As the temperature drops and the leaves change in NYC we’re constantly reminded that summer is over and my favorite season, fall, has begun. These first signs of fall not only signal the fast approaching ability to layer again, but it also marks the start of back to school. They say it all goes down in the DMs but in our household it all seems to go down in the fall. I moved to NYC in this transitional season, got married during this beautiful crispness, and now we’re moving…to a new apartment. This move has been a several month long process that included wallpapering, furnishing an apartment from scratch, and purging a decade’s worth of accumulated stuff. We happened to start this move the exact same week as NYU move-ins which severely delayed our Container Store order and made Zipvans a scarcity. This coincidence got me thinking about all the different types of people that live in one city, all at such different stages in their lives, and all looking to organize it with shelves, bins, and custom closets. The way our neighborhood has changed over the years is remarkable, there are at least ten new apartment buildings that have popped up and now with the arrival of Hudson Yards, rent continues to skyrocket; having gone up almost 50% since we first arrived. They say millennials spend the majority of their lives trying to figure out how other millennials afford their lives. But seriously, how are so many of these 20-somethings, that seem to arrive in droves, able to afford this city with its rapidly increasing cost of living?
