In any case, here are a few photos of the places we toured, if you'd like to see. We're leaning toward a great place on the 10th floor of a building near Fairway and the train. It has an amazing city view, and I think I can get over the awkward tiny wall in between the kitchen and the living room.
Also, dishwashers and in-unit laundry. Swoon.
