I accidentally broke a single glass window pane in my apartment. I couldn't believe how easily it broke, but now I see that it's 1/16th of an inch thick! No wonder! Landlord wants me to pay for the repair, I want ALL my windows replaced with 1/8" panes for free!

I live on the 2nd floor of an apartment. I have a busy Los Angeles intersection RIGHT outside my window. It's always loud, even with all the windows closed. From everything I've read online, 1/8" thick is standard. I think this building has the original glass from when it was built in the 20s or something. I don't think I should have to pay for the repair. I haven't approached my landlord about this yet. Advice?
