I ran over to interior designer Brock Forsblom’s apartment when he told me that he and his boyfriend, Australian-born activist and Purpose founder, Jeremy Heimans, were moving owing to the plundered Bowlmor Lanes next door, which is making way for a 23-story condo where one-bedrooms will go for $2 million. “With the promise of two years of excavation and construction, we decided to move,” Forsblom says. “It was all too much!” Luckily, I got a peek at the charming apartment before the moving trucks arrived.
