After a month of being in New York I am finally posting about our tiny studio apartment. We have downsized by just a couple hundred square feet. No big deal, right? Let’s just say Tyson and I have never been closer. Our apartment in Salt Lake was 720 square feet and our apartment here in New York is 500 square feet. Not only is it smaller in size, but almost three times the price. $$$
In reality we found the cutest apartment that is in the heart of Manhattan, NY. The best part is that we started from new and decorated until our hearts were content.
First is our bathroom, reminding you to “Be Awesome today”.
We had to get creative with the kitchen, because there is not a lot of room for storage.
Luckily we have a bar, because a table just won’t fit.
Our dresser doubles as a T.V. stand.
We separated the studio with this bookshelf, creating it into almost what feels like two rooms. (almost)
On the other side of the bookshelf is our “bedroom”.
Last but not least is the beautiful view from our only window. Welcome to downtown New York.
This weekend was perfect in every way!! I had Tyson to myself ALL weekend, which is a rare occurrence. First he took me shopping. We went to, what seems like, every store in SOHO (Tyson is actually super fun to shop with). Then we got my favorite snack, popcorn, from the Brooklyn Popcorn truck. Jalapeno was our flavor of choice and it was de-lish! Our popcorn held us over as we took a walk across the Brooklyn bridge and got the most amazing pizza at Ignazio’s Pizza for a late lunch.
For dinner Tyson took me to Black Tap. We waited in line for two whole hours for this amazing milkshake. This one is the cotton candy milkshake, which is a strawberry shake topped with cotton candy, sixlets, and suckers. $15 bucks for this bad boy, but worth every penny. The hamburgers were just as great, but that could have been because we were starving.
Tips for going to the Black Tap:
- It is a small bar that only holds 14 people, so go with a party of two if possible.
- If you are going just for their famous shakes, try and get in the standing room.
- You will also get in quicker if it is just for a shake, no meal.
- Tyson say’s “Go eary!!”, we learned our lesson.
