The holiday season is the time to give — and that means tipping for New York apartment dwellers. 

Now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s time to start handing out cash to those that work at your building, according to StreetEasy, which put out a guide on how much to gift.

StreetEasy adds that that the size of the tip is based on a number of factors, including the size of the building and length of the time you’ve lived there.
