The Bronx

Well I (Dominic) arrived. After a longer than expected flight from Seattle to New York I made it to our apartment in the Bronx. Bedford Park more specifically, though I imagine that means little to any readers of this blog. The pod arrived two days later and I’m happy to report that, due to Sarah’s awesome packing skills there wasn’t a broken dish or otherwise ruined item in the move. I would definitely recommend the moving pod as a means of moving; especially across country.

My first few days were spent unpacking and attending the Fordham graduate school orientation. It was nice to finally meet my future classmates and learn more about Fordham’s history. The campus is a beautiful oasis in the middle of the teeming city surrounding it. This will definitely be a huge change from our lives in Seattle, and it is sure to be interesting. I’ve never lived in a city this large that bustles at such a fast pace.

I’m sure we’ll have plenty to report on in the next few months as we settle into life in New York.

Welcome to the Bronx. I am an older woman living in the Amalgamated Houses, not far from you. I also have relatives in Seattle, so I am familiar with that city. BoogieDowner is a blog written by a couple who live in Bedford Park.

Glad to hear you arrived and are getting settled. I'm sure Sarah will finish settling things in when she arrives in the morning. Welcome to the east coast. Maybe Sarah's mission there can be to get those people to relax??!! Then again, she will probably fit right in with the pace she goes at. That's amazing that you didn't have any broken dishes. We had something break with every move we did and supposed "professionals" move us. Maybe Sarah is missing her calling. If we could only get all of our stuff in a POD I would be thrilled. That will NEVER happen again. Looking forward to visiting you in NYC.
