Encouraging Social Apartment Living
New York apartment buildings are holding social events for residents to get to know their neighbors.
For many New Yorkers, it’s typical that they don’t know their neighbors, let alone talk to them. However, the New York Times reported that some buildings are changing that with organized social events, parties and even architecture which encourages interaction.
The Times writes:
How buildings become social is something of a mystery. To be sure, there are buildings that are marketed as having a slate of organized social events and ample opportunities to meet people. The Gotham Organization offers wine tastings and sushi-and-sake parties at two of its luxury Midtown rentals, the Atlas New York and the Nicole. This summer at the Atlas, it sponsored a concert series with an open bar. All residents of Gotham buildings were invited.
