(with the whole story happening on Twitter and in the LongShorts app)
it's already 85 degrees F in this place #heatwave #openingwindows
boxes all over my NYC walkup apartment.
first day in the city, going out to grab an authentic #NYCbagel with #smear
found my binoculars in a box labled "dishes" #ihatemovers
old couple arguing, man in a trenchcoat, gay couple arguing…
oh, the young woman above the gay couple is cooling down in nothing but her sequined underthing
(should put down my binoculars, but I just cannot help myself)
what is that guy doing behind those curtains? can't see his vignette in the daylight.
the gay couple must be antique dealers with that Eames table.
what-the-wha?!? Thought I heard a scream for a sec
omg, a scream of terror——for REAL——woke me from a dead sleep
just glimpsed someone in a trench coat dragging something——a body?——across the courtyard to behind the recycling and trash enclosure
guy across the street just left for night shift.
heading to his fire escape and through the open (curtained) window.
why does he have a woman’s purse handing from the bedpost? He lives by himself…
a knock at the front door!!
