I was just browsing the apartments for rent on craigslist, looking for a friend who wants a $1300 studio, and found this outrageous ad for what looks like a basement room lined with kitchen equipment on one side, and a "bathroom down the hall shared with the super" for $1400 in JH. I was thinking rents were going up but that seems delusional on the part of the person placing the ad. What do you think?http://newyork.craigslist.org/que/abo/4313998606.htmlThis is a studio style open space, renovated and looks really nice. By NY standards, this place is a lot of space.The kitchen is new with nice size cabinets and granite counter tops. The bathroom is in the hallway and shared with the super.The studio could come fully or partially furnished.The apartment has access to a very large yard.Pet is ok on a case to case basis.WiFi access available. Utilities are tenant responsibility, a flat fee bundle can be discussed.Transportation - within walking distance to E F G R 7 trains, can also bus (Q32, Q33) from front of the house if wishing to skip the walk. About 45min from doorstep to midtown area in commuting hours.This is an ideal place for a professional, tight roommates, or couple (max occupancy is 2).
Shelby--That place looks like a MESS but a yard and possible furnished could draw in people but it does not warrant $1400! I pay $400 less and I have a 1bedroom in prime JH!
