One day, a little over four years ago, after always being attracted to a particular building's rugged facade, Colin took a chance and rang the superintendent's doorbell. As fate would have it, one of the lofts was vacant and Colin immediately took it! Emily moved in two years later, and since then the couple have called this fourth story loft in central Brooklyn home.
