boxes all over my NYC walkup apartment.

@trentodesigns

first day in the city, going out to grab an authentic #NYCbagel with #smear

Later that day...
Trent
@trentodesigns

found my binoculars in a box labled "dishes" #ihatemovers

Trent
@trentodesigns

old couple arguing, man in a trenchcoat, gay couple arguing…

Trent
@trentodesigns

oh, the young woman above the gay couple is cooling down in nothing but her sequined underthing

Trent
@trentodesigns

(should put down my binoculars, but I just cannot help myself)

The next day…
Trent
@trentodesigns

what is that guy doing behind those curtains? can't see his vignette in the daylight.

Trent
@trentodesigns

the gay couple must be antique dealers with that Eames table.

Trent
@trentodesigns

what-the-wha?!? Thought I heard a scream for a sec

Later that week…
Trent
@trentodesigns

omg, a scream of terror——for REAL——woke me from a dead sleep

Trent
@trentodesigns

just glimpsed someone in a trench coat dragging something——a body?——across the courtyard to behind the recycling and trash enclosure

Then...
Trent
@trentodesigns

guy across the street just left for night shift.

Trent
@trentodesigns

heading to his fire escape and through the open (curtained) window.

Trent
@trentodesigns

why does he have a woman’s purse handing from the bedpost? He lives by himself…

Trent
@trentodesigns

a knock at the front door!!
