NYC Real(i)ty Speak: Maid's room = Closet with a t.v.
By Veronica X. |June 17, 2010 - 11:04AM
One person's trash is another's treasure - or is it?
Maid's room = Closet with a television that beloved nanny shares with sporting equipment
Open concept = The present owners bought in 2007 and couldn't afford to furnish the place
Decorator's dream home = Hodgepodge of different materials leftover from multiple low-end decorating jobs
Gym and pool in the building = Broken treadmills and chlorinated bathtub in basement
Can easily be used as a bedroom = Hope you don't mind if your kid sleeps in a room with French doors off the kitchen
