To those who decided to nest in the city for its quiet and solitude, this is the home for you. Priced at $12.5 million, 92 Laight Street has been customized to offer abundant views of northern Manhattan, without any of the noise.
The Platinum Properties listing promises “acoustical attenuation throughout,” with each wall “insulated with two layers of sheetrock” and a ceiling constructed “using a neoprene system to isolate noise from above.” To drown out the revelers next door, “Quiet Rock was used on walls shared by adjacent apartment and building hallway.”
Thoroughly impenetrable to outside noises, the interior of the loft has been fitted with more than enough technology to keep you occupied: an automated system controls the lighting, sound system, window shades, security, temperature, and humidity. To make your life even easier, “each individual room features a Crestron touchpad interface with individual zones for specific comfort requirements”. Sounds like every hermit’s dream.
