  1. In Hudson Heights, in one of those old apartment buildings with a shared common park space, grills, a gym, a shared guest apartment, and a shared responsibility for the maintenance of the common space people say "amenities" and love it. In midtown with some theory laid on it, people call it "tramp architecture" and compare it to the Favella.
