The One Where Nikki Makes Out With…???May 13th, 2009
Check it out! Here’s the latest video in my Being Nikki Walking Tour of New York City!
It’s the building where Nikki/Em and Lulu live!
It’s the old Police Building on 240 Centre Street, between Broome and Grand Streets. Yes, it’s a real building, and people actually live there (including Nikki). I love it because:
a) It really was once a police building (the one where I’m pretty sure the hero works in Victoria Thompson’s romantic Gaslight Mystery series, which I love), and
b) I think it’s a pretty building, and it would be cool to live there.
But since I can’t afford it, I get to live there vicariously, through my characters….
…not that Em likes it as much as I would!
I guess it’s true she’s found out her employer has the whole place bugged and is spying on her.
But in Being Nikki her roommate throws a pretty awesome party there…
…and something super romantic happens to Em in the bedroom during that party!
(FYI, a 2-bedroom co-op like Nikki’s starts at $3,495,000.00!
The policemen in Victoria Thompson’s series would keel over if they ever heard that’s how much their old jail spaces were going for.)
