Hey onthefly....I also live in apt building and that why my first kayak was a cobra explorer I use to walk it up 4 flights of stairs. I also bought a junker car to keep the kayak on all summer and used the car to just transport it to and from water. youre in a tough spot being in the city, I wonder if you could get a small kayak in you elevator. What I think you should do is find out about storage at some club somewhere and just pick it up when you want it, there are some on the hudson, I am not sure about leaving it on a car , one thing I found out is that if there is a will there is a way.
oh here I am in a picture-dont I look at peace with myself? How could you not get a kayak
