A fireplace has got to be one of the most desired amenities I could find in a home. I have this dream of walking into my house to the sound of crackling and the perfume of wood burning, and settling into a chaise lounge with a warm blanket and my laptop. Lately I’ve been spending time in bars like Employees Only on Hudson and W. 10th which has a beautiful fireplace, and thoroughly enjoying my walks home through Brooklyn Heights where someone on my street is lucky enough to have one. Just last week the New York Times ran this article about how wood burning fireplaces are loosing popularity in the housing market… well the only thing I have to say to that is, good for me! Someday I’ll get my hands on one. Until then, a girl can dream.
