How to Fake It
If a real fireplace is a pipe dream, consider Crane’s new portable space heater ($90 at Best Buy, 1880 Broadway, at 62nd St.; 212-246-9734). At fifteen inches, it’s compact enough to nestle in the corner of a studio or plop atop a desk in a chilly
office. Once on, the cool-to-the-touch heater flashes ambient “roaring embers,” a.k.a. an LED glow over the fake coals, all the while toastily warming 250 square feet.
