Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
zomg my first lot upload, enjoy the outcome of my painfully hard work with super-duper details!

When we went to New York for a holiday, our cab driver asked us whether we had given him the right address when he pulled in front of a building that looked exactly like the one in the middle.. New York is amazing in all of it's dirtyness and weird impractical stuff, so let's have our sims enjoy some of it too!

The lot has three buildings, which the shortest and the middle one are just basically deco-buildings only. The taller red bricked includes a groovy apartment, and a storage space that can be used as a space for band practices and parties, or as artistic studio or whatever you want and need for your simmies!

The apartment has an elevator that goes to two floors. The other floor is for NPC characters and the other for your simmies.
The apartment is decorated in groovy city style, and it has one room that is currently used as an office, but it can easily be changed into an extra-bedroom. There's also the iconic fire ladder thingies that you see everywhere in NYC, but they obviously are just deco so don't forget the fire alarms.
There are also 4 parking spaces.

The other deco building is a house under heavy renovation, but in the ground floor is a guitar shop. The other building is purely decoration only, and your sims can't enter neither of them not even by mistake, so they won't get stuck there or anything.

I've used decoration objects from WA and couple of AMB objects, so the lot works okay without the two EP's, but you'll lose a lot of the details of the outside. Late night is a must though, the lot isn't meant to be run without it, so don't even try it!

Destroy pattern by Around the sims 3

I have used codes while building, so be careful not to remove parts of the buildings (like the fire stairs, elevators..) since you won't be able to get the as they were if you aren't experienced in using codes in build mode!

The lot size is 35 x 25

Lot Size: 3x2
Lot Price: Furnished 37,406
Unfurnished 7,589

Number of bedrooms:
      1 Bedroom
Custom Content Included:

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I love it! It reminds me of my son's apartment in NYC. I did find some routing problems however. My Sim can't use the frig and the sink in the bathroom because of the items around it. I moved the frig and table under the sink so she can use them. I love the way you had it better (as far as the aesthetics) but I had to play this lot! It's perfect for LN. By the way, I put it where the fire station was.

This is great, but I am curious to know if you were able to get NPC's to move into the lot after moving your own in there, all the apartment buildings I have made refuse to let NPC's move in they just remain forever empty.
#35 Old 8th Nov 2010 at 6:30 AM
I just love all the little details of your lot and your pictures are great, very atmospheric. If this had been made with a computer crashing every 30 minutes, I can't imagine what you could do with one that is working perfectly...

Awesome work!

This apartment is just awesome. Too bad I borked my game "a little" and can not play the lot as much as I'd like yet but I placed it near the bridge, moved my sims in immediately to see how fast I fall in love with the house. It was very fast indeed! I hope your computer behaves and we see more lots like this from you. Thank you for sharing.

Love this lot--I added this lot to my customized version of Bridgeport and am using it as the legacy house for my band!

So funny--the NPC that is living in the downstairs apartment is a magician (tee hee!). Seriously, this lot is made out of pure awesomeness--perfect for my grungy Brooklyn-esque neighborhood.

Hey, is there any reason for this lot not to appear while being placed in the neighbourhood? It's not the EP, nor the cc.
