Location: Upper West Side — Manhattan, New York
My husband and I wanted to rent a pied a terre in the city. We used brokers to seek out "gems" but never were too thrilled with what we saw. So we decided to seek out new buildings on the upper sides of Manhattan so that we did not have to pay the broker fees. We ended up in a brand new building with views of the Hudson.
Much of the furniture was brought from our Connecticut home with the exception of the bed and the couch. Some of smaller photos on the walls were downloaded off the internet, printed out on paper and framed. And we actually thought it looked bigger with furniture in it!
We love our place and it is the perfect size for our needs.
