On the Move

Third Avenue

"Among the other dwellers in this city whom I happen to know, I can think now of only two families or three who are living this spring where they lived four springs ago. And none of us mounts a dubious ladder to hang a picture in October without a gray foreboding that it will have to come down again in May. For, as like as not, we shall be on the move again in May, perhaps because the rent has leaped beyond our reach, perhaps because the house itself is to make room for a new steel thrust at the amused stars."
Alexander Woollcott, Going to Pieces
