NY Home Improvement Blog Patrol

The gals at Newsday's Real LI blog posted a review of a great kitchen design book, which is a must-see if your taste skews traditional/country in anyway. It's called "Country French Kitchens" and was written by Carolina Fernandez. The book is filled with pictures of kitchens that adhere to the basic "Country French" decor principles in the New York and Connecticut area. Not surprisingly, there are no shortage of yellow, orange and brown hues within.

Are Manhattan's luxury high rental buildings becoming the city's version of suburban gated communities? Tom Acitelli poses this question, or rather makes the comment on the The Real Estate, the New York Observer's fantastic blog about NYC real estate and development.

The fearless columnists at Curbed posted the follow up to the temporary wall controversy in Stuyvesant Town. Wait until you see the "privacy walls" the residents were provided with to separate their bedrooms from the living rooms in these units...nice touch, LOL.
