We've recently seen homes in spaces that were formerly a Firehouse and a Bank. The newest New York Magazine has a great little peek into the studio and living space of artists
Thomas Nozkowski and Joyce Robinsformer. They moved into a former synagogue on Hester street in 1967. After spending about $3000 on renovations, the space hasn't changed a lot in the forty years they've lived and worked there...
They built the bookshelves themselves.
