I used to live in New York City. My first child was born there, I have good friends there, and I still have fond feelings for the city. Public transportation! Restaurants! The Natural History museum! The Unisphere! Pan de yuca!
Until I see a listing like this one that Jax found... and suddenly, my bland suburban neighborhood seems just dandy.
Since it's craigslist and the ad will disappear soon, I'm going to copy and paste the excellent description: "Room Available November 1st. Room is approx. 10x8 (no windows). Room has private bathroom. There is no separation between bathroom and bedroom. Room is in basement. Private, no roommates. No kitchen access but you do have a mini fridge and microwave. Utilities are included. Located less than one block from L train, Bedford Ave and B61 bus. Please email some info about yourself along with how long you are looking to sublet for. (Optional semi-furnished)." "North 7th street at Bedford Ave" $550.
I suppose I'm cheating by having the photo here -- it's not like there's a better photo they could've taken.
