Diana in NYC's Profile
|Display Name:||Diana in NYC|
I was raised in an ancient house with a working fireplace, a wood pile, and an ancient boiler from the 1920's that we used only for heating water. The solution is to 1) heat yourself, 2) heat your bed, and 3) cover your floors with carpets and your windows with curtains, the thicker the better. The Victorians lived the way they did for a reason, OK?

FiatLex, co-op maintenance often pays an underlying mortgage on a building. A condo is an interest in land, legally. A co-op is a corporation which owns a building, and the residents own shares in the co-op which leases their apartments to them. Elevators are also quite expensive, and then there's the issue of paying for managing agent or doormen or other staff. Toss in real-estate taxes that depend more upon prevailing tax rates the year the co-op was founded than on anything else and you see where the money is going.

use a potato. Seriously. Take an appropriately size Idaho potato and screw it into the broken socket until it catches and then unscrew the "potato" bulb. It works and as a bonus you get a Dada-ist potato lightbulb.
