the BEST apartment i've ever lived in was this type of situation. the walls of the hallways were graffitti-ed and trash regularly collected on the stairs (torn up scratch tickets, empty Rockstar cans, etc.). it always surprised my friends who would walk up the stairs wondering what kind of place i was living, to emerge into my gorgeous apartment. (i sort of loved this effect, because they would always look around a little wide-eyed.)
Nice Apartment, Nasty Building: Is it Worth It?
|8/11/11 2:44 PM|
Moving cross-country from NYC to Seattle, my terrible downstairs neighbor stole my laptop computer out of my bag as it sat for my husband to put it in the truck (I was carrying other things down the 3 flights of stairs.) I didn't notice the weight difference because I had been carrying heavy things all day, and it wasn't until the next morning in Pennsylvania that I opened my bag and found it missing. I know it was him and I know the moment it happened. I lost a lot of photos and cried all day. I was tempted to drive all the way back to file a police report, but we were on a schedule, and there were 5-6 more days of driving ahead of us.

it does somewhat limit your options when furniture shopping, i've found. i made the mistake of buying a chair without thinking about the seat height and it was completely ridiculous! now we have to be very careful about it when we add furniture to our living room....

my husband and I bought the Andre from R&B one year ago. we've gotten lots of compliments on it, but i have to say that it isn't very comfortable for just vegging out in front of the tv (low back and fairly short seat make it hard to sink into the sofa) and i have regretted style over comfort purely for that reason. also, after a year the cushions are significantly less plump than they were new and one of the buttons on the back has popped off. it's a gorgeous couch, but i think i would have been happier with my second pick, which was the delancy.
