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:
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!
