Thinking about getting a pied a Terre in NYC, and since I don't live in a high rise currently, I have lots of questions - like:

How do you get large quantities of stuff upstairs?

Say you have an Uber or Lyft take you to and from the grocery store and you stock up on stuff - you might have 4-6 bags of groceries, cases of water, etc.

You can get all of this in the car, but then what? How do you manage to get it ALL upstairs? What are the methods and procedures?

Thank you!

Hahahahahahaha
Thatís a good one!!!!

When I first saw the topic of this thread, I was confuse.

That was a good laugh.
OP, in general, there is a cart in those building where they can let you borrow it and return it back to the lobby.

So everything has to fit in one cart? I can't see how you could get a case of water and four-six bags of groceries in that cart.

You've seriously never heard of making more than one trip? This is almost trolling.

No, it is not "almost trolling." Ugh.

If you had to make more than one trip, would your stuff be safe downstairs?

I would not know because I have not experienced it.

I bet you don't know everything about how to live where I currently live either.

It falls under "almost trolling" because this thread follows a litany of others from you about all sorts of hypothetical situations involving some future (but yet uncertain) move to NYC.

Stands to reason given large number of middle to large apartment buildings in city people long ago (even those living in buildings without elevators) have found ways to cope with "getting stuff" to and from their apartments. This is just common sense, answer is same for NYC as it would be anyplace else.

Okay, this irritates me. All of my posts have been sincere. I am sorry you don't approve of my time-line!

It is not common sense because I don't know how safe it would be to leave lots of stuff on the first floor while you lug a cart up to however many floors.
