  • Cast Iron or Cast Out? Expanding the Tribeca Historic District By Peter Black | August 27, 2013

    The Tribeca landmarking debate has been raging for over two decades. Preservationists and conservationists want to preserve and conserve Tribeca’s uniqueness.

In 1988, the New York City Landmark Preservation Committee separated Tribeca into four adjacent—but distinct—historic districts. These areas have been protected by landmarking regulation ever since.

  • Just How Old Are Most New Yorker's Buildings? By Ryan Daley | January 16, 2013

    Anyone can tell you New York City's housing stock is a mix of new and old, but while headlines of new apartment buildings on the rise grab the attention of the public, the chart above shows nearly 60% of occupied units in the city were built before 1947.

  • Jaguars and Wolves as Pets? Only in New York By Aby Thomas | October 26, 2012

    New Yorkers love their pets, and they leave no stone unturned to make sure that their furry and/or feathery friends are given luxury lifestyles that mirror their own. A spa for your shit-tzu, day care for your cockatiel, an exercise regimen for your Siamese—these are just a few of the many facilities available for animals in the city, and many luxury apartment buildings in Manhattan have started to host their own pet-friendly amenities as well. Having said that, there are times when the best of facilities aren’t enough for the pets people keep in their homes—simply because these aren’t the usual  animals that you’d expect to see in a luxury apartment.

  • Window Washers Now in High Demand By Andrea Garcia-Vargas | July 23, 2012

    Glass buildings have surged in Manhattan over the past few years. And, consequently, so have window washers. The two trends go directly hand-in-hand. In the former age of brick and limestone, window washing was a no-brainer—a building’s superintendent could even take it on him or herself to spray a bit of Windex on the inside of windows and wipe it clean. Masonry, for example, can be washed as infrequently as once every 40 years. But now, with the increase in buildings that use reflective surfaces which need to be cleaned every two years, people who do window washing for a living are in high demand—the washing needs to be done on the outside for maximum reflectiveness, and if it’s a high-rise building in sore need of a spring cleaning, window washers are the only ones who can master the heights.
