This week readers were interested in Brick Underground’s interview with a renter who made a move just a few blocks north to get a lot more space—a penthouse in East Harlem, to be specific. She was delighted to land place with French doors, high ceilings, and a roomy balcony. Check out what else she likes about her new home and her new neighborhood.
Also of interest: There’s a new effort to make co-op board rejections more transparent. Read about New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams’ proposed legislation that would require co-op boards to explain to rejected buyers in writing why they are being turned down.
