Things Visible in the Windows of the Apartment Building Across the Way

TO THE WINDOWS! TO THE WALLS!10. A man with a shaved head, wearing a white hooded robe with black stripes, doing arm exercises.

9. Movie credits playing on a television the size of an entire wall.

8. A young woman and a small fluffy tan dog, napping together on top of the bedcovers.

7. A medium-young man, not particularly fit, sitting shirtless at a computer all day and into the night.

6. Two workers with a stepladder, repainting an empty unit.

5. A young man and woman at their bed, at lunchtime on a weekday; his feet on the floor and her feet behind his ears.

4. A bamboo plant turning yellow.

3. A young woman in a housedress, pushing her face out the window to smoke a cigarette.

2. A woman rising and dressing for work. A man, in the same window, rises three hours later and gets on his computer.

1. A man in a dress shirt and tie, looking at my building with binoculars.

Anonymous lives, obviously, in New York City.

Ooooh, more like this please.

I can't see anyone out my apartment windows, but I am fairly sure people can see me, which is someting I ought to remember.

That reminds me, please feed your cat as he looks quite hungry. Also, love the color you chose for the guest bathroom!

Ooh, thank you! I was worried the purple was a bit much.

I see Raymond Burr, yawning.

You mean he's finished fucking his houseboy?

I'm a proud proponent of walking around your house naked with the blind open. Once I found out how much the apartments cost in the building across the way, I figure those people paid for a good show.

(from outside the door) …delivery ma'am, pizza…

No Ma'am I'm a dolphin.

Whenever I watch TV or movies where people never close their blinds for all sorts of activities, I always roll my eyes because it seems so unrealistic. But then I read things like this. So apparently I am just weird?

Also, that picture is making me feel really dizzy.

really what is the point of an apartment if you aren't going to strut around nude with the curtains parted

It never really sunk in that anyone could really see anything until I got a Christmas card from a vaguely lascivious neighbor who I had spoken to exactly once and didn't know exactly which house was his. Using the return address on the card, Google Maps showed me that his back windows looked directly into mine. *shudder* I mean *shutter*

Do you live across the street from my apartment?

I thought the same thing! My wife leaves for work at 6 am; I work from home, and start at around 9 am.

The neighbor behind us (…living room looks into backyard) didn't rent the Inflatable Party Castle for his kid this year. Other than that, not much to report.

fuuuck. it's not a party without a brinca brinca.

Now that all the leaves are starting to fall, I should probably wear pants more often.

garge (#736)

Nooooo! Solidarity in pantslessness!

Slava (#216)


Guys, guys, I said should!

I had neighbors across the street who had sex in the window. The woman would lean forward on her forearms with head out the window and the man would do the deed on her that way. This accompanied by the kind exaggerated moaning and yelling which you might expect from this ostentation.

BadUncle (#153)

It's the same old view, day in day out. The Nudlies walking around their apartment, a murder or two, and a bear stealing pies from kitchen counter cooling racks.

Anonymous postings lead to the self-destruction of a site. You may be wondering how I know.

In the thumbnail this post's illustration sort of looks like the cover of Red Medicine.

So … only one of the 41 combinations referenced in this post, huh? I would have expected at least two or three …
