New York's Cooperative and Condominium Community

Habitat Magazine Insider Guide



Mandy Braun remembers the winter months both outside and inside her apartment. "Our windows were 30 years old and we had cold drafts coming in," says Braun, vice president of Cabrini Terrace, a 16-story post-war cooperative at 900 West 190th Street in the Hudson Heights section of Manhattan. "We were doing Local Law 11 work and could see erosion around some windows. For environmental reasons — heat and conservation — we knew it was time to replace them."

Braun is not alone. With contractors arranging their spring jobs now, many co-ops and condos are planning the "second phase" of window replacement. Three decades ago, many newly converted buildings took the plunge and replaced their windows.
