Events, happenings, and places around the area.

I am now a Brooklyn Resident

Ink hit paper Friday and now I finally have an apartment in New York City. I’ve been here for a few months and have looked, and looked for an apartment. It’s not an easy task. There were trials and tribulations along the way, but I finally found a place I really like. It’s in Carroll Gardens in Brooklyn, which was my first choice due to the proximity to a) the Subway b) my friends c) the great neighborhood near by.

It’s a one bedroom, not huge but not tiny either, and I have a small office where I can keep my computer. I move in May 1st (after it gets new paint, doors, windows, etc) at which point I’ll post up some pictures. After I’m in, expect blog posts to become much more frequent.

Here’s an animated 360° Google Maps street view of my block:

I’m Moving to New York City

IAC Building

So, it’s finally happened. I’ve got a job and I’m moving to NYC. I’ve been talking about this for a long time and I can’t express how excited I am to finally be doing it.

The Job

I’ll be working for IAC in the awesome Frank Gehry designed building in Chelsea. My job title is “front end developer” and I start on December 10th.

The Move

My last day at my current job is December 5th, a Wednesday. That gives me just four days to pack up in Rochester, move everything I own into storage, and show up for my first day of work the following Monday. I had once planned to take some time off but that is not going to happen even a little bit.

The Building

One of the coolest things about my new job will be working in the Frank Gehry designed IAC building. It’s been written about in a few places and is the subject of many pictures. For more coolness check out the building’s web site. How many buildings have their own web sites?

The Future

Since my day-to-day life is about to change drastically, AllMyLiesAreWishes is going to change as well. I’ll be using this blog to post random cool things I find and talk about restaurants and TV like always but I’ll also be chronicling all my fun adventures in the city. Stay tuned. I’ve got some cool stuff in the works.
