Trending: NYC Walk-Up Apartments

Apparently, it is cheaper to purchase an apartment in New York if you don't have extra costs like doormen, or elevators.  With that in mind, the New York Times reports that Walk-Up Apartments are Trending Up.

The lady in the picture said the third floor stairs are a part of her daily exercise.
I don't get why people would accept a place on the fifth floor, say, that they have to walk up to.  I didn't like living on the third floor in my dorm in school, and that's when I was young and in shape.

Only in a place like New York does this make sense to the real estate owners.
