Steven asks…

What do the following abbreviations mean in apartment ads?


Administrator answers:

W/d is Washer/Dryer. But FDR? I can only think of ‘Franklin Delano Roosevelt.’ And not many aparments come with one of those. The only think i can think of is maybe ‘Formal Dining Room’?

Update: According to the link I’ve added below below, it is in fact ‘Formal Dining Room.’ ‘Washer/Dryer’ is on there as well.
