Find some forgotten square footage in the basement

Rooms for Improvement

The premier event for luxury agents and brokers
Luxury Connect | Oct. 16-18 | Beverly Hills

But in space-crazed Manhattan, every inch counts — even a lower level that’s so paint-splattered that it might have caused artist Jackson Pollock to recoil.
