We do it. We've caught lots of other people doing it. We're talking about gawking in the windows of other people's apartments as we pass by on the sidewalk. If you do it, too, you might check out NYC Inside. The premise is kind of like an entire website of AT House Tours (but - call us biased - not nearly as cool!).
The website is just getting off the ground, so there aren't bottomless archives of apartments on it. But it's still fun to peek into others' places and their likes/dislikes of aspects of their homes. And we imagine that the site can only get better as it grows.
Each apartment post shares photos alongside the stats of monthly rent, location, and size.
From NYC Inside: Ever walk by a ground floor apartment and take a peek? Or slow down as you pass a brownstone and stare inside? Welcome to nycinside.com, the only place on the web where you get to do what all New Yorkers love most, compare apartments.
Here you'll get an inside look at every kind of NYC apartment in every area of New York City. Find out how people decorate their duplexes or layout their lofts; see where people sit in their studios or watch TV in their one bedrooms. You'll not only get great ideas for setting up your own place, you'll get to voice your opinion about how people design their homes.
