I love this laundromat! They actually do my clothes for me – like many people in the city, I don’t have a washer/dryer. They also have a fabulous dog named Deborah, who I call my “rental doggy” – I take her to the park in nicer weather. I love this old building and the sign. This neighborhood has a very eclectic mix of architecture and people.

  1. I can imagine that you love this place, I think, if I were there I would love it, too. Nice story you are telling: beeing lucky, to have a rental doggy …

  2. Another cool image from NYC. The busted up sign adds so much charm. I have lots of rental dogs myself. My cats don’t know about them.

  3. This place looks so interesting, on the street level! for some reason when I think of laundromats I imagine a dark, dank basement somewhere – where nothing clean could possibly emerge from.

  4. This building really has character. I remember how fascinated I was with laundromats as a youngster and doing laundry in them as a college student–never have had anyone do my laundry for me except when daughter #3 comes home and does mine along with her 2 weeks worth (or more) of dirty clothes. I would feel quite pampered to have someone wash and fold my clothes!

  5. Having your laundry done for you must make you feel like royalty! But, it seems like it would take some of the fun out of the laundromat! I used to enjoy sitting and watching the different people waiting for their clothes to dry……kind of like an airport…..lots of stories to invent about them. I haven’t been to one in years and in fact, they’re hard to find out here in the suburbs!

    I like your shot. It has some of the grittiness of the city but still seems to convey that this is a place worth visiting.
