  • Sadness covers me.

    • Thank you for making me laugh….and reminding me that I am not alone. lol.

      Another poor non profit employee.

  • Saw this when it was for sale 5 years ago. A nice unit but crazy overpriced at $7000+ a month. If I recall the owner was a big party girl and eccentric…maybe you get something extra for the price.

  • At $7,400 per month, that’s roughly a $1.4M mortgage plus property taxes at current rates. Nice place, but seems like you could get a lot more for your money elsewhere and the location isn’t really all that.

      Right? Why would you RENT when you could get pay the same or less on a mortgage for something you own?

        Because not everyone wants the responsibilities of home ownership? Although I’d guess that anyone who could afford that rent could also afford to outsource many of the responsibilities of home ownership.

      • I was trying to point out that someone could either (1) purchase something as nice or nicer for the cost of the rent for this place or (2) rent something equivalent for less and/or rent something better for the same price. Clearly owning isn’t for everyone, but at this price, I just wanted to point out the cost of the rent is the equivalent of owning a place with a $1.4M mortgage. I don’t see this apartment as worth that much.

  • Seems spectacularly overpriced to me.

  • Really wish we could do Afternoon Rental Options Revisited. Would love to see what this ends up renting for. I’d think that surely $7,000 a month rents much better units than this. But there are many foolish people with a great deal of money from which they can’t help but be parted.

  • looks like christian bale’s apartment in American Psycho

  • My neighbor tried to rent a bigger, and arguably nicer, place than this for $6,000. They weren’t successful in finding a tenant. Oh, and it is in a better location. So I’m guessing $7,400 won’t happen, unless they find a huge sucker.

    Good luck parking on Sundays with that church across the street.
