Wrong Kind of Penthouse

I was sitting on an airplane recently, my dad on one side and a stranger on the other. I had brought old copies of the New York Times Sunday Magazine to read and (finally) do the crossword puzzles. I was having a bit of trouble with one, so I decided to ask my dad for his help. Everything went swimmingly (he knew 1970's actors and car models) until I got to this clue:

Penthouse feature (4 letters)

My dad turns to me and says, "Well, 'Forum' is too long, isn't it?"

The guy on the other side of me laughed out loud. (Turns out the correct answer was 'view'.)
