Governor’s Island Houses

During our big day of adventures in Governor’s Island, Rachel and I explored some of the houses that were open. One of the homes had a gallery of paintings on the first floor. Nobody was around, so we quickly bolted upstairs to check out what was there. In terms of actual objects, not much was there, but the empty hallways and pre-war rooms had a romantic and haunting quality to them.

    Beautiful beautiful! Can I move there? I think it would be worth the lead paint poisoning and commute.

    We have to go back, you know. Just saying.

    I might have to move there. The bathroom tile is in decent condition and the wood floor looks nice! <3 old houses.
