Yes, not much room is needed... unfortunately, room in NYC is measured in different terms than everywhere else in the country. The sad thing is, I live in Brooklyn and when my Manhattan friends saw my place for the first time they all gushed about how much room I have. They couldn't believe how big my apartment is.
I have 1 sink. It's in the kitchen. No room in the bathroom for one. (It's what you call a 2 piece bathroom.) And half of the 1 sink is about to be comandeered for processing.
To be honest, I don't blame her for being mifffed.
Seriously though, you guys have girlfriends that ENJOY having their pictures taken? She'll sit if I make her, but it isn't exactly her favorite thing.
