NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Imagine looking out of your window one morning and seeing your neighbors taking a shower.

That’s exactly what could happen in Brooklyn after one couple built their bath in a way that leaves little to the imagination.

Call it a shower with a view, CBS 2’s Steve Langford reported Friday.

Beyond the exposed brick walls of the beautiful Cobble Hill homes, one newly renovated townhouse features a very exposed glass shower.

The view from the back of the townhouse shows a huge glass enclosed shower area overlooking the backyard, the apparent absence of curtains of great interest to neighbors who have a full frontal view of this home improvement.  Langford tried to reach the owners by phone on Friday, but one quickly hung up.

It appears their “open door” policy clearly did not extend to the media.

Neighbors said there was plenty of discussion when the owners wanted to build an extension on their home in the back, but few remember hearing anything about an exposed glass shower.

Some locals — at least those willing to talk — seemed shocked by the shower show.

“I don’t think it’s appropriate, especially in a neighborhood where a lot of kids go to school just down the block,” one person said.

“I feel bad for the neighbors, just because depending on who lives there you know?” another said.

“I certainly wouldn’t mind having a look depending on who’s taking a shower,” another added.

It’s not clear if the owners have moved in yet. An online illustration of the renovation shows the shower area windows obscured.
