Moving Out: A Top Secret Note for the New Tenants

Moving Out: A Top Secret Note for the New Tenants

So you've packed all the boxes, filled all the nail holes, scrubbed all the surfaces, and now it's time to go start your new life in a new home. And then, before you say your final farewell to your old home, you decide to leave a note for the new tenants …

That's exactly what Daniel from Manhattan Nest decided to do when he left his adorable apartment for new digs in Brooklyn. Daniel's reasoning was simple:

"Mostly I thought — if these people were anything like me — they'd have fun stumbling upon some covert correspondence from the previous occupant of their new home. Like a midnight visit from a ghost or receiving an email from a wealthy Nigerian prince in desperate need of an overseas bank account, something about it would make them feel special. Chosen."

How wonderful is that? I'm a big fan of secret notes. I've been known to leave them in hotel room drawers and behind friends' bookshelves so I think Daniel's top secret note for the new tenants in his old apartment is absolutely delightful!

And the best part? Daniel actually received an email from the new tenant! After finding his top secret note, the new tenant emailed Daniel to thank him for it and also share the updates on what has happened to the apartment since he moved out.
