You know what's great about living in NYC? You can be walking along minding your own business and suddenly look down a block you've never looked down before and see an entire row of restored, turn-of-the-century carriage houses.
I felt like I'd accidentally wandered onto the Universal Studios backlot.
I started taking pictures with my cell phone, fearing that if I came back tomorrow I'd find only Starbucks and Duane Reades.
Then I thought, you know what would look really cool in the vacant lot at the end of our block?
Add it to my post-lottery to-do list.
