A: This apartment has three rooms and a bath. Here's the kitchen.

B: What about closets?
A: You'll have two large ones in the bedroom. One has shelves and a built-in shoe rack. Then there's a storage closet in the living room and a linen closet in the bathroom.
B: The living room looks sort of dark.
A: We're painting it a lighter color, and it gets the afternoon sun.

B: Well, let me see. What would be the quickest way? I'll tell you. Go to the end of This block, turn right, and walk six blocks. Then turn left for three blocks. There's a Big intersection there. You can't miss it. The main business section is three or four blocks south of the intersection.
