I would appreciate some help with an issue I am having with a potted palm I have in my apartment in New York City. I got the plant about a year ago and it seemed to thrive. Since the end of the summer its leaves have been yellowing and browning. Many of the leave tips are brown and some of the leaves are going totally yellow and brown. I have attached a photo as a reference.

I have tried more water and less. Misting and letting it dry out completely. Nothing seems to work. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Is it just the oldest leaves? As long as new leaves are coming in at the same pace, that's normal for palms. Part of the process of the trunk aging & turning woody. If that doesn't apply to the kind you have, which is not one of the palms that I also have, I'm sure somebody will point that out to us. Also seems to be on the floor, where the coldest air in the room is, like the Aglaonema in your other pic. Tropical plants don't abide cold roots well, especially if soggy @ the time.
