Moving Somerville Residents Let Gravity Carry Their Furniture Out

The last day of the month means residents moving in and out of apartments sometimes find creative ways of doing the heavy lifting, or – as in this viral video – avoiding it altogether.

Jill Dresser took this video of a sofa making its great escape, thrown through a window in Somerville on August 31, just before September leases were due to begin.

She said the video was taken in the Magoun Square neighborhood of Somerville, a town northwest of Boston, Massachusetts.

“Somerville houses should have bigger stairwells!” Dresser tweeted. Credit: @Jill_Dresser via Storyful
