Chelsea, 15th Street at Seventh Avenue

Jensen-Lewis. About 1989, having a little extra money, it occurred to me to spend it on a sofa. Jensen-Lewis had a little ad in the New York Times with a black and white drawing of a couch that looked perfect, so I immediately took the subway down from 110th Street, checked it out, chose my upholstery color (navy blue canvas), and said, deliver it. That is the ideal shopping experience in my opinion.

I still have that couch, by the way, and it's looking a little bedraggled, what with old age and the cats clawing it. Alas, no extra money.
