From our living room windows. Well, maybe it should be the great room? It’s all one big room: living room, eating area, kitchen. We were noticing that city noises seem less intrusive than suburban ones.
There’s traffic, as you see, and even ambulances and police cars and roaring motorcycles. It’s partly a matter of expectations, I think; one doesn’t expect silence. And it’s being on the third/fourth floors in a commercial-style building, high enough up that the noise doesn’t seem so much in your space. It’s down there. The windows are also heavy-duty and seem to do a great job of muffling sound.
We like it.
