Fire-Escape Chic

Blogon September 3rd, 2006No Comments


It might seem dorky, but having a fire escape is one of my favorite things about my apartment. I use it like a little porch — my friends go out there to smoke; I go out with a book or cup of tea and sit in the sun (and the rain, which I ADORE, although it’s probably not smart to be sitting on metal in a thunderstorm … but I digress). When I’m in big cities like NYC, I love looking at the fire escapes winding up the sides of buildings. I think they’re prettier than intentional porches.

I also love this window in general; it makes my kitchen seem bright and airy and just makes me all-around happy.
