When I was a little girl, I read a book called A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (Le Lys de Brooklyn), and I imagined Francie, the main character living in a building like this one. She’d sit out on the fire escape and talk with her friends. To me this was New York city.
Notice the watertank at the top of the building? I don’t know what more recent buildings do so that you get water in your building, but this morning, I would have loved my hotel to have one of those on its roof. When I woke up, there was no water.
I was sent a complimentary bottle of water though. 😉 At least I won’t be thirsty.
One tends to forget what these normal things are but when there is no water, it means no flushing the toilet, no brushing your teeth, no taking a shower! What can be worse? No power, I guess. Hope the situation doesn’ last too long.
Update: it’s back! I am now clean and can face the day!
