The following headline in the New York Post caught my eye:
Manhattan couple says hulking Duane Reade air conditioner blows away their view
According to the newspaper, they own a $3 million duplex on East 86th Street next to Duane Reade. Lo and behold, the store is planning to construct a huge eight-foot-high air conditioning unit on its roof.
Uh oh, there goes any view (from the second and third floors) and down goes the Upper East Side co-op’s value.
