The Way We Live
There are too many images out there in the media that depict NYC as a hip, sexy, modern, sterile, lofty place. The reality is that we are all living in cramped quarters because we love our families and our books. So, the following is a new series on this blog of photographs of the way we REALLY live here in NYC. The first subject: The Stewart Family.
The Stewarts live in a 2 bedroom apartment with 3 kids. I find the matriarch of this family to be such a great mother and housekeeper and she is very creative with the space they have. Case in point: Their Master Bedroom has no closets, so she has put up racks in their bedroom. Also, in order to create a third "bedroom" she has moved her dresser drawers out from the wall, and snuck a pack and play in there. She even put wallpaper on the back of her dresser so that the baby would have something to look at, and a giant lady bug on the wall to go with it.
The 3 kids sleep together in the second bedroom where they manage to fit in bunk beds, a crib and a set of dressers. They are totally living the New York Life...make way for baby #4! (this is not an announcement)
