It's summer in the city and with that comes sweaty commutes, hot sidewalks crowded with tourists and regular New Yorkers just trying to get things done and the dream of weekends spent by the water. But you don't have to wait for the weekend to be near the beach--waterfront living is possible year-round in New York City.

We looked at what it's like to live in Breezy Point, a tight-knit enclave in Queens, earlier this week. And while there aren't any open houses there this weekend, here are a handful of other promising properties for water lovers to check out.
