Good Questions: Thoughts/Tips on Living Up High?

Dear AT,

Please give me some tips - I live in a top floor apt. (9th floor) with a spectacular partial view but having lived on ground floor or first floor apts for the last 20 years, am having a hard time adjusting to the lack of foliage and the intense sun (south exposure). I also feel trapped b/c I can't get out fast.

What is it people love about living up high? Maybe I could learn to love it.

Also, this is the first time I had windows only on one side, all previous apts. had several exposures. I'm having difficulty with the fact that air does not come in and flow thru apt. Unless I open the front door.
