Did anyone see this in the NY Times last weekend? It’s about people who advertised for rent, at $35 a month, a suspended mattress in their loft. The amazing thing is they got 12 replies. The article also talks about other crazy places people are willing to rent, like a corner of a room separated by a shower curtain.
I know a guy that rents out a bedroom while his roommate sleeps in a tent in the living room. The roommate is a struggling actress who rents out the bedroom in order to save money. I suppose she finds some privacy in sleeping in the tent and that’s why she does that instead of sleeping on the couch. I really don’t know.
I am constantly amazed at the corners people cut in order to live in NYC.
