What are you shopping for? I’ve been looking all over for three months. This is the second apartment I’ve seen on the Upper West Side.
What do you think? I like downtown a little better. [Still] it’s nice and fresh. It’s in good shape. I like the contrast of the prewar with the modern interiors.
Who: Gerald Tam, investment-management analyst, and Mike Goldenberg, business-development associate.
What are you shopping for? GERALD: We just wanted to see what it’s like. We’re not in the market.
What do you think? MIKE: It’s really nice. We’re in a high-rise now, but we like the whole nineteenth-century look: the moldings, the high ceilings, the brass door knocker. I want that door knocker.
Who: Kenny Pasternak, hedge-fund owner, and son, Dan (pictured).
What are you shopping for? KENNY: A two- or three-bedroom so we can spend time in the city and enjoy what it has to offer—artistically, culturally, culinarily, and, if my wife dumps me, the nightlife.
What do you think? KENNY: One floor up without an elevator is a tolerable compromise for light and fourteen-foot ceilings.
