While it’s true that a foyer isn’t likely at the top of the average person’s dream apartment wish list, if ever you’ve lived in a New York City home in which the front door opened directly into the living room or kitchen, you know that a proper entry (with a closet or two and, perhaps, a place to toss the keys and mail) is not an apartment feature that can be underestimated.
