High rise living. Bossy grew up on the 19th floor of this high rise cluster in the middle of the city. The apartment was modest in size for a family of four, but made more expansive by its square usable rooms and floor to ceiling windows.
In this life, binoculars were as necessary as telephones. One peek determined if the people below were carrying umbrellas, or wearing scarves and mittens. Tracking tugboats and watching approaching storm fronts were just a couple of Bossy’s favorite binocular pastimes, along with spying on the NFL player who lived one floor up in the adjacent building.
In a way, Bossy thinks apartment dwellers are more connected to life– maybe because they’re not buried under projects that involve weeds and gutters and dank basements overrun with rusty paint cans.
