Fantasy Apartments

I see boarded up windows and I fantasize about renovating and moving in. This is on Bleecker Street, though. In reality it would be a noisy, horrible place to live. That block is busy, it’s also across the street from a church that has a school which means screaming kids every day, so yeah. Not ideal. But living on top of Pet Central. That would be the one convenient part.

I was just posting the other day about living on the top floor of a 5th floor walk-up. What am I going to do 10, 20, 30 years from now if I’m lucky enough to still be around? My neighbor and I were just worrying about this earlier in the week. She mentioned the dumb waiter which the landlord closed off years ago. Maybe we could repair it on our own?

I guess I just have to not think about it. It’s not like I can do anything about it for the foreseeable future.
