Residential Resources

Postwar Buildings


Postwar Buildings (often referred to as ‘luxury doorman buildings’) are those built after WWII to the present. They are high-rise buildings, often with smaller rooms and alcoves. Most feature through-the wall or central air conditioning and other amenities. Most have doormen.

Prewar Buildings


Prewar Buildings were built before WWII. They usually have larger and wider rooms, fireplaces, hardwood floors and higher ceilings with moldings. Most, but not all, have doormen and other amenities.

Town Houses


Town Houses or brownstones are single family houses that in some cases have been converted into multi-unit apartment buildings. Most of these were built in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Many offer gardens, fireplaces, and beautiful floors and ornamental interior details. Some are landmarked.

Loft Apartments


Loft Apartments are typically found in former commercial buildings that have been converted to residential use. These often feature open spaces, high ceilings and are mostly located in lower Manhattan.

Walkup Buildings


Walk-up Buildings are usually five story buildings without an elevator or doorman. They are among the most affordable housing in Manhattan, but offer no services or amenities.
