A Cozy Brooklyn Apartment's Full-Blown Renovation — House Tour

Name: Katherine Steinberg
Location: Carroll Gardens — Brooklyn, NY
Size: 825 square feet
Years lived in: 2 years, owned

“Sleep on any major changes before committing,” is Katherine Steinberg’s sage advice. And after taking on a full-blown renovation when she moved into her Brooklyn apartment over two years ago, she’s had a lot of experience with making big updates in her home, everything from moving the location of a staircase to picking out wallpaper. “I have a tendency to make impulse decisions and I get very impatient. Waiting to get wallpaper samples and trying out a few different kinds helped me live with my decision,” she says.

Name: Peggy Wang
Location: Ridgewood, Queens
Size: 1100 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, owned

A few years ago, I kinda just woke up one day and decided that I didn’t want to live in a tiny apartment anymore. It was like a weird sudden existential outburst in my usual lazy put-everything-off-forever mindset. My boyfriend’s friend happened to be looking to buy a two-family house, which is what planted the idea in my head. It took about eight months between that day I had the epiphany to the day I closed on the house.

New Study Says NYC Has ‘Teflon’ Mice, And Here’s Why That’s Terrifying

Here is an entirely true story about my first week in my NYC studio.

I was cleaning the kitchen (because I am a certified grown-up), and I got out the vacuum to get the nooks and crannies beneath the dishwasher and cabinets. Before moving in, I had gone a full year without experiencing more than a spider in my living quarters and I was not going to entice any new friends with crumbs from my Cheerio-based dinner. As I moved the vacuum under the stove, it caught something. I pulled and got the corner of a sticky piece of paper that was home to about 500 dead roaches.

A "Modern-Meets-Dog-Obsessed-Old-Lady-Eclectic" Home — House Tour

Name: Tom Chirico and Carolyn McMenemy-Chirico
Location: Williamsburg — Brooklyn, New York
Size: 900 square feet
Years lived in: Renting 7 years

The original architectural details of this apartment — located on the top floor of a 1912 row house in a quiet spot in Williamsburg — are to die for. We’re talking well-preserved marble fireplaces, stunning hardwood floors, and enviable crown moldings. But for Tom and Carolyn, the building’s community is also a big bonus: “Our incredible landlord (and her two pups) and downstairs neighbors have become like second family, which gives the house this amazing welcoming feel the moment you walk in (and are typically greeted by any of our combined total of four dogs!).”
