  • What’s the catch?

  • What this one doesn’t say, that the CL ad does is that for $1600/month you get to walk two blocks away to do your laundry at the laundromat.

    • Tip to owner of this building: $2,500 got me 2 (used) coin-op washers, 2 (used) coin-op dryers plus the electric/water to supply them. Pays itself off in two years. Maybe under $2,000 for just a washer and a dryer.

  • Also, looks like no central A/C.

  • I’ve toured one of those apts before and if this one is anything like the one I saw (which I’m pretty sure it is) the catches are as follows:

    Listed as a 2 bedroom, the first room is enormous while the second is barely large enough to fit a twin bed. And don’t even think about a closet in the second room.

    There is air, but it’s an in room unit in the large main bedroom, and possible a window unit in the living room.

    BUT, as I said this was just what I noticed while touring a unit similar. Not specifically this one.

  • I live 1/2 block from that unit and honestly its the whole row of apts is disgusting. They should tear them down and start over, especially that ridiculous failed pop up thats been 2.5yrs in the making.
