computer, you have many more options. You can sign up for a subscription to World of Warcraft or try free Steam games, like Star Trek Online.

Learn Something New

Learning new skills is a cinch with experts sharing tutorials through many different video platforms, such as YouTube and Vimeo. All you have to do is decide what you want to learn, then search for a tutorial for beginners.

Skills you could learn include:

  • Play the guitar or other instrument
  • Code an app or game
  • Type as fast as lightning
  • Photograph the world
  • Complete creative pet grooming
  • Create a chatbot
  • Build a monthly budget

The sky is the limit in what you can learn if you just set your mind to it, are willing to invest the time to practice, and watch a few helpful videos. You can also use apps to build your skillset. You could download Duolingo to learn a new language or use Headspace to master meditation.

Cook Every Dish Imaginable

With ample recipe websites at your fingertips, there is no limit to how many dishes you can cook up at your New York apartments. Check out Tasty, Allrecipes, and Epicurious, for starters, to see what fits your fancy. As long as you have the ingredients, or inventive substitutes, you can treat yourself to home cooked meals and delicious desserts galore.

If your efforts fall flat, never fear. You can simply count on Grubhub or Uber Eats to deliver food from local restaurants, including:

You will not only get a hot meal delivered fresh to your door but also support your favorite eateries as they cope with the current challenges.

Stream Your Heart Out

If nothing else sounds fun, then take this time to stream all your favorite shows and movies guilt-free. You can use Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+, for example, for hours upon hours of entertainment.

Just in the Netflix library, you can find everything from classic TV shows, like Mystery Science Theater, to original movies, such as The Willoughby’s. Beyond their timeless classics, Disney+ also has many unforgettable offerings, including The Mandalorian and Onward.

As you hunker down away from city living for a short while, it will become clear that The Vitagraph apartments are a great place to wait it all out. Before you know it, stay-at-home requirements will lift, allowing you to meet up with neighbors on the rooftop courtyard once again.

Private Balconies and Terraces

One of the first things we sought to develop is a clear pathway to an open space for all our residents. With this in mind, we developed private balconies and outdoor spaces where tenants can relax in their luxury Brooklyn apartment and take in city-scape views.

Open Designs

These luxury midwood apartments offer inspirational thoughtful layouts. The end result is a sense of airiness that is almost completely foreign in Midwood. Our designs cater to your sense of space and freeness. One such way we achieved this is with our oversized layouts – Enter the lost art of a foyer into a true chef’s kitchen that seamlessly feeds into a generous living/dining area. Unrivaled in space and detail, this Midwood luxury apartment nurtures the importance of making your space a home. It is a massive, and innovative, departure from the cramped and closed-off rentals of other locations.

High-End Interior Design

Our interior design makes no shortcuts. We prioritized making all our Midwood luxury apartments authentically- modern and fresh. This means high-end finishes, simple color palettes, and more. There’s no busyness in the design and nothing is unintentional. It is a stark difference from many rentals where the designers are left struggling to work with what’s there. Overall, the non-kitschy design and high-end quality provides a sunnier atmosphere for you and any of your guests.

Natural Light

Light is so paramount to good home design. It’s not enough to add a few convenient windows. You have to encourage light to travel and design the space in a way that maximizes natural light flow. With warm colors, bright drapes, and more, we encourage the light to burst in the space. Natural and light hardwood floors provide a nice glow from below and the large welcome light from virtually every angle.
