“Besides being an absurd amount of money for a windowless bedroom, aren’t these technically illegal?”

“Dear PoPville,

I was looking at floor plans for The Shay and noticed so many of the layouts don’t have any windows in the bedrooms. (Including the corner apartment with 2 full balconies for a whopping $3,116 a month). Besides being an absurd amount of money for a windowless bedroom, aren’t these technically illegal? My understanding from living in NYC that in order to qualify as a bedroom, it must have two means for egress. NYC at least had the decently to paint things as a “home office” to appease the housing department. Wondering how the law shakes out in DC.”
