Thread: Sky House - 11 East 29th Street - Condo - Flatiron - by FX Fowle

    Thank you Stern.
    As you said, and as I'm finding more and more as I search online, it's extremely hard to find something under $3,000 in Manhattan unless you're looking wayy up into the Inwood areas. I have found very cheap apartments and houses in the Inwood areas.

    The hard part for me is that because I live half way across the United States from NYC, I can't go and visit these apartment buildings to see if I like them. So, instead of visiting, I have to make judgment calls on the number or quality of the pictures these landlords or sellers post.

    I'll, like you said, start looking in other areas besides Manhattan and begin looking for network connections.

    Thanks again,
    Ben

    Looks good from across the Hudson and takes attention away from it's neighbor's awful roof.

    I like the color brick they used; sometimes maroon, sometimes grey.



    But then any good will towards it disappeared once I walked further down the block





    Can anyone think of a bigger blank concrete wall than this?

    The way they have enclosed the rear of the garden with flat all-brick walls is unforgiveable.

    The least they could have doone was to break up the mass with some variety in the brick work -- nothing flashy, but just something to interest the eye. Seems such craftsmanship is beyond the capabilities of NYC developers in the 21st century (see William Beaver ) ...

    Maybe some ivy in the future will help.

    This would look just as good if the residents hung their laundry out the window ...

    Reflective glass please!

    The garden area is part of the church next door.

    Could be just a primer layer before the real paint is applied. Well, at least they're doing something.

    Looks like a prison from the east. Architect should be embarrassed.

    A friend just moved in there a couple of weeks ago, I have to say I didn't care much for it on the inside either... and it's a fairly pricey building.
