Quicklink: Pistilli’s House Of Horrors

I was recently contacted by a reporter from the New York Daily News. She was interested in writing a story about Pistilli Realty (which as some of you know own and manage the Astral Apartments). As some of you can probably imagine, I had a few things to say about them. Regrettably they did not make it to print. However, this story is definitely worth a read. Check it out!

Miss Heather:

If you could touch this couch, would you?

Given the fact it hails from Astral I’d say the answer is HELL NO! But the Fictionalist did, Rowan 5 captured it on her camera and thus we have preserved for all posterity of the most interesting* street couches I have ever beheld. Great catch!
