New York is the most exciting city in the world.
That’s not just my opinion. A lot of people say that. The city is also very welcoming and hospitable, which is not a commonly held view among humans, but I think millions of other creatures would agree.
And by “other creatures” I mean rodents, cockroaches, ants, flies, bees, bedbugs and pigeons.
And yet there is also an air of acceptance. If you live in New York City this assortment of two, four, six and eight legged strangers will share it with you, whether you want to share it with them or not. Which may come as a surprise to the owner of the city’s highest priced (and still unbuilt) piece of residential real estate.
What do you do when you see the first cockroach skitter across the kitchen floor in your 90 million dollar sky palace? Even if the creature is dressed for dinner in top hat, white tie and tails, the sight of it gives one pause. And if the intruder happens to be a rodent, the sight of it gives one paws – “How much money would it take to be totally alone?”
More than you have, apparently. Only in New York.
What else lives in your house?
