The revolving doors of the entrance lead you into this fairly nice area with a tony fountain to your left and a small waiting area to your right with plush couches and overstuffed chairs. Straight ahead is a long, wooden desk with a security gaurd, watching the surviellence cameras with great dilligence. There's a long carpet leading towards the elevator where a man waits to help you with anything you might need.

Basement The basement, for all of its yellowed, stuffy, eerie qualities is, alas, a necessity. Pipes behind elderly white ceiling tiles emit a constant drip, sounding from any number of them; there are a number of water stains pooled on the panels - and certain spots of the ceiling creak under even the light pressure of those walking about on the first floor above. Most of the overhead panels of light seem to work, even though they are dim. Flickering on and off, teetering on the edge of life. Half of the room is cut off by a chain link fence to keep people away from the janitorial supplies. In those areas that are open to the general public, however, there are four identical washing machines. On the opposite wall from these, rest only three driers. One is considerably larger than the other two and gets the job done in half the time, however it seems to be perpetually out of order. Colored print-outs line the walls explaining the general rules and etiquette of the laundry room as well as other alerts from the building's super and landlord. b
Rooftop Beacon's rooftop is what one might expect it to look like; flat, it offers a nice get-away for those wishing to smoke outside of their apartments or look up to the light-polluted sky. The wind is a bit strong up here on certain days - but the gravel population that makes up the flooring seems to remain quite intact. A few boxy domes of glass protrude here and there - skylights for some of those lucky enough to live on the top floor. The small closet-sized entrance that opens into the staircase back into the building sits beside a large, metal shed, which is an area for whatever the janitors or residents care to keep inside. Two parallel plastic clothes lines span off of these constructs, attaching to poles near the edge of the roof. This, naturally, is to accommodate those who wish to air dry their garments or perhaps who weren't quite fast enough to get their things in the driers downstairs. A humble patch of dirt is separated off by lean planks of wood, serving as the resting place for this apartment building's sad excuse for a community garden. Unfortunately, the local pigeon grouping has claimed the spot for their own uses, as well as the bird roost it sits beside. If it's any consolation, the birds seem quite content and healthy. r
Josephine's Apartment The main room of this apartment is spacious and open, a long bar-counter the only thing separating the small kitchen from the rest of the space. A couch, loveseat, two easy chairs, and a coffee table make up the significant portion of the living room. A few stands and a pair of curio cabinets show off a display of expensive-looking knick-knacks, all artfully arranged and seeming to be kept meticulously clean. Various artwork adorns the walls. The coffee table is glass-topped, revealing that its stand is in fact a shelf stuffed to capacity with books of varying genres. The last thing worth note is pillowed basket in one corner, the sleeping place of one Inari, an orange cat with black and white markings reminiscent of a fox, who wanders the apartment at will. apt 22
Josephine's Apartment Bedroom The bedroom is small but cozy, painted in dark greens and lined with deep-colored wood and gold accents. The king-sized bed sits with its headboard against the center of the right wall, flanked by twin bedside cabinets topped with matching gold lamps. A large desk is pushed against the far wall by the closet door, and the remaining space on that wall filled by floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. An overstuffed chair is caddy-cornered in the open space between the shelves and the bed, facing the room. The left wall bears a long, low dresser; bottles, brushes and picture frames litter the surface, and an enormous mirror hangs on the wall above. Half-open blinds cover the windows above the bed and cabinets. apt 22, b
Doreen's Apartment XXX apt 23
Johner's Apartment This small one-bedroom apartment is clearly the domain of a single man who likes order. The entire apartment is done in beige and brown. The kitchen holds the usual necessities, and a small table with a single chair. The living room holds a large, overstuffed black leather chair, a small end table on which a coaster sits at all times, a large-screen TV and radio in an entertainment unit, a rack of CD's and DVD's, a large bookcase that holds police procedure and NYC/NY state law tomes, and a large, securely locked gun safe. The bedroom is equally neat, with a king-size bed, dresser, and nightstand and nothing more visible. The bathroom is kept painfully neat, and the only signs it gets used is the bottle of shampoo and the bar of soap in a soap dish sitting on the rim of the tub. apt 25
