After posting about the Beach House on an East Village apartment roof, one of our readers, Karen, commented that it reminded her of the rooftop house on 13th and 3rd, above the Kiehl’s store. Today was the first time I had a chance to check it out, and sure enough, there’s a clapboard house – with brick chimney! – perched on top of a 4-story apartment building.
A quick glance from the street would probably make you think this is nothing more than a roof addition. However, it seems to be a residence in itself.
Note the trees/shrubs on what I think might be a patio.
The thing that confuses me: why aren’t there more windows?
