Lived-In Feeling: Examples of Pre-War Architecture
The homes built in the pre-war era were embellished with special touches
-- high ceilings, arched doorways and nickel-plated features. During
this time in big cities, such as New York City, demand grew for apartments
that felt more like homes. Previously, apartments were not known for
being very comfortable. Some typical features of pre-war homes are
hardwood floors, moldings, high ceilings and fireplaces.
