If I lived here, I 'd be home by now. I don't know what it is about the idea of living in a little apartment above a store that appeals to me so much. It's like an Anne Tyler novel imprinted on me at an impressionable age. I took this photo in Manhattan one time when we were staying in an apartment just down the street from this corner grocery. I wasn't sure I'd be able to do justice to the mood–rainy, dusky New York–but I'm happy with how it turned out.
And I want one of those apartments upstairs.
