Where are the people who rent these places going to store their fixies, mustache wax, and late-era Scott Walker records?

It's all what you want out of life, I suppose, but personally I would have to be offered a WHOPPING amount of money to live anywhere near NYC.  As in enough to fully retire after one year or less and immediately move.  I briefly lived in a very small city and hated it there.  I'll keep my 3+ acres in the woods and it's only a 10 minute drive to the nearest Walmart.

Just as city life sounds terrible to me.  To each their own, I can't knock anyone for living where they are happy.

No it isn't. It's about what I think you should want out of life.

You're clearly doing it wrong, and that upsets me. Your happiness only counts as long as I approve of it.

Same goes for the big city folks. You're only as happy as I say you are.

We clear, losers?

As Mitch points out, it's up to you how many bedrooms it has.  This bedroom has an oven in it.

Nah, three full sized normal bedrooms.  One of them has a jacuzzi in it, but that's kind of awkward so that's for guests.

Dude you're going to need an extra bedroom or two just for her shoes, handbags, and once-worn outfits.

I'm with you, I'd rather hear coyotes than car horns. And not just because I can shoot the coyotes.

while you're there, try the $50 veal parm. it's great!
 
2013-05-08 04:31:45 PM
Well, it's illegal to call something a "1br apartment" and have no windows on either the bedroom or the living room.

FlashHarry: while you're there, try the $50 veal parm. it's great!


Sometimes $50 a plate is worth it. I would need to read reputable reviews to drop that kind of coin for food. I am going to drop a good $300-400 on a meal tonight at Blue Hill, the one on the Rockefeller Estate. But there's enough written on that to make it reputable, plus we have eaten there before, and it lives up to its reputation.

I literally just got a recommendation on Carbone. I will need to read more to see if it's worth the price of admission. Hell, Babbo (Battalli's place) has gone downhill and we don't eat there anymore, and I thought Del Posto was delicious, but still a massive ripoff. 11 Madison Park, however, is worth any price I pay, because that's just uniquely incredible. And WD-50 is so strange, that unless you can fluently cook in molecular gastronomy, it's the only source for the things you eat there.
 
2013-05-08 04:42:00 PM
I would gladly pay $50 for really good veal parm.

Also, I had a friend who lived in the lower east side, next to Chinatown, and her place was really nice. It was like a 5th floor walk up but she had two big rooms with lots of windows, and she even had a kitchen  - well, a sink. And a shower and toilet. Also her hallways smelled like urine.

Meanwhile I live in a nice tree lined neighborhood in Tampa. I have all the hipster conveniences within walking distance (micro brewery, record store, fixie shop, locavore resaurants, none of which I actually frequent). My house has 2 bedrooms, a large garage, a covered carport, and it's on a huge fenced in corner lot. I pay $600 a month but it's going down to $400 a month for the next year because I'm retiling the floors and painting the entire house. I miss out on the bitter New York winters and I never get to see homeless people pissing on the subway, but I'll make do.

Yeah, uh, no. This is an example of something called "supply and demand." If a shiatload of people want to live somewhere, it will become expensive, period.

Those forced out with the emptying of the asylums back in Reagan's day, as well as those who would have gone into such places had they still be active, had to go somewhere. NY is as good a place as any.

I moved back to Orlando after four years on cape cod, two wicked blizzards and insane rent. Yeah i miss it sometimes, but i do like my 2br/2ba condo with a garage for 630/month. And I'm not more than 20 minutes from work.

See, this is what I really don't get any more. At one time, living in major cities, you got things you didn't get in the sticks. If you wanted to see an arthouse movie, you had to go to a city. If you wanted livarot cheese or gourmet coffee, you had to go to a city. Great bookshops? City.

Most of that comes to me now. Sure, I go to the city to see bands or opera, but that's all now.I'll take my provincial town and a huge saving on mortgage costs.
