Joe and Vinny own and manage an apartment complex, and want to make the courtyard more livable for their tenants. Currently, it consists of a collection of potted plants, old file cabinets, broken chairs and no space to really enjoy and entertain. They are ready to have a space that can accommodate the tenants with storage, and a common area to enjoy. Since Vinny is from New York, Jamie decides to visit the Big Apple for inspiration. An outdoor movie screen inspires a cinema area for the entire complex to enjoy. Lounges and benches he sees at the High Line Garden become pop up recliners in their new deck so they can sit back and watch movies. The High Line also inspires a stained glass art instillation in the courtyard, to help give them more privacy. While an original painting done by Vinny covers up the opposite side of their courtyard to complete the New York themed Outdoor Room.
