What merits more prayer than a large city?
 
Another expression of the Tower Hermits could be taking up residence in inner-city apartment houses.
 
I would advise, however, not to take apartments below the second floor, or above the tenth.
 
The first would be for technical reasons--how can one be a Tower Hermit if they lived on the ground floor?  The only exception I can think of would be a seriously handicapped person who needed a ground floor apartment.
 
The second is for safety reasons--fire department ladders and buckets usually go no higher than the tenth floor.
