Oh, just leave them to soak.



(I lived in NYC for seven freaking years and I never saw the famous Kitchen Tub. I don't know what I was doing wrong.)

So you might think showing that the tub is in the kitchen wouldn't really be a selling point. But no! The real estate agent has actually shown great restraint in this listing Cory found (click here for the photos). "Claw tub in kitchen," the listing sez... "and toilet in public hallway." Just think of the photo they could have used. Or don't, if you're the sensitive type. Anyway, here's to you, real estate agent with restraint!


Rental; $1,995 a month.

Is it me or is the toilet in public hallway explanation deliberately confusing.

It's just you, Alissa. "...Toilet in public hallway exclusive to the tenant who rents the apartment" makes total sense to everyone else.

I can feel someone watching me from the fire escape. Brr.

Holy cats, when I looked at the place and at the address I was mildly freaked out because I thought it was the actual apartment of one of my friends, ten years ago. It's not, but it's the same building.

It's much nicer now, if you can imagine that.

And yes, her actual toilet, bathroom was at the end of the hall. They had to leave the actual apartment to take a three a.m. pee. It wasn't that bad, in that it isn't actually open to people coming in from the outside of the building (buzzer, or key entry into the buidling) but whenever anyone had a party? Yup, pretty much all the toilets on all the floors saw use, so she couldn't leave so much as a tube of toothpaste in it, or it rapidly walked away.

And for $2000 total purchase price you can get a real bathroom in lovely, bustling, trendy Youngstown Oh.

Make that another one who is very confused.

Maybe a strong drink would make it more clear?

And the lovely claw tub is apparently blocking a door to a closet but we won't nitpick.

"Toilet in public hallway" could be a plus.
1) you don't stink up your own place, just the hall
2) deters freeloading relatives
3) get yerself an indoor outhouse - scuse me - composting terlet & empty Poland Springs bottle and sublet it as a "sanitary efficiency."

Wow! This is a great idea! It's even better than a rental on the property. You can charge $0.50 to use it and $0.25 for the TP. Wait! Charge $0.75 for the TP.

Call me spoiled, but for $2000/mo, I want my own darned toilet. In my own darned suite. And maybe I'm picky that way, but I'd rather not bathe in the kitchen.

Errr. Ok, I decided I needed to actually read the listing. But, that webpage made my eyes bleed. So, my guess is that because the listing is SO bad, they RE agent doesn't actually want people to read it.

I've recently moved within Manhattan and saw two apartments with showers in the kitchen. You're right, though, no tub.
