People choose new places to live or rent for various reasons. There are different housing options because people are different with different needs and desires. An article titled “A Duplex Built for Two” at the New York Times describes the reason why a couple choose to rent a duplex in New York. The couple is planning on getting married in June of 09, and they didn’t wanted to live together before the wedding. They were searching for a living situation and found that the duplex style allows two levels and some separation until they get married and move all the way in together. The couple even paid for a year in advance with a deposit to a duplex renovator to live in it once it was completed. It just proves that in life everyone needs different things, and in this case a duplex was made to order.
