$1067 sound right for a studio without a full kitchen?

Ed. Note: I lived in one of these in 1998, at that time rent was $500. Man, I’m getting old…

  • Well, it’s nice to see there are plenty of washing machines. And that’s a mighty pretty little bit of flooring. This place could be doable if the non-kitchen space has sufficent electrical to handle various appliances: microwave, hotplate, electric frying pan, etc without blowing fuses. For someone who’s really set on living that far north (and who wants to avoid a group house) this could be a decent starter apartment.

  • no dice!

  • So basically it’s a $35 a night hotel with no cable or internet that you’re trapped in for a year?

    • Yes which isn’t a bad deal. Most of the extended stay places cost over 100 bucks a night still. Its not for me, but for someone who is young, doesn’t cook and doesn’t want roommates, it is fine.

      A lot of people aren’t looking for much more than a place to sleep close in, this fits the bill.

      • If “all utilities included” covers cable, then it’s all the better. This would be OK for an internship – or for a pied-a-terre/office in the city.

  • That is so weird. It’s like one of those painful “Would you rather …?” questions.

    “kitchen? Or $200 a month?”

    Oh wait this is easy, a kitchen, because duh.

  • I hate misleading ads like this. “Gorgeous One Bedrooms” is what the heading is, but once you click on the ad itself, you see $1067 gets you a measly studio without a full kitchen!

  • No kitchen? Who lives in a dump where you can’t even wash dishes?
