This column, Lawyerly Lairs, is all about real estate voyeurism. But today’s story emphasizes the voyeurism over the real estate. Let’s hope there are some Rear Window fans among you.

In Cobble Hill, one of Brooklyn’s loveliest and leafiest precincts, the “sexy shower” of one attorney abode has got the neighborhood talking. Lawyers are often focused on minimizing exposure, but neighbors claim that’s not the case for the owners of a beautiful, multimillion-dollar townhouse.

Let’s see what all the fuss is about. It seems that there’s more to this story than meets the eye….

On Friday, Gothamist had this fun little item:

You know what they say about people who live in Brooklyn townhouses with glass showers? Everything. Seriously, if your neighbors can see into a place where you are naked, you will be the talk of the local sewing circle.

Here is the tale of two 30-something lawyers who got married, had three kids, renovated a townhouse in Cobble Hill, and invested in keeping their marriage interesting til death do they part by installing a giant glass shower that all the neighbors could see in to. Some people are just into that shit.

This photo gives you a sense of how easily you can see into the shower:

More from Gothamist:

One of their neighbors emailed us with some details about the daring duo who are shaking up the quaint block, along with this photo of the “giant f**king glass shower!” Noting, “It looks pretty nice, and I think it can fit a party of 8 at least.” As with all nosy neighbors, our tipster asked to remain anonymous, but she doesn’t really seem to have a problem with the shower. She did tell us, however, that while the couple is “not unattractive, I wish they were hotter and famous.” Everyone’s a critic!

Alas, the allegations of unattired attorneys appear to be incorrect. We spoke to the “not unattractive” owners of the townhouse in question, who clarified some matters for us….
