Entries in NYC (2)


NYC 2012

The last time I was in New York, or any place in the States for that matter, was almost seven years ago, so my memories of going through the immigration process were a bit distorted...

Unlike the above, my memories of New York being gloriously busy and inspiring were spot on.

I'm not going to post a journal post here, I'm far from being able to externalize the decisions I took and the clarifications that took place in my head from this trip; but I will say that it was a much needed reboot, which is still in the process and which made many things clear(er).

I always liked telling stories with pictures, so here you go: a mini slideshow.



Tiny Apartment in NYC

And when I say tiny, I mean tiny. Felice Cohen, a NY-based writer and artist, lives in this tiny 90-square-foot (27 sq. meters!!!) apartment. I get claustrophobic just thinking about it. At one point when she went into her bed, (more like sandwiched herself between the ceiling and the mattress) I gasped deeply for air just by watching that. I know New York is New York, and I would do anything to be able to be there, but really being squished in this apartment and paying $700 for it, is going a bit too far...
