pain and suffering

a few of you have been curious: how has our year of moving from one temporary living suitation to another been working out so far?

Well, most of the housing options I found in our price range for this summer were about 700 sq ft of space on the 8th level of some unairconditioned building that most likely had a bakery or pizzeria (or some other oven-dependent business) on the ground floor.

And then there is the back patio:

with additional shared patio beyond that:


At this point you might be thinking to yourself, "Wait. But I thought that square footage in New York was notoriously limited!" Well, you are right, it is.

I guess because we stole it all.

I'm so glad you found it! We loved our visit, AND the air conditioning, AND our own room and bathroom!!
