6. The South Tower of The San Remo Was Considered More Desirable
When The San Remo was constructed, the south tower was considered to be more desirable as it offered better views of Midtown. As a result, it was fitted with duplex apartments, which were approximately 6,000-square-feet. The north tower, on the other hand, only held single floor rooms, which were typically 2,500-square-feet, two-bedroom units.
This was prior to the Great Depression, when the majority of the south tower’s duplexes were subdivided, as previously mentioned in Secret #3.
