This weeks, readers were intrigued by the relationships New Yorkers have with their apartments or houses, and how that relationship changes over time, with stories about a Windsor Terrace rowhouse where the quirks have become full-blown annoyances, and an Upper East Side luxury studio, where a broken AC and other tribulations do not make the place feel very luxe.

Here, in full, are the top five most-read stories of the last week:

1) My love-hate relationship with the Windsor Terrace house I fell head-over-heels for 17 years ago

2) How to break a lease in NYC

3) Five years later, my UES rent-stabilized luxury studio is still a 'hot' deal—especially when the AC is out

4) How to sell your NYC apartment ‘as is’

5) What to know if you're looking to live in West Harlem/Manhattanville
