Correcto, como una extensión del piso hacia afuera del edificio.

Los chilenos también usamos terraza por azotea. Es un terraza cuando esta habilitada para disfrutar de ella con sillas, mesas, bancos etc...Si no hay nada de eso, es una azotea.

Que también puede es un techo, pero cuando se trata de un edificio entonces pasa a ser azotea o terraza, mejor.

Thank you. It is important to remember that is how the word is used in Spain. I just love the regional differences in languages.

La terraza de mi piso sería "verandah" en inglés. No es un "deck".

I suppose you can call that space a veranda (real estate agents may call it that). but most New Yorkers call it a balcony. This, of course, is a matter of semantics.

Balcón y terraza es lo mismo en chile, como se ve en esa foto y también incluyo este enlace: http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balc%C3%B3n para que vean otros tipos de balones , terrazas y azoteas. :-)

As a rule of thumb I wouldn't call anything a balcony if it has enough room to swing a cat, but I doubt many balconies in New York do. In general I would also assume that a balcony has an overhang. AFAIC a deck has to be made of wood.

I have a terraza / verandah, and the people on the floors above me have balcones / balconies which stick out as far as the bit where you can see the awning hanging down.

I think that in English, at least American English, a veranda is a kind of wooded porch (bóveda) that wraps around a big old Victorian house. The kind of porch people would use in the summer to cool off in the evening before the advent of television and air conditioning. To me calling a veranda something other than that seems a little ironic. Certainly the term is flexible and international and its exact meaning may change from place to place.
