    Default A dream home undone by divorce

    Leslie Williams lives in the kind of place many New Yorkers dream about, the sort of impossibly beautiful apartment movie directors cast as a home for "arty" characters.


    For a time, it was Ms. Williams's dream home. She and her husband, both of whom are in television production, moved in two days before Christmas in 2007 after a renovation, at the time not yet complete, that had already taken about a year.


    But soon after moving in to their finished apartment, the couple was getting a divorce.
    Three years ago, Ms. Williams and her husband found this "hippy haven" on North Moore Street.











    "It was nice to be here once it was all fixed up," she admitted. "A tiny piece of me wishes I could stay here forever. But as my mother said, 'A house is only four walls. You can't tear your heart out.'"

    I'd get a divorce just to get out of there.

    That's the most depressing place I've ever seen that was actually inhabited. No wonder they're getting a divorce.

    Act normal and the crowd will accept you. Act deranged and they will make you their leader

    Great. Everyone hates this, but this has to end up being one I pretty much like. Figures.

    But Raggedy Anne reminds me somehow of Chucky and evil, just sitting there, so out the window she would go.
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    ^^Me three! I'm not wild about the sofas, but I love the way they used space.
