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.


I need to place a bulk order.

Sounds reasonable. Think there's any chance they're also in the business of selling bridges?

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.


By that you mean the closet size, right?  How large is the rest of the apartment?

//i keed, I live in SoCal.  my last place was 800sq on the beach, which I guess would be a palace comparitively

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.


HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAHAHAHAHHHAAA

Where I live $2700 won't rent you a damned thing because nothing is that expensive

It would be interesting to see what the free market can do

I bet the end result is better than "government control"
