Curtains For Us

Josie and I live on the second floor of a high-rise. We're close to the Hudson River, but apparently not close enough as a developer is building a new high rise between us and the West Side Highway. If I owned, I'd be pissed, but I rent, so I don't care...except for one thing.

We don't have curtains. Why? We're lazy and we keep thinking we'll move. Problem is that construction workers are now working from 7-4 weekdays this close to our window...




Now, it's not so bad now as they are still working on ground floor kinda stuff. They only see us if we are standing by our window. The only people who can see us are working the crane...



Point being, within a couple of months, we are going to either buy curtains, or sublease our place for a pretty penny to a family of exhibitionists.

Rock On,

Aitch

Funny, I was going to suggest exhibitionism. If you could figure a way to charge a fee, you might even be able to earn enough to live rent-free!

You could pick up an inexpensive can of white paint and put a coat on the glass in the windows. You will still get light but have nice privacy. If you want to see out, just take a razor-blade scraper and clear a little spot. then you can just put a yellow sticky note over that.

Inexpensive and built to stay that way.

If you hold up signs to your apartment window, will the iron workers spraypaint your name on the steel beams? Rickey recommends looking into this.

Cheers!
