I told you all about the area we were moving into in the last post, but you guys have been waiting all summer long to see our home for the next three years. So without further ado, I present to you our NYC digs:
Ain't it beautiferous???
We've got almost 600 square feet of space, a whopping 50% more space than our itty bitty Philly APT. I know what you're all thinking...aren't NYC apartments supposed to be smaller than everywhere else? Well, like I mentioned in the last post, we were incredibly lucky to get housing through Columbia University and even luckier to be assigned this big and beautiful apartment! (The happy dances haven't stopped for months.) While it isn't cheap, it's definitely a lot less than you would normally pay in NYC for an apartment like this, and we're very thankful that we have the option to stay for all three years without moving out during summers or switching apartments.
The floor plan isn't 100% accurate, but it gives you a pretty good idea of the space we're working with.
You know what would give you an even better idea of the space we're working with?
A VIDEO TOUR!!!!!
Woohoo! Now you've all been inside our apartment. What did you think??? Let me just say right now that you are not allowed to comment on my acting skills, the random boxes lying everywhere, or the fact that I stole the entire closet in the bedroom. Just kidding, tell me everything. Did you love it? (Or, gasp....did you hate it?) Is it bigger than you thought? How awesome is our couch? What's the first thing you would change? (I already know my answer....and it has to do with paint.) Can't wait to hear your thoughts!
