It is summertime and the city feels, well, empty.  You know the super is on vacation when...

  • His assistant is walking around like the Big Man on Campus, loudly twirling his keys.
  • The single gal in 3C with a SUPER crush stops wearing makeup and heels every day.
  • You have been getting a nice footsoak in your shower because neither you nor your roommate will attempt to unclog the drain yourselves.
  • The doormen are having happy hour at 4 pm.
  • The mice are having happy hour at 4 am.


Veronica X. is a Canadian by birth, an Upper West Sider by nature, and an Upper East Sider by choice and circumstance. She has finally found an apartment big enough for her family, books, and shoes and is now in the process of renovating it.
