Alps ‘n’ Balcs

A couple of centuries ago, people traveling through the Alps used to pull the curtains on the windows on the carriages because the scene was just too terrible.

I wonder if the same sort of thinking explains why so few New York City hotels have balconies. Did the architects think the street scenes were ugly, scary, or uninteresting? Or was it because of something more mundane, such as weather or concerns about plummeting martini glasses?

Oh well. Too bad. I’d love to be sitting on a balcony now, watching the sun redden the Empire State Building.
