Bright Idea: A hand sanitizer in the lobby

Share this Article

If you’ve ever eyed your elevator buttons with distrust in the height of flu season, this one’s for you:  One Upper West Side building recently installed a freestanding hand sanitizer in its lobby.

“I first saw it when we did a walk through before closing on January 12th, and the buyer who was with me—who was pregnant and a doctor—commented that this was an excellent idea,” says Warburg Realty broker Shirley Hackel, who tipped us off to the innovation.

It’s inexpensive too:  A quick Google search turned up lots of options in the $75-$200 range.
