Elevators here are typically small. Our elevator holds five passengers, if they're friendly. (For my Kalamazoo College readers-- it's about the size of the elevator in Dewing Hall.) Some are smaller. When we arrived with our 6 suitcases, we had to take two trips. This points to a more general problem-- how does furniture get delivered? On the outside!

This queen mattress was being delivered to an apartment on our block. One worker attached the ropes and then joined his partner up on the sixth floor. The two guys just hauled the mattress up and pulled it in the window.

See a little movie of this here:
