Declining Debutante

A debutante never ages—well maybe a little—but always with grace, authority, and elegance. Virtually every shiny, new, aspirational apartment eventually suffers a rough decline. Even fashionable apartments meet their demise. The Debutante Apartments at one time were probably as stylish and glamorous as those on Gaston Avenue geared towards stewardesses, models, and young professionals, but in less than 15 years became weekly rentals and flophouses. New Urbanists,’ planners,’ and city officials’ love affair with density, apartment zoning and the short-term glamor of new apartments should always remember the Debutante. *Declining Debutante
