Living in a Thermos?

On St. Marks Avenue in Brooklyn is an ordinary looking 80-year old apartment building complete with red bricks, fire escapes, and currently undergoing renovations, a common sight in New York.  But the building is anything but ordinary.

The refinished building is airtight – like a Thermos – with extra insulation and triple-glazed windows, resulting in about 70 percent less energy usage than other comparable buildings.  And it has become quite trendy, with dozens of airtight buildings around the city.

It sounds very eco-friendly in terms of energy conservation.  But I guess the days of opening the windows to let in some fresh Spring air are gone…

    This vertical dweller is old school — I’ll take my energy conservation via open windows.
