Ocean Home Magazine October/November 2014 There’s nothing quite like gazing across the exhilarating Manhattan skyline from the top of a soaring high-rise - whether you’re in the iconic Empire State Building or Walker Tower’s new luxury condos in Chelsea – and New York City-based Skyline Windows helps makes those views even better. Founded in 1921, Skyline has worked with the New York City Landmarks Commission since the commission’s inception, helping to restore icons like the Hearst Tower and the Waldorf Astoria New York with its high-performance, custom-made windows. Skyline’s European-inspired design elements and state-of-the-art functionality are also idea for residential use, especially its new ADA-compliant, crank-operated, tilt-and-turn windows.
You can open and close the window with less than five pounds of force,” says CEO Steven Kraus, who is the third generation of the Kraus family to helm the business.
"We’re not talking about a small window,” he adds. “The tilt-and-turn enables us to build larger operating windows which maximize views and ensures an ease-of-use that will fit in with any high-end luxury apartment.”
