Architect Breaks Down 5 of the Most Common New York Apartments
This video from Architectural Digest has so many fun details. For example, when brownstones were first conceived and built, city planners didn’t have to think about where to store the garbage mainly because people didn’t used to have a lot of garbage or create a lot of waste (hence, no alleyways behind buildings)! Yeeeeesh, I really need to start doing that compost thing. I also had no idea stoop was Dutch for staircase!
How many of these types of apartments have you lived in?
Michael Wyetzner of Michielli + Wyetzner Architects returns to AD, this time breaking down five of the most common apartment types found in New York City. From long and narrow railroad-style abodes to stately multi-level brownstones and everything in between, Michael gives expert insight on the many different places you can call home in the big apple.
