We're kind of in love with architectural historian Christopher Gray's retelling of how he found out who first occupied his former apartment in the UWS's Cornwall: "As earnest young gentrifiers, we helped take the 1910 building co-op in 1981. That was also the year we moved from 3A to 11A, a four-bedroom apartment with a paneled dining room, an onyx fireplace, stained glass, a wall safe, figured tile in a bathroom — all the accouterments of top-of-the-middle-line apartment living of 1910."
