Joel Hinman has lived at the corner of Bleecker and Broadway for 35 years — his 2,500 square foot apartment has amazing 8-foot wide arched windows that overlook the busy NoHo intersection. The New York Times takes us inside the home that Joel shares with his wife Kari Thorstensen and their year-old son.
The neighborhood (and apartment) has changed immensely. When Joel moved-in in with a friend in 1975, the rent for the then-illegal space was $500. Today it's $1,291 a month — still an amazing deal.
Read about Joel's 35 years in NoHo and the transitions the neighborhood and apartment have gone through in The New York Times | The Domestication of a Dive and the accompanying slide show: From Bachelor Pad to Family Dwelling.
