My New York Apartment

Dear friends and family,

As you know, I’ve been searching for my dream New York apartment ever since I sold my East Village home in Vancouver in April. I have finally found my New York home, in the West Village of lower Manhattan. It took a few false starts and I learned a lot about New York real estate along the way. You would not believe!

But the search has paid off, and I hope you will bear with me as I show you all the details of this fantastic space that I love. Lots of photos follow, and I thought it would be easiest if you can just scroll down through them, rather than using slide shows. So here goes:

Preparing the space: hanging art, assembling furniture! Come up to the 6th floor in the elevator. Turn left, no, I said left!

The entry way–an actual foyer!

Down the hallway–an actual hallway! (My former romantic attic studio in a brownstone did not have these features, hence my excitement.)

The kitchen, with black cabinets and counter-top and mirrored back-splash:

This last one is from the kitchen looking back down the hallway, and you can see my little Christmas tree.

Next up: another hallway into the bathroom and bedroom! Doors closed, and then open.

Another look around the kitchen with close-ups of details:

And now into the bedroom!

   Leaving the bedroom, turn right to go down the hallway to the bathroom. No, I said right!

I couldn’t resist getting a little arty there.

Now for the dining area, by the big double-window:

And the pièce de résistance, the living room!

Dear David Bowie!

Now converting my desk area for work:

And a few views out the windows:

My apartment is on the top floor, overlooking a courtyard area between W. 11th Street and W. 12th Street. It’s nice to see some green out the window.

Interior artwork on David Bowie’s album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Spooky!

Thanks for coming on this tour with me! I hope you come visit me in New York soon.
