My dream housing in New York City is to buy an old firehouse or small warehouse (or a shell of a building) to house a motorhome. The idea of being able to DRIVE my apartment out of the City when I feel like it is just so appealing.

I see a lot of motorhomes around Manhattan, most of them seem to be used by tv and film production crews.

I did see a horror story though on the net from this couple that made the mistake of drving a motorhome with a large propane tank into the city. They were not allowed to use the tunnels.

There are a lot of possible models for motorhomes in NYC:

( a ) the Port Authority on 8th Avenue is a model for how motorhomes could be housed in a co-operately owned structure;
( b ) any structure that houses City buses would also serve as a model on how to house motorhomes;
( c ) an area like Randall's Island could be turned into a Motor Home HUB for internet start-ups.

The Safari Trek is a "small" motorhome which does not have a separate bedroom. In the Trek, the sleeping area is pulled down from the ceiling in the back of the Trek.

Trailers in the Sky - www.honation.com

Sometimes I think that there could not possibly be another person on the planet who had gone in and out of as many different worlds as I have. My world, at least the world that I grew up in in Louisiana, is, as you might imagine, different from New York City. I think that one of the reasons why I like tourist from Canada and Europe so much is that we have this "pretending to fit in" thing in common (when in fact we are operating on a completely different operating system than New Yorkers are).

Anywho, one day as a result of needing cash immediately, I took a job to be an assistant to this guy who installed and maintained/repaired air conditioners in apartments in New York City. I ended up going into apartments in New York City that I probably never would have otherwise entered. Here are my observations:

Some of the apartments we went into were considered "luxury"/"expensive" but they all looked small and silly, except for one apartment which was two levels and belonged to the owner/builder of the apartment building that it was in.

Also, in every apartment, no matter how high priced or luxurious it was suppose to be, there was always dirt and filth around the air conditioner once you removed the front cover. In the most expensive apartment, the one belonging to the owner of the building, there was actually a lot of water that had gotten into the air conditioner area and there could have been all kinds of God knows what kind of mold growing in there.

Another apartment we went to had two bedrooms, a large (by NYC standards) master bedroom for this couple and a little bedroom for their child. The couple that lived in this apartment had designated this little area in their living room between their sofa and the window as a play area for their child, as this area was full of all kinds of little toys.

As I looked around this couple's apartment, of course I wondered how much they could be paying to live in this two bedroom apartment in Manhattan on the 28th floor. You can only imagine what kind of jobs these two people would have needed to afford such a place. And, as I looked around the apartment, another thing that struck me was that there really wasn't much in it. There wasn't anything in the apartment that looked really expensive and, what struck me about almost all of the apartments, was that there was little if anything in the apartments that looked PERSONAL. I mean all of the apartments had your generic looking furnishings, and it looked like if you took the furnishings out of one and put them in another, no one would notice.

As I looked around what had to be an expensive two bedroom apartment that any New Yorker would probably brag about having, it just seemed to me that the total living area had to be less than what you would have in your basic trailer in a trailer park.

In fact, all of the apartments (except for the huge apartment of the owner of that one building) looked like little trailers in the sky.

Did you see "A Clockwork Orange"?

In the movie A Clockwork Orange, Alex breaks into this building/house and there is this old woman living in it with a lot of cats. The old woman was walking around the place in a thing that looked like a one piece swim suit. Alex runs into trouble trying to rob the woman's house and is arrested.

Well, when I was helping this air conditioner guy, when we went into this one expensive apartment, the old woman who lived in the apartment answered the door wearing what looked like a one-piece swimsuit. The first thing that went through my mind was the movie A Clockwork Orange.

Trek MotorHome

The Motorhome pictured above is a Trek Motorhome. A Trek Motorhome was featured on a CBS evening news spot. The spot showed a retired woman driving around the country in a motorhome instead of retiring to Florida.
