This is what $750 per month will get you in NYC...with no lease, illegal basement conversion (that's below ground), damp and flood prone, 10 minute walk to train and 4 months up front. In Greenpoint Brooklyn, no less- a place that only 2 years ago was "too far from the Bedford L train" for most people looking to move to Brooklyn. So for all of you starry eyed, "under $1000" folks out there, don't get your hopes up! This one rented 5 months ago in about 30 minutes. The landlord was an asshole and I barely got to snap off these shots. That's all I wanted really....was to capture all of the greatness that can be had in a 385sf illegal basement converted studio. Sorry for the stitching job, but i already helped this picture out waaay too much by making it somehow seem bigger than it is- not that I was trying. You can't shine a turd and call it gold- although many of my fellow realtors would like to believe the converse.
I just wanted you guys to know, so you can maybe get real about your apartment search. The only reason i was able to even see this one is because i live down the block. Times are tough in NYC real estate. And its getting cold. LoftNinja refused to even go take a look. As it turns out, he's afraid of water.
