We are moving!
Just to the building behind us. It will have 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, and be a little closer to the subway, grocery store and playground.
I still can't believe it. When Zoe was born, we were told it would take 5-6 years to get a 3-bedroom apartment. It only took 4 years. The closing is on December 15, and then we will move in January.
I'll miss our big living room (the new one is a little smaller, but has a bigger window) and our Empire State Building views (the new apartment is on a lower floor). The new apartment has views of trees from most windows, pretty in the fall. Also, the kitchen is bigger, though we will need to do something about the floor. And the 2nd bathroom...is fabulous.
I was relieved to find out that the previous tenant did not die; she went to a nursing home. She had lived in this apartment since 1962.
