We grew up in New York City in a converted warehouse building two blocks from the Hudson River. We are daughters of an indexer and an art therapist. Julia Rooney is a painter, Anne Marie Rooney a poet.
We began mailing each other stuff in 2011. This was the year Julia moved back to New York and Anne Marie moved down to New Orleans.
Since then, we've each moved a few more times. In the movement, we rent a 3.5" x 5" plot of real estate at 527 Hudson Street, the post office we grew up with.
