My friend used to have a lovely view over
the rooftops of Soho (see below)
and a good chunk of sky, a fairly rare
thing in Manhattan.
About two-thirds of that view has been
replaced by a mostly glass building, so now
he has a view of his own red-brick digs
—and whoever lives behind that glass.
(I've talked about this before—rampant real
estate has become a pet peeve.)
