Life List Day 89 - See What's at the Top of the Stairs

Talk about a failure of curiosity - I live in a building of four townhouse-style apartments, with this staircase separating the front and back apartments:



Even though I've passed the staircase (that leads up to a UNLOCKED GATE no less!) literally hundreds of times, it's never occurred to me to see what's up there. Or maybe I just assumed it must be off limits. Or not be very interesting or else the landlady would have TOLD me it's off limits.

After living here for nearly a year - it finally dawned it me that it might be something good. For all I knew, there could be a jacuzzi up there. And a pool. With cabana boys.

So today, in honor of my life list, I tiptoed up there. This is it:



OK, not so much an LA-style paradise as a NY-style roof where, say, people might sit on their lunch hours trying to grab a tan. At least now I know!

Besides, it's sturdy enough to bring my own inflatable pool, and for that matter, private enough to bring my own cabana boy (preferably not of the inflatable variety).

Don't knock NYC roofs ... I grew up in NYC and many of my happiest moments occurred on my roof.
