We think it's safe to say that most New Yorkers feel they've given something up to live in this city. And those of us in the 99 percent often find ourselves in apartments that leave us wanting more... sometimes much more.
On that theory, we've made a habit of asking NYC apartment dwellers to reveal the one thing they would change about their apartment if they could in our Room for Improvement series, the focus of this week's SurvivaList roundp.
Here's what renters and owners kvetch about the most. (Surprisingly, the high cost of living rarely gets a mention.)·
4. Low or no natural light: Some New Yorkers live with only two hours of sunlight a day!
5. Missing appliances: The absence of dishwashers is keenly felt.
7. Critters: Do you know you can even find caterpillars here in NYC?
10. Outdoor space: Please. Or at least a key to the roof.
For these, and more, check out Room for Improvement series.
