Good Questions: How To Make A Landing Strip Here?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

I just moved into a relatively spacious (by NYC standards), newly renovated apartment in East Harlem. One enters through an impossibly long and narrow hallway, which I would like to use as a landing strip. The only problem is that it is SO narrow that I’m worried adding anything at all will make it claustrophobic! It’s also far too long to leave without any purpose or accoutrements. Also unfortunate is that there is no other area suitable to make into a
“landing strip,” as it leads directly to the kitchen. What am I to do?

Thank you! Samantha
