A man a floor plan a canal prool Fanama - I say "theoretically" because we used this floor plan software (available at floorplanner.com) to map the entire apartment with all furnishings to scale in a flat 2-dimensional blueprint. Then, with the click of a mouse, a 3D walk-through is visible letting you virtually tour your new layout without moving anything. I recommend it.
Hopefully, live journal, you can come visit and do an actual walk through of the place once the furniture arrives. In the meantime, check out these 3D renderings....
Here are some theories as to why NYC is the city that doesn't sleep...
1. Loud cars and trucks regardless of what time it is
2. Old creaky floors
3. Heaters and refrigerators that make more weird noises than Michael Winslow (guy from Police Academy)
4. Cramped living quarters make having a big bed impossible so if you're tossing and turning, so is your partner
5. Everything is open all hours of the night
It's probably one or all of the above. :)
Anyway, I happy to call it home now.
