Do you think the number 13 is unlucky? There's enough superstition surrounding the digit that it affects condos. CityRealty found that, out of 629 New York buildings with 13 or more floors, only 55 labeled the 13th floor as the 13th floor. That's just 9 percent, whereas the remaining 91 percent call the floor something less sinister, like 14, M, or Penthouse (if it's the top floor).
