ONCE UPON A TIME AND LONG ….LONG AGO…
I owned a co-op in New York City
at the time..it was in a “on the edge” neighborhood and now…well lets just say you can see the Museum of Natural History from my street…
….No longer on the edge!!!
eventually…my life took me away from NYC and I sold the Co-Op.
…..and last week…I
became facebook friends
with the person who bought it…
We had become friends at the time, but over the years and kids, lost touch.
It was SO wonderful to reconnect.
She told me that she had lived in ….
“our” apartment until JUST last year…when she finally sold it and moved
down the block…
Here are some of the online photos…
|the layout…it was so sweet, I LOVED it!|
here are some photos, from the real estate listing.
It appears from the photos that it might have been empty and that
the photos were
funny concept…any of you know more about this?
anyhoo…The SWEET 500 SQ foot apartment was so wonderful.
I loved the brick wall and the fireplace and I am glad it was never painted.
though it looks as if she added built ins and some bookcases….nice touch….
I loved the parquet floors that kind of clicked when you walked across them…the neighbor, a writer who worked from home, used to complain about my cats playing all day…oh well.
(or ARE THE REALLY any conicidences?)
JUST LAST WEEK….
While digging through family photos….
I found these photos of me in THE APARTMENT
Now let me remind you
in the mid to late 1980’s…
COUNTRY was KING
YES! Hard to believe with all that Madonna
and Bruce Springsteen running around
That Shumacher prints and FOLK ART were as popular as
Chevron and Industrial Chic and Jonathan Adler are now.
In fact, MY TWO favorite stores on Madison Avenue
were the “AMERICAN FOLK ART” store
and an incredible Quilt store.
and of course…
DO NOT LAUGH!
This print, which I still have, I bought out of the back of Country Living Magazine…yes, you could
Yes!!! You could buy things out of magazines…furniture art and in this case…signed prints of PAINTINGS!!!!.
….so there you have it…I guess I have gone full circle…
I started off in an Old 1880’s building and now
I live in a house…
built in 1880!!!
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST PLACE LIKE???
