New York City Condo Vlog | Empty Apartment Tour, Painting, Moving with Cats, Trader Joe’s Haul

My boyfriend, Addison Chen, and I moved into our New York City condo! We bought our condo in our 20s during the pandemic and finally closed! This vlog will show you an empty apartment tour! I have another video specifically on the aftermath where we are done with all our updates and furnishing to make it our own home. In addition, moving with cats is always harder than it looks, so I showed you how we did it! Lastly, we did a small little snippet on what we bought from Trader Joe’s. This was actually our first time shopping there! We finally live near one!
