Another weekend, another apartment search, right? Wrong, amigos. This three day weekend was 100% mine; craigslist can kiss my non-irish arse. How come? Because this gal–this gal right here–found an apartment! I’ll give you the stats and then I’ll discuss: 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom, $900.Location: 10 — Central Park Slope. it’s only two blocks to…

If I were going to bet on whether it’d be harder to find someone to take my Chicago apartment or to find decent housing in New York, I would have said the latter. And, I would have LOST. Big Time. Posting in the housing wanted section of Craigslist was the best idea I’ve ever had.…

Jason here. Remember that Mission apartment Jen mentioned on Sunday? The one with the huge garden? Yeah, it’s awesome. It was the first one we looked at, and I don’t think we’re going to find another one that nice (for the price–$1875). It’s one of seven units in an old—but recently remodeled—Victorian house. The unit…

Well, it’s been an interesting summer. In my last entry, I believe I had been rejoicing about finally finding a place that I could afford and everything was looking up.

So, after being incredibly busy with school and also trying to find someplace decent to sublet in NYC for this summer, I’ve finally made somewhat concrete plans. A friend is moving way uptown on Manhattan, and said I could live with him for the summer. It’s a fifth-floor walkup, but I’ve been meaning to lose…

So we found a place and we’re all set to go! The place that I was really excited about ended up not working out because the other couple she showed it to wanted it. She ultimately just didn’t feel comfortable giving it to us, and that’s totally fine. I mean, I was heartbroken until this…

We found a place. Everything we wanted, plus it’s cheap. Somewhere in the middle of seeing bogus place after bogus place (see picture), I snapped and had to talk some sense into my roommates. After the places we saw last weekend, I could tell that they were getting tired of looking around. Yet they still…
