latest thing to dream about, just because I can't have it: the priest's apartment in the Fifth Element.
I want it. or something like it. a New York apartment with three high old windows for a south wall, a jumble of bookshelves, couches and beds covered with brocade throws. It should be somewhere in Chelsea or Greenwich Village, at the back of the building. just one room, but large, with a bathroom and kitchenette will be fine.
(off to check down the back of the couch for a spare $750,000 or so...)
and yes, I know I already own some charming old real estate.
