Ryan Cassidy has the kind of loft most people dream about before moving to New York. Big, bright 15’ windows; a common area perfect for gatherings and stop-bys; an open kitchen connecting the living and dining area; paintings and obscurities decorated throughout. It would be easy to get jealous of Ryan, except that he is a down-to-earth sweetheart with a great sense of humor and an infectious smile, offering you a glass of mint water and some fresh fruit on a hot summer day.
