As of Saturday evening, I’ve been connected to the real world! I’m ashamed to say that life without the internet was not easy … Especially, when I was stuck for a couple of days waiting for maintenance in my new apartment and had nothing more than some blank walls, my phone, and some legal books to keep me company.
Fortunately, I was able to end the week with a relaxing outdoor yoga class in the middle of the Meat Packing District.
My New York apartment search was an experience like no other. I started out with a broker who showed me apartments $1400 above my price range, and then refused to work with me, since on my tight schedule I wanted to work with more than one broker. After an email on the quality time we spent together and how I was eliminating him from finding my new home by working with others … I was a little confused as to whether or not I unassumingly entered into a bad relationship after just a few hours. Oh well, I had other brokers … I had another broker who only wanted me to live in the Upper West Side because she thought I could be her new best friend. I was starting to question if anybody worked in this City! Luckily, I had my broker Jessica, who showed me the Upper East Side, Downtown, and Brooklyn. I ended up settling with a great new apartment Downtown 🙂
I’m slowly settling in and trying to figure out the best way to organize my small studio apartment. If anyone has suggestions please let me know.
And just for fun, a photo of a random on the A train (I couldn’t resist). Adidas leopard print hi-tops with a tail!
