Move into a vintage building!! The crazy-thick plaster walls are amazing for soundproofing. For the past 7 years I lived in two different 1920s buildings and could rarely ever hear my neighbors with whom I shared walls. I could hear people if they were talking in the hallway, but rarely heard anyone on the other side of the wall. I could never go back to a more modern building. Thank goodness I adore old buildings! Also, live on the top floor if you can because with the old building you will get the squeaky wood floors.
How Can I Tell if an Apartment Has Adequate Soundproofing Before Moving In?Good Questions
