Tommy Moo: 1) Rent $300 Brooklyn apartment
2) Throw away everything inside
3) Seal every seam between every baseboard, floor, cabinet, and wall with caulk
4) Clean everything
5) Spend $1000 on decent second hand furniture
6) Enjoy livable, bug-free apartment for $300/mo
7) Call landlord every week to complain about living conditions so he doesn't figure out that you fixed it and raise your rent

bentley57: YT: Funky Towel Joe's Apartment


Came for this reference, leaving satisfied.

Sounds like the landlord has been watching an old Jerry O'Connell movie.

Naturally, Rudolf gets the tub. You have to sleep on the commode, hanging on to the lavabo for dear life.

$300 a month? You should expected either a rent-controlled pre-war 9 bedroom apartment with quarters for three servants or a bathroom with no floor which you must share with a Russian black bear named Rudolf.

Oh, and I lived in a townhouse for a while that had a few of these lurking about:

Firebrats. They destroyed a few cardboard boxes I had used to move things in by eating away the glue but, otherwise, they were just kind of creepy looking little things you'd catch out of the corner of your eye skittering along the cracks in the floorboards when you turned a light on at night. Every great once in a while you'd catch one under the comforter on the bed too, but the instant the light hit them they took off like a rocket for the walls.

We have these kinds of places in Chicago, too.  They're great if you don't mind the occasional L train noise.

Until the upstairs toilet breaks and you get a flood of sewage.

/How about waterproofing a double wide and paddling up and down the Hudson?

thecptGeotpf: The article mentions "shared bathrooms", so these aren't even apartments, more like rooms in a boarding house.
That's common throughout NYC, actually.  I've had friends who see having your own bathroom as a "perk."


And much of them in recent years were originally apartment buildings illegally turned into rooming houses, usually for immigrants.  I have no friends who would see having their own bathroom as a "perk".

So if you can make one there, you can make one anywhere?
