Funny, I Thought Everyone Wanted To Live In The Brady Bunch House

Psychologists who study interactions between people and environments say that buyers often unknowingly seek out spaces that are physically evocative of childhood havens. And the aha! feeling that a person experiences upon walking into a space can often be attributed to his or her recognition of unconscious yet happy memories. On the other hand, those who gravitate to a housing location or style that is the opposite of what they had in childhood are frequently making a statement that they are not like their parents.
Not surprisingly, everyone in NYC grew up in a 1BR, 500-sf apartment.
