Unless you live in a newly built condo, you probably live in one of the thousands of pre-war (or maybe postwar) buildings in New York. And age brings its own issues to these vintage buildings – like rotting steel, or apartments that are too hot or too cold, or even leaks.
In Habitat’s June issue, we ask professionals – architects, engineers, accountants, energy specialists, and insurance agents – to tell us the problems, and sometimes the opportunities, that they are seeing in their buildings. Their stories are fascinating and sometimes sobering. Read Habitat's June issue to read more, and don't forget to check out the digital edition!
