The building I live in is split into two halves. Recently they replaced the elevators during staggered months. They had chairs on every floor for elderly people who needed to take a break after using stairs and they even hired someone to help people carry stuff upstairs. I was in the elevator with one of my neighbors recently and found out that the entire month we had the option of taking the other elevator up to the top floor, walking to the roof and from there to our side of the building where we could walk down.

I love having roof access. I mean, I’ve never lived in a building which had roof access but I’ve always coveted it in my entire time living in New York. I always imagined using the space to do some kung fu practice or just chill out and enjoy the view. Now I found out that I had it for a month and now it’s gone. Dammit.
