Most people ask me how I ever could have moved from Boulder, CO to New York City, and a large part of it can be traced to not having/needing a car and the foot-friendly lifestyle that follows. I am one of the lucky few who walk across town to work (15 minutes if I hit all the lights), but still, having a car in the city is almost more of a hassle than it is worth, due to traffic, parking, insurance, gas etc. But what we don't pay for in transportation expenses, we make up for in housing though!

I love the bench idea, the floating shelf by the dining room, and the floor-to-ceiling curtains.

Melissa- I love the apartment. Can you tell me more about the cabinets above the bed? I am moving into a studio with a little niche where my queen-size bed will go and have been trying to find similar cabinets (I like the lights too). Clearly the biggest concern is something that won't fall on my head. I also want to maximize storage (maybe sheets, towels, books etc), and don't want something too deep (probably 12" deep). The space I have is about 64" wide.
