Mirador’s Jeffrey Hannon Featured in Brick Underground on Fireplaces in NYC

The idea of cozying up next to a crackling fire conjures up the feeling of warm, happy memories; but in the city that never sleeps a fireplace quickly loses its romantic appeal when tenants are faced with maintenance costs and the actual task of finding a fireplace, something that is becoming harder to find after a 2014 measure was passed banning all new construction of woodburning fireplaces.

In order to find out more on woodburning fireplaces, and where to look for them, The Brick Underground spoke to Mirador Real Estate agent Jeffrey Hannon. In the article he discusses the best places to find woodburning fireplaces, the appeal for tenants to have a fireplace in the City, and how landlords and coops approach existing fireplaces.

In order to find out why the neighborhood remains relatively inexpensive despite dramatic price increases elsewhere, The Observer spoke with Mirador Real Estate agent Jeffrey Hannon. He notes that East Harlem has a historical disconnect with the Upper East Side, and that its town homes are not as well refurbished.

Fire Escapes –Alluring Amenity or Something to be Absolutely Avoided

There’s a quietly quaint charisma surrounding the steel gratings of fire escapes stacked alongside many NYC buildings; becoming somewhat of an iconic feature. Even Hollywood has taken note, showcasing these rusty rails center stage in one of the most revered rom-coms of all time – Pretty Woman. I mean who can forget that final scene where Richard Gere rescues Julia Roberts from the fire escape, bouquet and all!

While we might not be Julia Roberts, we can appreciate the magic attached to that scene, and the attraction of buying or renting a unit featuring our very own fire escape. Not only does it grant extra outdoor space (a hot commodity in Manhattan), it also provides the safety of a quick and easy exit from an apartment in case of a fire. 

Whatever the aesthetic charm or outside appeal may be, the truth of the matter is some city fire escapes are dilapidated, leading to fatal disasters. This frightening fact has now got many New Yorkers wondering – are fire escapes a feature or foe?

Mirador’s Associate Broker, Jeffrey Hannon sat down with DNAinfo to share his thoughts on this very issue. He shares with the publication that “whether people see fire escapes as an amenity or a security risk depends a lot on the neighborhood they’re renting in.”

Jeffrey delves deeper into the pros and cons regarding having a fire escape outside your own home, covering everything from security issues vs. the enviable “Manhattan patio” space some New Yorkers feel it provides. Here’s everything you need to know before deciding if a fire escape is a feature for you and your family.
