Gimme Those Old Time Windows

New, 14 comments

Why new development condos like those designed by Cary Tamarkin can charge so much: those old-fashioned steel casement windows. "You've got actual little panes of glass that are painstakingly put in one by one," Tamarkin says (file under: jobs we don't want). "Either you don't get it and it's meaningless to you, or you can't live without it." The Times digs up one buyer who cites the windows as her reason for buying a 3BR at 456 West 19th Street. So we guess it works? [NYT]
