    • I would look for the easy to feel or spot things, like humidity, mold - in bathroom grout / shower corners (especially in apartments as most bathrooms do not have windows or sufficient ventilation), discolored or funky smelling water (always run the taps), noise transmission - is the place near a busy 24/7 convenience store, a bar, a school?, operable windows (you’d be surprised how many people have windows that either don’t open or are painted shut) - fresh air is the best way to move stale contaminated air, yes even NYC outside air is cleaner than the air inside your apartment! 

      I often suggest to clients looking to purchase to first test the place for air & water quality, mold and any other potentially hazardous toxins. There are plenty of building inspectors or building biologists who can help at this stage.
