All That Jazz

Despite my aversion to going outdoors until Sunday (for fear of an anvil falling on my head), Bobby dragged me out of the apartment and into the new Topshop. We didn’t buy anything, just browsed, but it did me a bit of good to forget about my ailing family members, electronics and that leaky ceiling (and subsequent lot of ruined clothes). To further our escape from reality, we indulged in delicious comfort foods: Curly’s and their pizza shop neighbor, Artichoke. Bobby ordered from Curly’s and I waited in the long line at Artichoke, and we split the two. The artichoke slice was worth the wait. I was in a great mood, after that. We also had itty bitty, bite-size cupcakes (rainbow color!) from that little place on Spring St. (I think it’s on Spring). There is an obvious connection between my happiness and colorful food. Remember Kim’s comment about not getting to the ice cream man on time? Bobby tracked down the ice cream truck, mere minutes later, and bought me a swirl cone with rainbow sprinkles…it definitely made me feel better. I love rainbow sprinkles!

  1. Ok woman from Florida. If you want to properly survive NYC, you must learn to fight back as New Yorkers inherently do. NY State happens to be very pro-tenant because there is a great deal of negligence and abuse from many landlords and superintendents. A leaky ceiling=unacceptable. You should review your contract specifications just in case. But I would call “311” and request information regarding what you can do. Passover is no excuse. If your landlord/superintendent is unavailable for religious reasons, fine. But there must be someone available in their replacement to address these semi-major concerns. Water damage to your bed and clothes is a liability the building must handle. If your building refuses to offer any help/repayment, you should report them.
