|English term or phrase: pre-war seven on Fifth Avenue|
|She nods. “He overheard the conversation. I’m sorry. My apartment is quite small.”|
It is a pre-war seven on Fifth Avenue. How loud was she yelling?
|pre World War II seven-room apartment on Fifth Avenue|
Not much context, but I think there is irony in the statement "how loud was she yelling?" The person says the apartment is small but her apartment has 7 rooms so she must have been yelling for the other person to overhear the conversation. It is also ironic because Fifth Avenue in New York has very expensive and most likely well soundproofed buildings.

There are many different types of apartments in New York City and a lot of the terminology can be quite confusing to the newcomer. Apartments are initially categorized by the age of the building, either pre-war (World War II, that is) or post-war.
Aficionados of the pre-war apartment go for the high ceilings, hardwood floors, crown moldings, arched doorways and other old world charms that one usually finds in this type of apartment. Those requesting a pre-war often refer to post-war apartments as "cookie-cutter" and lacking in "charm" and therefore insist on a pre-war apartment. Pre-war buildings tend to be of sturdy construction offering thick firewalls between apartments and therefore can be quieter than the dry walled apartments found in more modern buildings. Watch out for the creaky floors, though. You can sometimes hear every step of the neighbor above in a pre-war apartment.
