memorial day weekend

NYC started out the summer with a mini-heat wave this past weekend. Temperatures in the upper 80s, and slightly more humid than normal.

The non-tenants finally got the keys to their new place, and are in the process of moving out. This is great for all. really great.

The chimney guys are scheduled in for this Friday, June 3, 2011. I have some concerns about them accessing the roof over the cornice in front.

cornice--damageable with a ladder leaning against it?