Alyssa's Apartment While the apartment is somewhat bare - after all, 2 dorm rooms, one shared, doesn't offer many decorations or whatnot while moving - the duo living there has still managed to make it homey. The front door opens into the living room, where the walls are painted light blue with navy trim, cream carpet covering the floor. A comfortable looking couch, made for corners, is put into it's proper place in the far corner of the living room, with end tables on either side. A few bookshelves are pushed against the walls as well, holding video games, DVDs, and books, and pressed against a small part of the bar that separates the living room and kitchen is a TV stand with a TV and PS2 on it. The kitchen isn't as large as the one they left, but it is still a good size for a one bedroom apartment. The carpet doesn't extend into the kitchen, instead turning into tile flooring, though the clors of the walls stay the same. The cabinets are made of light colored wood, and the counter tops are white to match the stocked refrigerator, oven, and microwave. On the other side of the living room, a door leads into the sole bedroom of the apartment. Here, a queen sized bed, with dark blue sheets and a navy and light blue striped bedspread is in the middle of the far wall, nightstands on either side of the bed, near the head and a large chest of drawers sits at the foot of the bed. There's a door on either side of the bedroom, one leading to a small walk-in closet, the other leading to a bathroom with a large shower, dark tile floors, and a single sink. apt 32
Garrett's Apartment XXX apt 34
Rene's Apartment Upon entering this apartment, one often feels at ease. The place is quite large, and plants and flowers seem to be perched everywhere, hanging down and blooming about peacefully. The apartment is painted in a light, near-white blue, the large glass balcony window on one wall seeming to help generate the soft color of the paint and bulbs with nature's own light. The carpet is a soft, fluffy beige, pieces of comfortable furniture over it. There is a door leading to a closet near the entrance. A large, fairly new plush sofa-bed of dark blue and a matching loveseat sit around a wooden coffee table, and a matching chair is propped nearby. A medium-sized wooden entertainment center adorns the far wall. The den walls that do not have anything else are home to some bookshelves and such. A set of cupboards and a bar reside across from the oven and sink in the long kitchen, which is astride the living room. The table at the end of the kitchen has two chairs and a restaurant-like bench, and appliances are abundant over the counter. On the other side of the den near the window, a door opens into the main bedroom. The bed is abnormally large and covered in soft objects such as pillows and a comforter, though sometimes a plush animal pops out. There is a wide window in the bedroom, a large place despite its outwardly small look; the closet is inordinately big. There is a desk area in the corner, and also a door to the bathroom. The pretty bathroom itself has wide mirrors and a large jacuzzi-bath-shower. The other bathroom door leads back to the den. Overall, this is a cozy, oft floral apartment, quaint and comfortable, though sometimes strange things have been known to occur mostly on behalf of the plant life and the professions of the owner. Four cats live here, all calicos: Rene(m), Napoleon(f), Florence(f) and Damian(f). There is a large, sentient potted vine by the name of Charmi on the bookshelf, and here and there other plant-creatures happen to appear. apt 35
David's Apartment XXX apt 41
Julien's Apartment Understated opulence claims this spacious and well-kept three-bedroom apartment, the decor throughout the whole of it of the highest quality and carefully chosen. The front door opens onto the entrance hall, a closet close at hand to receive coats and shoes — the pale hardwood floors gleam underfoot, unsullied by tracked-in mess from outside. The living room beyond the entrance is all dark woods and pale earth tones, comfortable couches and armchairs and a thick soft rug laid down beneath. A large and painstakingly aquascaped aquarium stands against one wall, with several brightly coloured species of fish within. Most of the rest of the wall space, notably, is taken up with shelves — shelves crammed with books of every subject and genre. Through a doorway lies the kitchen which, in contrast, is sleek and modern and well-appointed, stocked by someone who takes their cooking seriously. And takes their alcohol equally seriously — to one side of the kitchen there is a fully-stocked bar. Julien's bedroom, in contrast to the paler, earthy scheme outside, is warm and rich, decorated in deep reds. The exquisitely crafted furniture is dark, with reddish undertones to the mahogany wood. The king-sized bed is stocked with an overabundance of pillows, and more cushions rest in the windowseat. One wall holds a spacious walk-in closet. A table, low to the ground, sits on a thick rug between the bed and the entrance, the right height for kneeling rather than chairs; the checked pattern carved into its surface marks it as a chessboard, though the pieces are not in evidence. The bathroom connects both to the bedroom and to the living room; it is large, done in black marble, with an overly spacious glass-walled shower and a similarly large jacuzzi bathtub. The other two bedrooms, in strange departure from the rest of the apartments style, seem decorated more with younger occupants in mind. One of them, styled largely in purples and blues, has a pair of twin beds with matching butterfly-patterned bedspreads and a similar fabric for the window curtains; a wealth of stuffed toys is neatly arranged on both. The other is very green, its bedspread green-and-black striped; the walls are covered with a host of movie posters. Also oddly, they are both painfully well-kept — with no personal belongings in sight, they hardly seem lived in at all. apt 42
