There are so many ways that a space can feel “off” (color, furniture, air quality, etc, etc, etc), but the most overlooked “off-ness” is actual visual and physical balance.
If you have a home with furniture on one end of a room and nothing at the other, you are actually quite perilously off kilter. Imbalance can affect your physical sense of equilibrium, your feeling of well-being, your ability to focus…
If your floors are slanted, a frequent NYC condition, buy yourself a level and level out your furniture by propping under the legs to even things out. It will help your sense of visual balance. The bast case scenario is to fill the warped floor and re-do the flooring in a level fashion, but I know that is not always possible.
Art that is hung and tipping to one side or another will exacerbate a feeling of imbalance. Level out those photos and all of your art.
If you notice cracks in your walls or floors, check your home/building foundation professionally or bring it to management attention if you rent. An imbalanced or cracked foundation of a home can be dangerous, so if you discover this, take action immediately. You will be so happy you did!
