Update: 12:51 p.m.  Take a deep breath. New York has found out that there will be privacy glass installed and that the shower still hasn't been used (and won't be used until that glass has been installed). Nothing to see here folks. 

Despite The New York Times's and Lena Dunham's best efforts to make Brooklyn sound like a veritable orgy of tattooed nudity and artisanal burgers, there are times when the borough lets those fantasies down and reminds you that it can still feel like a suburb when it wants to. Case in point: the Cobble Hill yuppies who are totally offended by a kinky glass shower installed by a local couple, who obviously make themselves visible — in the buff, of course — during their daily ablutions. 

"I don't think it's appropriate, especially in a neighborhood where a lot of kids go to school just down the block," a neighbor told CBS New York. It's unclear, however, whether or not the kids going to school have backyard access and views of the shower. Another neighbor added: "I feel bad for the neighbors, just because depending on who lives there you know?" 

As CBS New York and the Daily Mail report, it's unclear if the much-maligned owners have moved in yet. And if no one has moved in, how can anyone be offended by what could potentially take place in that shower? In other words, can a shower be offensive if nothing has taken place there (yet)? And if the owners haven't moved in, is it possible that the shower isn't even finished yet? After all, the rendering from the design firm supposedly responsible for this pièce de résistance shows a more modest version: 

The Daily Mail reports that journalist Julie Scelfo and her husband are the proud owners of the lewd shower. In what is surely an utter coincidence, back in 2009, Scelfo wrote an article for The New York Times titled "Window Watchers in a City of Strangers." That story, referencing Hitchcock's Rear Window, is about the anonymous connections New Yorkers (and Brooklynites) have with their neighbors—which is sometimes forged by, you guessed it, what people see from their windows.
