You know what the greenest apt in NYC is? Some tiny hole-in-a-wall beyond-studio in an ancient, ancient building that time (and the "uber green" jet set) forgot. There lives a little old man, perhaps a grocer or small-time electrician, who has lived there since him and his wife moved in in '62. He hasn't redecorated since. He lives alone now, subsisting on apples and pastrami sandwiches, not knowing the difference between green the color and green(washing) the design principle and "lifestyle". He uses only what he needs and doesn't pride himself on it or make the NY Times. He's a simple man living a simple life and HE'S something to aspire to.
What Makes This 'The Greenest Apartment in New York'?

yuck. I cannot believe how many people love this. Maybe because it's COMPLETELY accessible...in a bad way. Hate the white on white on white furniture, overly simple color scheme, and beyond basic and big box EVERYTHING. Where's the gorgeous mix of vintage, thrift, hand-me-down, and curbside (with a little Barcelona chair here and there) AT is known for? Also, get out of the photo, actors. Maybe I shouldn't have watched the HGTV clip before viewing the house tour. Baaad taste in my mouth. I know it's just my opinion but...yuck.
