The Greyhound bus had once shuttled San Francisco Bay area commuters in the 1960s and ‘70s, so by the time Jessie Lipskin found it in 2015, it had seen better days. Still, the dusty interior lined with seats had plenty of potential, as the New York City native saw it. Indeed, she proved it by turning it into a chic tiny home.
Jessie Lipskin grew up in New York City, and she returned there after a four-year stint studying financial economics at the State University of New York at Binghamton. Her post-grad career kept her in the Big Apple, too, as she has worked for investment bank J.P. Morgan since earning her diploma.
Once back in the city, though, Lipskin told Apartment Therapy that she “had the realization that people waste a lot of time focusing on physical items: purchasing them, misplacing them and subsequently looking for them.” And she began to feel that many material items started to feel “superfluous to a meaningful life.”
