Few here in DC for better or worse. I've never seen the use of a balcony for the most part, every apartment that I've had that has one has either been utilized as a smoking section for visitors or a place to put plants and a bicycle, that's about it.
See that's the difference in DC and most of the country.
I like being outside.
It feels nice to be out int the air, not trapped in a rabbit hutch.
