Location, Location, Location.

Hands down, the best thing about living where we do currently is the close proximity to Washington Square Park, especially now that the weather’s getting nice.

If you live in New York, or even if you don’t, you might know that the park is undergoing huge renovations. Three quarters of it are fenced off and look like a complete mess, but the remaining quarter is lovely! Evidence:

People chillaxing on the lawn in various states of undress.
Pretty flowers, hoppin' band in the back belting out Dixieland style tunes
This man likes to feed squirrels. He'd named them, and they came when called. Voodoo.
This man just really likes pigeons. As did this jogger lady, who stopped to learn what it was all about.
I wanted to be best friends with this fabulous old lady and her doggy.
Eva gets acquainted.
Who says the handicapped can't have fun? Especially when listening to this awesome band, Roosevelt Dime. I watched them forever, and wished I had $20 on me to buy the CD.
They were so good, they warrant two photos.

So while our apartment probably won’t be in such a stupendous location, comparatively, we’ll still go to school at NYU. And once the construction is finished (I’ve heard by Fall, 2010), Washington Square Park will be an even better place to hang around during the day. Still, we might miss being able to walk out our front door and suddenly be there. If you want to listen to Roosevelt Dime (the band in the park), here’s a link to their myspace.

I’ve been emailing back and forth with the broker and it looks like the apartment hunt will officially begin on Saturday, April 17th! We’ll try to keep you entertained until then– stay tuned!

    Okay, maybe this is rude, but for a minute I couldn’t tell the front side from the back side of the lady with the dog. Seriously. Look at the pic again, and ignore the feet. Weird.
