Apartment Hunting

I have been helping a friend with her apartment hunt recently. She asked me to photograph some of the apartments so that she could e-mail the photos to her family. We saw 5 apartments in two days and all of them in Queens.

Finding an apartment to buy in New York City can be a daunting task due to the myriad of options like whether to buy a condo or a co-op; a pre-war or a post-war (as in built before or after WWII); uptown or downtown; Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island or the Bronx; high rise or low rise, close to work or close to subway, etc.

This photo shows a hallway that leads into the living room (left) of a one-bedroom apartment on the top floor of a low rise pre-war building. The double doors in the photo is the hallway closet.
