This street is too expensive for me. Of course I'll never afford an apartment here, but even walking down the block I feel like I'm living beyond my means. To give you an idea, a 3-bedroom apartment in the Turin (at 333 CPW), will cost you about $3.5M. Granted, I'm sure it's a nice space, but could you imagine the type of estate you could get anywhere else in the country for that kind of scratch?
Crossing the street and walking on the park side feels slightly more welcoming than staying on the west side of the block. Over there, passing by doorman after doorman, I get nothing but questionable looks as I randomly snap away pictures of the most mundane things. They must think I'm nuts.
