Interiors: New York City Apartment

Over the last decade, I have made countless trips to Manhattan. I feel so lucky to have visited the city’s attractions, to live like a real person, and to have explored so many different parts of of this truly inspiring city. Sure, I could do without the crowds and the grime, but Manhattan is like no other. The city is so energetic, and New Yorkers just love their city. My regular trips to NYC, however, have come to an end now that my family is moving out of the city. I had my last visit over Easter weekend and I had to say goodbye to my family’s gorgeous apartment in the heart of Manhattan. They basically gutted the place (awesome before & after photos!) when they bought it. The 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment is white and bright and spacious enough (yes, really) for a family of 6 +1 (me, yes, it’s true). It was truly wonderful to live (I sometimes feel as though I lived there, too) 8 short blocks from Central Park (that’s a 5-8 minute walk, depending on how much jay-walking you do), about the same distance to Times Square, Lincoln Centre, and Rockefeller Centre. Would you like to have a look at their beautiful home?

My sister and brother-in-law have put up their apartment for lease, and I know that the future tenants are going to fall in love with the apartment, the building, the doormen, and the location as my whole family has!

p.s. I couldn’t post the second bedroom because it’s a colourful kid’s room. 🙂
