Those are much harder to fix. It is like when the only way to get to a bedroom is by walking through a bathroom. Or when the only way to get to the kitchen is to walk through somebodies bedroom.

Looking at the video, it seems that they could have simply put the entrance to the bathroom next to the kitchen. In that case, the buyer could redo the bathroom but that is such a waste of money. I'd prefer to have the entrance to the bathroom off the the kitchen rather than the dining room if that was the only other choice.

Yeah bedrooms shouldn't be hallways.

I'm going to move this to another forum where I think the discussion would be more robust.

Those ugly rowhouses that I1995 hates so much did more good for the boros than anything. They built them on ugly unused lots of land. They rejuvenated life back onto the block after so much was lost. Without them there'd be no gentrification of North Brooklyn and the South Bronx.

Here they're often built after tearing down a historic house on a larger than average lot, so the developer can build several where there was previously only one dwelling.

Maybe, but then again maybe not.


In some parts of the Bronx and elsewhere those row houses went up on lots that once held multifamily apartment buildings. Much of that "empty" land was result of the bad days of South Bronx and elsewhere when things were torched to get at insurance money.


Rezoning and or otherwise redeveloping those areas into single family homes reduced the supply of housing. This is especially true of "affordable" or whatever apartments that South Bronx and other areas now are in desperate need.

Yep! I wonder if The Bronx would be cheaper if either those original buildings survived, or if midrise apartments went back in their place.

Some parts of the East Bronx are full of aluminum awnings over windows and doors. I'll try to get a street view later. I wonder if there are parts of Brooklyn and Queens where those are common.
