The pick: "My granite kitchen. I got it from a granite wholesaler in Queens and it was installed by my building super."
What I do with it: "I have an open kitchen so the countertop is a part of my living area. It is rich and has real depth and soul to it. And it is virtually indestructible and maintenance-free. When you have children or a high traffic kitchen it is always appreciated to have something that looks beautiful without a lot of care."
Personal glimpse: "Picking it out was a great experience. My sister and I went to the granite lot and chose from all the raw materials. It is amazing how each piece is different, a natural work of art."
