No fiberglass replacements here!

Fantastic western light and classic Greene Street cast-iron views through new massive 5ft x 9ft double hung, mahogany framed, thermo-paned windows spanning the broad 30ft width of the space. Dramatic 11ft high ceiling. Museum grade maple floors with 15 inches of sound insulation between floors and quadruple sheetrock with wool bats between the rooms.
