Well I completely agree! I live in N.Y.C on the busiest street. I have cars, buses, and a shopping center right behind my building where my windows are. I get constant dust! My bathroom is also the worst. I clean it, and a day later it is dusty. Plus I don't have a window so I figured that made it worst. I have no tips, I will actually be taking other readers tips to try plants and an air purifier.
Dealing With Big City Grime

LOVE THIS !!! So true :) couldn't have hit my point any more.. I feel great reading this:) Me and my hubby live in N.Y.C (Bronx) . and we walk everywhere. We are so close to the train which takes us 10 mins into Manhattan. We have had cars and on off, but all the shopping and everything at our fingertips it's almost a waste of money having a car. I feel more healthy/active knowing we do this instead of being lazy. My family all live in suburban areas and they barely move. They literally take the car up the block. It's so sad. I am definitely proud to be an " urban schlepper " lol.My high rise has a nice laundry room in the basement so I am lucky that I don't have to go far at least. But hey it's still a schlep up and down 6 floors. And P.S. I agree again the only time that it is a big deal is our yearly pilgrimage to Ikea (which we rent a car for ) but is still hard getting all the stuff in our high rise building. But definitely worth the pay off since our apartment looks great ! This is the new way of living and I think we are starting to outnumber people in houses or cars.. now a days :)
