Best cities for green living…NYC?…who knew?
Package Concierge Blog
The progress society has made in terms of eco-friendly technology and building standards mean that more people are seeking ways to live green and have a smaller footprint on the environment. One of the ways you can help the environment is to live in green apartments when seeking a home in a city or urban area. Every city is working in its own way to make the Earth a better place for future generations, but there are a few that stand out above the rest. Although there are green apartment sand for-rent communities throughout the U.S., these 5 cities (in no particular order) have high concentrations of green-built communities, and go the distance in making it easier for you to live green.
Washington, DC is where the U.S. Green Building Council (the nonprofit that created and oversees LEED certification) is headquartered. That alone gives this city an edge…

Unique walls, large windows, open floor plans, vaulting ceilings, pillars, stone, wood, and metal…add them all together for more loft space love. Love this Loblenz loft in Denmark via Peter Hardt Immobilien. Architecturally brilliant.
Who says a loft can’t feel warm? This Bartley Loft in Toledo, Ohio feels warm and inviting with warm tones, soft lighting and rugs. Love the exposed pipe. The windows are gorgeous.
A wall of books and brick walls, pillars and exposed pipes complete this beautiful New York loft apartment space. Love the carpet layout.
Another New York loft, this time in Soho. The windows and floors, hands down, are to die for. The decor and design options are endless in this space.
Another loft love with a lot of warmth. Colors are soft and lovely and perfect for this Seattle loft. What a view!
Fresh and sleek. This modern loft in Arizona is so simple and stylish. Another great window view. My love for loft apartments grows.

Bright and spacious, I’ve found loft love in interior designer, Barbara Littman’s loft in Chelsea, New York. What is inspiring too, is this 69 year old mother of three with six grandchildren, who hasn’t nestled herself into some comfy little cottage-like atmosphere, but is spreading her wings instead of folding them. She went for a master’s degree in architecture in her 50s. Now that’s encouragement. A woman still on the move, Littman teaches interior and furniture design at Kean University in New Jersey and also at the NJ Institute of Technology.
She purchased this loft in 2009 for just under $4 Million. After two years of renovation, $190,000 to revamp to her taste, and with the aid of New York architect Robert D. Henry, Littman now has the space of her dreams.
What she says of her newly renovated loft space: “When I look out the window, I just love being part of the city. It’s the energy here that’s always been something for me.”
More of this loft at Loftenberg.

Incredible…the price and square footage…decor not so much…
Home voyeurs.... a peek into homes
It’s the most expensive Co-op apartment ever in NYC. But whoever has this much cash available, or gets his bank to join in, will not regret it. A whooping 12000 square feet (which is about 1200 m2) and so many terraces that one was converted in an outdoor ice skating rink for a party once. The owner, Grammy Nominated songwriter Denise Rich (what’s in a name), is selling it as she suffers from empty nest syndrome. I wonder, with a house this big, if you even notice if your housemates are home or out…..
The apartment comprises two floors with a total of 19 rooms, amazing views of the whole of Central Park a professional recording studio, gym and billiard room and several kitchens and full bathrooms.
At $5.400 per square foot, it’s actually quite a lot ‘cheaper than the record condo — not co-op — price of $13,000 per square…
