Life Without Air Conditioning

...is really no life at all in NYC.

I'm dying here in our sweltering apartment.

I would've purchased an air conditioner long ago, but Pink insisted, "We'll just get ceiling fans. I've never had AC, there's no need. We'll be fine with fans."

Now, I knew we wouldn't be able to get ceiling fans installed in time for summer, but I went along with it because every time I said I was going to buy an AC, she'd go on the above rant.

How long did it take her to change her mind?

About two hours in our apartment on an 80 degree evening.
She conveniently wasn't here for the 90 degree weekend.

I've placed an order to get an AC, but keep in mind, I'm pretty broke. I had to get it off a site where shipping was minimum 2 weeks.

So far, I've taken two showers this evening in order to cool off from the thick heat that is almost impossible to sleep through.
Any other suggestions on how to get through these next two weeks are welcome.

Convention centers act as large gathering places for businesses and other organizations. Some even double as civic centers and host political rallies, high school graduations and community meetings. The space is usually large and open so that everyone and all of the necessary tools for an event can be gathered in a single area. Convention centers often require the placement of portable air conditioning units in order to keep the inside of the building cool. There are several aspects to the events that are commonly held in the building that result in the need for portable air conditioners. J Davidson
