brap: mentula: i have a rent controlled apartment, and it's in quite sound conditionI know this is probably a little rushed and given the fact you don't know me, may come as a shock but....*gets down on one knee*Will you marry me?
mentula: i have a rent controlled apartment, and it's in quite sound condition
brap: I have mixed feelings as not raising my rent further could negatively impact my "God Bless Our Overpriced Hovel Of A Shiateslum" wood-burned plaque business.
thornhill: kling_klang_bed: I'd have to ask, from people who live in NYC, just how much rent is there.In Manhattan, a one-bedroom walkup averages our around $2,300. In a place as far north as Hamilton Heights it will be less, and in a hot neighborhood like the west village it will be more. A building with a doorman is probably closer to $2,700. Size is about 550 to 650 square feet.
dantheman195: They need to eliminate rent control entirely and allow these units to be market rate, sure the people in rent control apartments will see a rise in rents, but the people who are not part of the lucky club, will see their rent go down.
thisdaydreamer: Sounds reasonable. Think there's any chance they're also in the business of selling bridges?
