Quickly ran downstairs to drop off my recyclables and beforehand, noticed that my heater wasn't really on. Ran into a neighbor where we proceeded to complain about the absurdity of the building. And how people left garbage in the hallway, etc. And I said that I'm often ashamed to invite friends over although it's always entertaining to hear the reaction when I say I live on St. Mark's Place. His response, "you will get over that fast."
