We are still living in our apartment while we renovate our new house. We've lived in our apartment for about 5 years now and it's been a great place to live. People that don't live in NYC are always talking about how apartments here are so expensive and small. It's true that you don't have the space in the city that you would if you lived in the suburbs, but there are so many great things about living here- easy commute to Manhattan for work- subways run 24/7 and they come pretty frequently; tons of amazing nightlife-bars and clubs; access to some of the best restaurants in the WORLD; great delivery services- you can get food, dry cleaning and laundry, groceries, prescriptions and many, many more things delivered right to your door; cultural activities; outstanding shopping; beautiful Central and Prospect Parks; crossing paths with people from every country around the globe. This list could go on and on. You can tell I'm going to miss living here, right (wiping small tear away from my eye)?
We've been fortunate enough to live in a 3 bedroom apartment that has outdoor space (for all you suburbanites or country folk, this is a big deal. It's really hard to get outdoor space in the city). We've had many a cookout in our little patio area (yes, it's big enough to fit a grill, table and chairs) and summer night dinners with me and the hubby.
We just put our apartment on the market for sale. It's interesting to think about who may live in the place where we made a life and have many, many memories.
Before I start getting too sappy, here's a peek at our current digs.
Anyone out there want to move to Park Slope, Brooklyn?
