About Heather

As soon as you try to describe your life to strangers, you find that all the words you’d usually choose form an ill-fitting glove. They describe the surface of you but have a tendency to bunch up around the joints and are too tight at the ends.

I’m Heather McTiernan. I live in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx. I work a few days a week at The Bruckner Bar and Grill which is three blocks from my apartment. I garden a block away from that, having adopted a friend’s unloved yard. I live the vast majority of my life inside of ten square blocks. It’s a little strange, my apartment is a mere fifteen minute walk to Manhattan but I almost never take advantage of it.

I live with my boyfriend, Shane Perez. He’s an incredible UrbEx photographer who occasionally coaxes me into having adventures. We share the apartment with my cat Mish, an unnamed betta fish and a ton of plants.

My top 5 desert island albums are:

  • “Early Movie Hits” by Maurice Chevalier
  • “Tallahassee” by The Mountain Goats
  • “I Can’t Be Satisfied” by Various Artists, Shanachie Records
  • “808’s and Heartbreak” by Kanye West
  • “Doolittle” by The Pixies
