Everything went perfectly; I now live in a cute little 2-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn.
I drove in on the Brooklyn/Queens expressway at sunset on Monday evening- such a view! My roommate Bob had corralled a bunch of friends to help relay my boxes upstairs, and when we were done a mere 1/2 hour later I parked my pickup down the way (on "Hodgkin St.!") and drank a pitcher of margaritas in the Mexican restaurant downstairs.
There's a lot of work to do before I'm truly settled, but the bottom line is I made it. Thank you everyone for your well wishes.
What could possibly go wrong?
