plenty of fugly one story buildings around. keep the nice historic homes that add charm and character to a neighborhood and demolish the shit that serves no one... like that building that one story building that once housed a duane reade at the w4th street station. build a fuckin skyscaper there. lose a single historic house and piece by piece this city will be that fugly shit you see all over bk soon enough

I'm also in a NYC apartment. i dont even bother with plastic expansion anchors and use these ive hit everything from cheap gypsum board to plaster and metal lathe. these seem to do the trick almost every time. for masonry use the zinc planted expansion anchors. theres been a few times where i cant find a stud and the drywall /plaster is of such shit quality nothing sticks. i patch these walls up and go ground supported for those areas.
