I’m not going to lie, when I first moved to NYC, I scoffed–scoffed!–at the idea of dropping off your laundry to be done. Who doesn’t do their laundry?
After living here a few years, I realized who doesn’t do their laundry–people working 14 hour days, 7 days a week to make ends meet. For around 65¢/pound, you can have your clothes washed, dried, folded, and even delivered.
I don’t do it often, but when I do it feels very luxurious having folded socks.
