Deal Done @ 10:46 pm

So
after over two months of struggling to find a place in NYC
i got one..

Last thursday
the broker i've been working with wanted to show me one (that ended up being gone already when we got there)
but gave me a list of all available
and one jumped out at me
which wasn't a very nice apartment..
but below it i saw something that made me curious
so it was more of a whim..
a bit of an adventure...

and it was "Perfect, Just Perfect."

the building is somewhere between Inwood and Washington Heights
pretty close to either the A or the 1 subway at 190th street

it has two addresses
no square rooms
and a view out over the city with forests in view
... and a tree right outside my window!

out the front door i'll use most
there are apartment houses on stilts
and something that looks like a midaevil wall

... i've already got plenty of ideas

so i took pictures of it
fresh out of the box

i'll add more photos to that set as i move into it


i'm at this place i've been house sitting for another week
then i'll be down in the west village for two weeks

all this time collecting stuff to make my own place livable..

then i'll be heading down to TN the last week of September for the Gathering
and to get all my stuff
and bring it up here!

so i'll be moved in by October.

i am so happy to have a pot to plant myself in for a while

... more to come, of course.

And you can see the Cloisters out your bathroom window! A beautiful and tranquil part of the island to set yourself down; congratulations, my friend....

What a wonderful place! Glad to see you stopping for a bit...and look forward to meeting you next time I'm in town.

You've been on my mind a lot these last couple months, and I hoped you were okay.
