Her 15 Pixels Of Fame

Monday’s post was intriguing: A Greenwich Village woman asked whether she should move to Westport.

She appreciates her possible new townmates’ suggestions — over 100 so far. Here — drum roll, please! — is her response:

The comments just keep rolling in. I can’t stop reading them. They’re making me laugh out loud, cringe and in the end smile with joy.

We have our inspection today, and will know by the end of the week if Westport is our final destination. Fingers crossed!

My fingers are crossed too. I spent an hour with this wonderful woman on Monday. She is smart, caring, talented, energetic, and very cool — exactly the type of person who will thrive here, and contribute so much to our community.

Plus, her 2-year-old is the cutest kid I’ve ever seen. (No offense to all the others.)

I really hope she moves here. And once in town, I hope she gets to meet the “06880” crowd: everyone who encouraged her to come, and those who told her to stay away.

You’ll all love her.

The view from Our Hero's Greenwich Village apartment this morning. She may soon trade the balcony for a deck, and a brownstone for deer.

    So did the 2 year old show early soccer skills?

  2. Simply put: there is always a place in town for another ‘nice family.’ We so need that and they appear, certainly, to fit the bill. Welcome!

  4. So, is her brownstone on the market? I wonder how much. I’m ready to go back…..

    I spent a few moments reviewing the comments on the original posting… One thought that was never covered by any poster was this… When living in NYC and you are of means you send your child to private school… And from my understanding it is cut throat… The stories I hear are there are waiting lists and all sorts of silliness in getting into preschool too… So I think Westport would be much a simpler life in many many ways… Just saying
