As Ece mentioned in her post, we lived in a little place called The Ranch. As the name suggests, its one of those eccentric places that only exists in NY.
After spending 3 months in NYC, the lease at my first place (a room with a lovely view of the opposing building that I rented from a lady who looked astounding like my mother. I know, it was so odd!) So back I went to Criag’s List, to hopefully find a sublet with someone who scored at least a 5 or below on the creeper scale.
Enter Craig’s List Ad 437895.
Visiting the place with a friend, I loved the co-op feel of the place and decided to move in on the spot. It might also have helped that they gave me ice cream and chocolate syrup to welcome me. I’m such a sucker for ice cream.
When I moved in, we had 3 other roommates: a Greek artist, a Korean exchange student and an editor at BroBible.com. Just a snippet of our eclectic gang.
The Ranch rapidly became home, and we went through a multitude of adventures: surviving both Hurricanes Irene and Sandy, introducing Bubble Tea to a Frenchman, arguing the origins of Tzatziki, hunting down an organic turkey for our Italian Thanksgiving chef, among others.
This blog is a reflection of the people that we are, a concept board of everything that we’re interested in. You’ll see us wax lyrical about travel, book reviews, cool projects that we think are worth looking at, etc. So make with it what you will and leave us comments and reviews.
OFF WE GO!
