Daniel J. Friedman, LEED AP, MsRED, M.Arch., Certified NYC Contractor
This blog doesn’t sound like an architect/designer. Who is this Alli chick?
I’m a friend of Daniel’s. And honestly, I think his stuff is just so damn awesome that I made him put it on a blog. (Read: I put it on a blog and he bought me a cookie.) And then I promised him that clients would fall into his lap. So don’t prove me wrong. (Important update: I was right!)
So if you’re Alli, then who’s this Daniel character and why should I let him into my apartment?
Daniel does complete, floor-to-ceiling revamping of New York City apartments. Think design meets art. He’ll make you a chandelier. From scratch. I’m not even kidding. People will ask you where you got it because they’ll want one, and then you’ll tell them that it’s a one-of-a-kind hand-made deal and they’ll cry and be jealous. Or Daniel will turn your boring windows into beautiful French ones. For reals. And while I’m not exactly rolling in dough, he’s super affordable for this kind of thing. And not just because he told me so. Shoot us an email and find out for yourself.
OK, enough about your love for Daniel. Who IS he? Can I trust him alone in my apartment?
Ah, Daniel. So many nouns, all of them strange: Napkin sketcher extraordinaire, handyman, builder, painter, and connoisseur of everyday objects, with a knack for transforming them into art.
Oh yes, and he’s chronically over-schooled: Daniel has a Masters in Architecture from UPenn, but then he decided to go ahead and get a Masters in Real Estate Development from Columbia, too. He’s clearly a reckless idiot, and you should definitely be wary.
Are you guys dating?
Is he gay?
No, he’s just that good. (I don’t endorse that link; I just found it.)
OK, fine. I might contact him. But how do I know I’ll like his work?
Um, hello, have you seen these posts? His work is awesome, and it’s not just me. Plus, sometimes you’ll get sweet, dinky sketches like the one below. And he’ll listen to you and stuff. And then your apartment will be so totally sick and unique, people will be flocking to your dinner parties.

OMG: It’s DANIEL! The mystery behind the madness.
