The next big project will be the
renovation of the apartment my wife Jerry and I puchased last year.
Fortunately the original molding and wood flooring are intact and in
good shape, but buried under paint, carpet and tile. Peeling back the
layers was the first step. Next is to redo the kitchen and bathroom
which haven't been touched since the '50s (and it shows).
The apartment is in Jackson
Heights in Queens, NYC- a historic district and one of the most
ethnically diverse neighborhoods
in the country. Needless to say, the area is intersting architecturally
and there is no shortage of great restaraunts.
