"My Home For the Past 7 Years"

We totally lucked out when we chose Nathan Place, seven years ago! It was our first home and we were kind of in a rush... moving down from an apartment in New York City, the corporate housing fund was just about dried up... We looked in Arlington, Reston Falls Church, Fairfax... thinking we needed to be close to the city.. but as we ventured westward everything seemed so big and so lush. We went for it!

Little did we know that seven years later it would be almost impossible to pry us away from our little house! We have raised 2 children on Nathan Place and I can honestly say that I don't think there could have been a more ideal place to do it. What lovely neighbors!

"First Impressions After 1 Day Living Here"

My Street (more appropriately, the few square blocks surrounding my apartment between Lexington Ave and 3rd Ave on 38th Street) seems pretty cool after 1 night of living here. The traffic is bearable (even though we are very close to a main artery out of the city) and the noise didn't really get to me last night while sleeping on the 8th floor of a street-side apartment. I had a nice dinner at the Rio Grande (mexican) and a nice 8 minute commute to my office in the morning. There was a man standing on a roof last night screaming as if he had been stabbed, but it turned out he was just happy to be in New York, as am I.
