Default Pre WWI New York apartment building floor plans

This just popped up in a Farce Broke group that I'm part of... and once again, I thought of you gentlefolk.

The floor plans below are all taken from 1908 and 1910 brochures. But just because they were giving up their mansions didn't mean these upper and middle class families were ready to forgo luxury. The apartments feature up to a dozen rooms each

The separation of household and servants is striking. Many of those have completely separate lobbies and elevators, so servants can come and go through the kitchens rather than the foyers.

Possible gaming implication: That's the way in and out without being noticed.
