: I live in an a building with 4 units and a backyard in Park Slope. My landlord does not live in the building but he hangs out in the backyard all the time with his friends (not for repairs). He even throws parties back there. They are ever present all day and in the evening as well. All residents of the building supposedly have use of the backyard but no one even bothers because he is always there.
: Can a non-resident landlord use the backyard for his own enjoyment? (my lease is silent on this issue)

He owns the back yard, so he's entitled to use it. Theoretically, if he throws loud parties that interfere with your ability to use your own apartment, he has breached the warranty of habitability.

If your landlord's parties are objectionable, you should discuss it with him.
