Help Me Move to Manhattan

I haven’t yet begun a full-scale social media campaign, but I am posting here on my most personal of blogs that I am officially looking to move to Manhattan. Actually, it’s not that “official”, I just am. If you are reading this, whoever you are, please connect me to any family or friends who may have an apartment for me.

I am looking solo (studios and 1-bedrooms, probably way uptown), as well as for roommates who would be interested in a mutual apartment hunt. I’ll also consider a “roommate needed” situation, where I join an existing domestic situation, but that’s less likely. Still, I’ll hear it out.

Looking to spend less than $1500/month for my share. Any more than this simply isn’t responsible.

Currently I’m month-to-month in my apartment so I can move as soon as I find something (plus a few days to pack my shit up, of course. Not like I’m on the run from the law.)

You’re probably asking three questions. The first: “Can you afford Manhattan?” No. Not really. No one moves to Manhattan because it’s a bargain. Second: “What’s wrong with Jersey City?” Nothing, it’s just dull. It’s where you go once you and your long-term girlfriend have had enough of Manhattan drama. Third: “What’s wrong with Brooklyn?” I used to live in Brooklyn. It’s more expensive than JC, and since I don’t work there or play there, I really don’t want to be there. The only neighbourhood I’m familiar with is Williamsburg and I don’t wanna move back there.

Andrew narrowly avoids plummeting to his death

Andrew narrowly avoids plummeting to his death

A strange architectural quirk of our new space is that there is no obvious way to adjust the blinds or open/close the windows. While we were looking for a ladder, Andrew dusted off his gymnastics skills and hopped up onto the ledge, shimmied across, and somehow didn't fall. Also managed to open the blinds. Typical work day.

Zorro!

Zorro!

Laura is dog-sitting for this reddish pup, aptly named Zorro (which means Fox in Spanish). Sadly, he doesn't seem to know his name which is a major drawback for any dog.

Bridget and the Squares

Bridget and the Squares

At the Pine Box Theatre, I think it's called, in Bushwick. The place was lousy with hipsters, as expected.

With Sally Hogshead

With Sally Hogshead

In New York for long-overdue meeting with my long-time design hero, and current client, Sally Hogshead. The setting is Le Parker Meridien hotel in midtown, which is jammed with quirky architectural bits and bobs. Pictured here, random cathedral arches.

Girl walk all day and night

Girl walk all day and night

I don't often find myself at a church on a Sunday night, but I headed over to St. Paul's Chapel for a screening of Girl Walk // All Day, the feel-good movie of the year. To summarise, it's the story of a people dancing through the streets of NYC for a day. You can't watch it and not dance.

Check out photos from the event here (look for me in all-black): www.flickr.com/photos/girlwalkallday/sets/72157629100655847/
