One of the defining characteristics about NYC, is the cramped spaces that we city-dwellers inhabit.
I recently moved to a lovely new apartment, which receives ample sunlight, passable views, and–for the first time after 2 1/2 years living in a studio–I actually have a door to my bedroom that I can shut.
It’s the small things in life that count.
And speaking of small things, my new kitchen is, well, small. My old kitchen was pretty amazing given the circumstances: it had incredible storage and counter space, almost more than I could use! The new one, not so much.
Plus, all of the appliances are kind of miniature. The stove, dishwasher, and fridge are all but a fraction of standard size. It’s pretty cute, actually. But also annoying. My cooking style tends to be to spread out over as many surfaces as possible, making a whirlwind mess. Now, though, I may have to adjust, and scale back my act a little.
However, that doesn’t mean that the meals themselves will be any less extravagant. They’ll just have to take up less space, that’s all.
