Airstream Watch

$35 a month and chicken cordon bleu.... Airstream is chic. Down in Hudson River Park, where the Tribeca Film Festival has set up an outdoor theater, someone had the bright idea to mount a classic silver Airstream on a platform raised ten or so feet off the ground, a kind of garish offering to the gods of hip. Up in Queens, where Airstreams still have more functional than symbolic value, The Times' Corey Gilgannon reports on one Jimmy Hines who has given up apartment living in exchange for a permanent parking spot. "A lot of my friends have kids and bills, and they're all bald," says Hines. "Me, I'm not living large, but life is still good. I'm living on my own terms. I have an apartment on wheels. I can pick up and go whenever and wherever I want." We've always said, the first step in successful Apartment Therapy is that sense of empowerment. So, we salute Jimmy Hines, and hereby offer a free consultation in Flushing whenever alternate side of the street parking regulations are not in effect.... OHR
