Afzal Hussain and Julie Nymann bought a one-bedroom apartment in Jackson Heights in 2005 for $165,000 but after they had a child and decided that Julie's mother would live with them they scooped up two adjacent one bedrooms in the building for $485,000. The space looks really clean and the renovations are nice and tasteful too. In fact there really isn't much to dislike about it at all! It's a fun story about architects finding love (who doesn't enjoy that?) but if you just want to check out the apartment, head over here.
