The boyfriend and I have our first NYC apartment! I’ve been subletting since I moved here and even though it was nice place to set up base for a few months, it definitely lacked a personal touch. So when it came to finding an apartment of our own, we wanted to make sure that it was a place we could call home for the next year or two.
Well I scoured the city, trolled Craigslist, and scoped out a dozen apartments during my search. And just when I started to lose hope, I found this gem: a fourth floor walk-up in Gramercy with new renovations, great living space, and two amazing closets (well … for NYC). From the search, to the application, to the fees and deposits — it’s been an exhausting process. But now that’s behind us, we get to focus on making this apartment and this city our home!
