Ladies and gentlemen I have made it and my computer came today!!! Its nice to be plugged in again.
Must share: last night I headed to AIGA 30: Celebrating the Greatest Hits I ran into my friend Amanda, it was great to see her. In the last few days I was quite negative regarding trying to relocate, last night changed it all, for 10 dollars I saw the design greats and even met Paula Scher!! She is so great. I’m now reinvigorated to pursue my New York designer dreams.
I’ve only been in town for 7 days and seen countless apartments, many frustratingly small and expensive, not talking about Manhattan, our very own Bushwick in Brooklyn. I saw a place that had 6 ft tall ceilings with rafters this dude was cramming 7 rooms into a place built for four and this was on the JMZ line at Myrtle-Wycoff. I dont feel like I need to pay $745 for a window closet.
So the search goes on, the most promising places are in Astoria, Queens most reasonably priced and a great deal. Living off the N or R train is almost like living off the L albeit usually 20-25 minutes to midtown. On my second day, I wanted this apartment with a great cat, good location and cool roommate thought I had it but nothing is ever that easy. It was a close call but now I’m still looking.
If anyone is still looking for a roomie in NY let me know!
