Blogging New York Magazine: Revolting Development

May 30, 2007

Cutting Corners. Yikes! With this week's news that more New Yorkers own their homes, New York Magazine looks at the bursting pipes, bad ventilation, leaky roofs, thin insulation, insufficient fireproofing, buzzing electrical outlets, endless construction and in some of the city's new construction. The tales in Revolting Development make us nervous...

Imagine...

• Losing your home's temporary certificate of occupancy, in part because the building is four stories taller than is legal.

• Having the floors in a new home replaced twice in three years.

A must read for all! Buyers beware and be careful!