Jenny's Apartment The apartment is not quite posh, but it's definitely not been furnished by someone middle class either. The walls have been painted a soft, buttercream yellow, with darker wood trim. That same rich, chocolate brown is echoed in a leather living room set and a wooden coffee table and end table (on which sits a vibrantly pink poinsettia) situated in toward the middle of the main room, which has been divided into three sections. To the right of the front door is a small wooden dining table of that same rich wood color, poplar perhaps, with four simple yet elegant chairs. To the left is the kitchen, and the only place in the apartment where lush, coffee-colored carpet is replaced by stone tiles. The kitchen cabinetry echoes the same dark wood theme and sports sleek black appliances and marble countertops. An island helps to separate it from the rest of the apartment, and is flanked by two barstools. apt 45
Jenny's Apt Euphoria's Room Jenny's room is quite different compared to the main room of the apartment. Her walls are starkly white, as is the furniture and down comforter on the queen sized bed. Hanging from the ceiling, attached in the corner where ceiling meets wall near her bead, is orange and pink fabric, draped down on along the back and partway down the sides of the bed. There is a door leading to a small, full bathroom to the right of the door, which stands next to the sliding door of a slightly recessed closet. Against the opposite wall, to the left of the door into the room, is a white desk-like table. No real work appears to take place here, but it seems to be used primarily as a bookshelf. At the desk sits a white ball chair with orange upholstery. Underneath the bed and the chair, and covering most of the painted white floor, is a large, brightly colored area rug. Polkadots! apt 45,er

Valmont's Apartment The appartment of Dr. Valmont Christensen is one of a contemporary style. In his bedroom there is a large pentagram on the floor. The place is decorated with many trinkets and artifacts from his many journeys, placed inside the closet is a small gun box, holding two Walther PPK chrome pistols. The windows and door leading to the outside are locked by a magical force when Valmont is not at home, so those of you who are in here when he is not, nice try. apt 51

Teagan's Apartment The Buchanan's apartment opens into one spacious room, parted into different sections only by the careful placement of furnishings. The large space is made all the more freeing by the clean glass sky-light that spans over the entirety of the main room's ceiling. Some might think of it like living in a veritable fish-bowl, but the view above seems to be worth the potential invasion of privacy - making visible the great open abyss. It certainly distracts from the lived-in quality of the apartment and the many accumulated little girls' toys that seem to pop up here and there. The room has sandy hardwood flooring from wall-to-wall. Tarnished in a few places. It isn't new, but generally kept moderately clean. All of the walls are painted alternatively an unassuming light blue-grey and tan, save for the small portions of the ceiling that are not glass which are left white. Closest to the entrance is the 'Living Room' space, created by a large used micro fiber couch and matching love-seat. Both are tan. They are accented with dark blue throws and dec-pillows. While there is plenty to do in this area, there is no television. Bookshelves. Games. Yes. But no television. The kitchen area is tucked around the far corner of the room, lined with dark-blue marble-topped counters and cabinets. None of the appliances are new, but again, they are clean. Mostly.. It is difficult to keep completely tidy when you're a single parent with two young girls running around. Color-wise, the room is actually quite relaxing - giving the general impression that one is at the beach.. not in a flat in the city. apt 53
Teagan's Apt Bathroom Less spacious than the rest of the apartment, the bathroom is actually rather cramping. Not quite as clean as one might have hoped, it is scattered with various children's toys and other hygiene-type products and bottles. apt 53,b
Teagan's Apt Bedroom Teagan's bedroom is probably the cleanest room in the apartment, likely because it gets the least amount of traffic. Lined with faded beige carpeting, all but one of the walls I are left white - the far one where the bed's head rests again is painted a bright red that dims black when it's dark. The bedspread is white and cream. It's a nice room. apt 53,mb
