Well, I’m staying in NYC!!!  I’ve found a flat in a building in the hip Lower East Side that has an elevator, dishwasher, laundry in the basement and other sorts of comfortable amenities.  See for yourself:

Living room:

Kitchen, which is opposite the window wall in the living room so it’s all one big open, happy place:

(Yes, that IS Eric.  Back for another visit.  Filling out the application.)

Bathroom:

Bedroom, which we’re dividing into two rooms with a wall (VERY popular option in NYC.  This place was listed as a “one bedroom convertible two”):

And here’s a video tour to put together all the pieces:

(Coming soon…)

A nearby, cute street:

So after we signed the lease and paid a small fortune of first/last month’s rent plus deposit, we drove Eric’s dad’s station wagon up to our old house (sigh) in Providence, where ALL of our stuff is stored in the basement.  Here’s what our stack of goods looks like (can you spy Eric rooting around for things?):

We found a PERFECT sofa option in the “As Is” section (my favorite part of the whole store) at Ikea in New Haven on our drive up to Providence.  Only $350 for a L-shaped sofa that converts to a bed!  We *begged* the clerk to hold it for us for less than 24 hours, when we’d be driving back through New Haven with a U-Haul, but they refused.  So we just hoped that no one would buy it in the meantime.  Alas, someone did.  So I still need a sofa, but otherwise, my place is all set.  Just need to unpack it all!

COME VISIT!!!!
