Comment of the Day

"Pity it still has the top floor devoted to servants, despite the installation of an elevator and, presumably, central air conditioning. (Stairs and heat were the two original motivations for reserving the top floors for servants.) Could use a good renovation to make the top floor a gigantic master suite or something suitably grand. (Maybe put the servants, probably just a maid, a butler and a cook these days, in those smaller rooms at the back of the 5th Floor.)"?anon [Fifth Avenue Townhouse Sets 2012 Record With $42M Sale]
