This book is on my wish list: Restoring a House in the City- A Guide to Renovating Townhouses, Brownstones, and Rowhouses-With Great Style. Talk about living the dream. I'd love some day to own a little (or big) pied-a-terre in the Big Apple and perhaps even restore it from the ground up. You know, bring a wreck back to its original shining glory. Yeah, you too?
Until then, I can't wait to flip through the pages of this tome and live vicariously, minus the dust, dirt, and tears, through those who've been there and are now living the dream.
