Life Dream Status: A $15 Million Retro Sci-Fi Apartment

Sci Fi Apartment

The internet is making fun of this ridiculous $15 million Park Avenue apartment that’s been decorated to look like the set of a 1960s’ sci-fi TV show, but I am completely smitten. I mean, how fun would it be to have guests say “Beam me up, Scotty!” when they board the private elevator, or using the built-in phone consoles to call your favorite takeout place and say, “Chow mein delivered in 20 minutes. Make it so!”? The answer is $15 million worth of fun. See another photo of the interior of this “Star Trek”-inspired real estate gem after the jump! [Gothamist] Keep reading »

Looking for a new apartment can be difficult anywhere, but in NYC it’s a bloodsport, and tales of shitty apartments are legendary.

Enter “The Worst Room,” a Tumblr chronicling, all-too-accurately, the shitty state of New York City apartment shopping. Tumblr creator Ryan says he made the site to “share the Craigslist postings I sift through on a daily basis trying to find decent, affordable housing in New York City.” And boy, are these crappy and overpriced — these apartments all-too-closely resemble crime scenes. And yes, I can say with experience, these are completely accurate depictions of how shitty and expensive city living can be. (There are also pleasant and affordable pads, too.)

So let’s take a gander at a few more terrible rooms Ryan’s found, shall we?

You know those people who move into a new house or apartment, and seem perfectly happy to live out of boxes for, like, ever? Yeah, I’m not one of those people. As soon as I moved into my new apartment, I began unpacking, organizing and putting things away. I really hate having to live in transition, and the sooner I can get my art on the walls, and my forks in the silverware drawer, the better. I’m a control freak, and I’m also one of those people whose internal anxiety is deeply affected by her external circumstances. Which means I have a hard time concentrating or feeling happy in unfinished, cluttered spaces. I’m fine if the closets or cabinets are disorganized, I just don’t want to have to see it.

But Alysha Findley over at Apartment Therapy takes a vastly different approach…

Because I’m a jealous and petty person, I can’t stand to read lifestyle/home/craft blogs. Who are these people with endless amounts of free time, money and craft experience who seem to effortlessly turn their homes into the back page of a Martha Stewart magazine? They obviously don’t have cats. And because I’m jealous and petty, and not going to subscribe to Folk Magazine anytime soon (though they keep threatening me with a subscription), I need shortcuts to elevate me from sloth to semi-functioning, well-designed person.

Which is why we’ve collected a bunch of easy, really easy, tips to help make your house one others can be jealous of. Keep reading »

If the three bedroom, 3.5 bathroom NYC apartment (in the Gramercy Park neighborhood in Manhattan) Karl Lagerfeld has put on the market for $5.2 million looks completely uninhabited, well, that’s because it is. The German couturier never actually moved in to — and most likely never even spent a night in — the stunning airy abode he paid $6.575 million for six years ago, and there’s no sign of the apartment having been anything more than one very beautiful and exquisitely pristine model home. Both the location, which overlooks the park, and the space are ideal: the building’s address, 50 Gramercy Park North, is a division of the Gramercy Park Hotel… as in, the staff of the hotel is also by extension the staff of your home. Two words come to mind: room service. Not for the Kaiser, of course, and definitely not in this virginal crib. What’s the point in having a magnificent apartment if you can’t eat in bed? None, I say. And, um, what’s good with the creepy headless statue? [Curbed NY]
