I haven't posted in a while, but I've been busy settling into my NYC residence! Gabs, Ted, Sean, my bro and I spent a long Tuesday unloading a packed Penske truck on the Upper East Side and East Village. The morning at Gabs and Ted's on the UES went smoothly, until we picked up a 160 lbs fridge in Murray Hill for my place...
Surprisingly, we (by 'we' I don't mean 'me', I mean Sean, Ted and my brother) got the fridge up five flights of stairs VERY SLOWLY; however, getting the box spring up was a whole other story.
Apparently a full size box spring doesn't fit up our staircase so our options were: 1) saw the box spring in half 2) carry the box spring up from the fire escape.
We had no saw or wire cutters, so up the fire escape it is! I don't think anyone has stepped on the fire escape in a 100 years. My brother and Ted carried a full box spring up the side of our building, only to find out it doesn't fit through the opening at the very top. Aaarrrggghh. 3 1/2 hours wasted. We decided to throw the box spring off the fire escape and trash the box spring.
Sunset from my roof deck--soooo nice.
Spiral staircase sealed the deal.
I threw Zack a bbq on his last night in the city with homemade Teri Burger patties and all.Empire's red, white and blue for labor day from our roof. Happy long weekend!
Finally I can relax.
