Frank Gilbert, Preservationist in New York and Beyond, Dies at 91

Frank Gilbert, a preservationist who helped save Grand Central Terminal from being ravaged by a 55-story skyscraper and in the mid-1960s incubated New York City’s pioneering landmarks law, which undergirded preservation movements across the country, died on May 14 in Chevy Chase, Md. He was 91.

The cause was pneumonia and complications of Parkinson’s disease, his wife, Ann Hersh Gilbert, said.

Mr. Gilbert,

What Is ‘Good Cause Eviction,’ and What Does It Mean for Renters?

New York renters are feeling the squeeze, with rents in Manhattan up 32 percent in April from the same time a year ago, according to a report, and housing courts busy as evictions resume after a pandemic moratorium. Some renters are wondering: Is there any relief? Tenant advocates say yes, pointing to a bill introduced last year in the New York State Legislature called Prohibition of Eviction Without Good Cause. But what is “good cause eviction,” and what would it mean for renters and landlords if the

A Room in Midtown Is Quietly Fighting the Battle Against City Noise

People like to tell me all the ways that New York is too loud. They send emails to my Ask Real Estate column complaining about the noises that torment them during the day and keep them up at night. There are the usual suspects — barking dogs, crying babies, outdoor diners, jackhammers and sirens. But even seemingly pleasant sounds — wind chimes, children playing, opera singing — can induce rage, given the right circumstances.

So when I stepped

Priceless Sculptures Are ‘Literally Being Chipped Away’

Among the more than 33,000 residents of Parkchester, the sprawling 1940s Bronx apartment complex, the most exuberant characters tend to hang out at the buildings’ entrances and corners: folk singers and firefighters, accordion players and harlequins, steelworkers and mermaids. There are exotic fauna as well, not typically found in such urban environs: gazelles, puffins, kangaroos and bears.

Vivid and three-dimensional, these neighborhood fixtures

A House With ‘Good Bones’? ‘Original Details’? It Could Be a Complete Wreck.

Take a gander at the real estate listing supplements that often come with your newspaper, and you’ll find no shortage of city, suburban, beach and mountain Shangri-Las.

One recent edition of View, a publication of Coldwell Banker Realty, touted, in no particular order: a backyard oasis in northern New Jersey, an elegant sunlit Tudor and a “stunningly luxurious French Provincial” with “breathtaking panoramic views” in Watchung, N.J.

Open Houses Present an Inviting Target for Thieves

When my grandmother passed away in 1981, my mother, the executor of her estate, oversaw the selling of her one-bedroom apartment on 72nd Street and Third Avenue. Doyle, the New York-based appraising company, assessed her furnishings, and her personal and sentimental belongings were removed. All that remained was her furniture and my mother’s beautiful satin A-line wedding dress, which was left hanging in the coat closet.

As with any open house,

Equity in U.S. Homes Rises in the First Quarter of 2022

Americans have more equity in their homes, thanks to a red-hot housing market pushing up the value of their properties, new research shows.

In the first quarter of 2022, 44.9 percent of the homes in the United States were considered “equity-rich,” meaning the balance of the loan on the home was 50 percent or less of the estimated market value, according to a new report from Attom, a real estate data analytics firm.

Catskill, N.Y.: A Place Where ‘People Are Jazzed About Making Art’

Rob Spillman and Elissa Schappell closed on their Catskill, N.Y., house, an 1840s farmhouse on 6.4 acres, in the middle of an ice storm in February. “We had to keep stopping to get the ice off the windshield wipers,” said Mr. Spillman, 57, a literary consultant and freelance writer who founded the now-defunct literary magazine “Tin House” with Ms. Schappell.

Early Adopters of Remote Work, They Moved Upstate Before Covid

When Sharon Lipovsky and Colin Phillips left the Washington, D.C., area to pursue the dream of a bucolic life in the country, they were ahead of the curve. It was 2018, long before the pandemic hit, and few companies were telling their employees they could work from anywhere but the office.

Shopping for Adirondack Chairs

A hefty outdoor seat with a laid-back posture and wide, flat arms, the Adirondack chair has a lot to recommend it. It generally stays where you put it, resists harsh weather and has arms that double as cocktail tables.

Most important, though, “it just screams summer,” said Ann Stillman O’Leary, an interior designer based in Lake Placid, N.Y., who has written books on Adirondack style.

I’m on a Monthly Lease. Can My Landlord Suddenly Evict Me and My Dog?

Q: My wife and I have rented an apartment in a three-family house in Queens, N.Y., for the past decade. Whenever our son is on rotation in the U.S. military, we dog sit his golden retriever. Our original lease gave us permission to do this, but it expired years ago and we’ve been on a month-to-month agreement ever since. We are now dog sitting again. The other day, the landlord told me that the building allowed dogs only under 20 pounds, even

Vacationers Turned the Hamptons Into a Year-Round Home. Business Followed.

In the shadow of the oldest lighthouse in New York, summer in the Hamptons and Montauk once meant strawberry ice cream cones from a mom-and-pop shop, and Necco wafers and Pop Rocks from a candy store known for its fudge. For locals, an influx of new faces would wane at the onset of autumn.

By the winter, commercial areas sat speckled with darkened storefronts as vacationers retreated to New York City boroughs and beyond. Snow would blanket a

Helicopters vs. Homeowners: A Very Hamptons Fight

With the serene beaches of the Hamptons soon 3,500 feet below his box-fresh white sneakers, Rob Weisenthal, the chief executive of Blade, a by-the-seat helicopter charter company, boasted how the service could slice above the slog of the Long Island Expressway. A New Yorker can go from Manhattan to East Hampton in 40 minutes, better than the expressway’s two-and-a-half hours — or sometimes six — with traffic.

“This is a game changer,”

Saving Modernism in the Hamptons

Timothy Godbold, an interior designer based in Southampton, used to just be an enthusiastic fan of the angular modernist homes perched atop dunes near his house. And, sometimes, when he discovered an early architectural gem that really excited him, he’d share a photo with his followers on Instagram.

But in March 2020, after he posted an image of a home designed by the architect Norman Jaffe in 1977, known as the Lloyds House, a fellow designer

Jeremy Dennis, Shinnecock Nation Member, Opens Hamptons Art Studio

On the reservation of the Shinnecock Nation, about three miles west of Southampton Village, stands a house that is half-painted a juicy, glossy red. A circular sculpture — a mandala — composed of seashells collected from Hamptons beaches, lies near the front door, where it is disturbed only occasionally by deer or a wayward UPS delivery truck.

This is Ma’s House & BIPOC Art Studio, founded last August by Jeremy Dennis, a fine-art photographer
