The Craigslist ad says:

Space boasts full, galley kitchen, parkay wood floors, HUGE bedroom closet, large coat closet, AMAZING bathroom with gigantic tub with window, picture windows in bedroom over looking terra-cotta roof to Mt. Pleasant library. Located at 16th and Lamont in a 1938 art deco style bldg. the apt. is 1 blk. from Mt. Pleasant (Marx Cafe, Mt.

Does $1185 sound reasonable for this studio?

    I’ve always been curious about this building. I’d move there for that in a heartbeat if I wasn’t lazy.

    Is this the building we judged previously that had a roach problem?

  • sb

    600? And parkay is a buttery spread, which could be interesting for floors but probably not too desirable.

    now that I’m done being a grump, it’s a good deal unless it’s infested with something.

    • sb

      that was supposed to say “<600" isn't very spacious…

    I dunno, I pay $150 less for a full 1br with washer/dryer in dupont/logan. doesn’t seem like a good deal to me, even if it is the going rate for a studio.

      To Steve: your place in dupont/logan is it in a building? And if so, who can I contact for availability of a 1br? That seems like a fantastic deal.
